Trendy Thanks!

How exciting to have a challenge site where the examples are all SU! It really makes me want to use all of SU goodies that tend to get a little neglected. I also love that they are changing up the types of challenges. This week it was a sketch challenge. Here is th PPA sketch challenge
Here is my card
Can you believe I have never used this fun set before today!!! Hoooray for PPA, they had me looking through all of my piles to find the perfect set to use. I was also so excited to use my new dsp called Autumn Meadows. It is so much fun. I adore the wood grain papers as well.
I took my papers from the dsp and used the rock in roll technique on the trees. After not lining then up correctly on my first try, I busted out the stampamajig and had no worries from then on.
It's a good life!

Love your card, Terri! Great job interpreting the sketch! Love the colors you used and how you "rock and rolled" your trees! I'm so glad you joined us again this week for PPA's first sketch challenge! Come play along next week in our first inspiration challenge!

No Way! This is the first time you've used this set?! One of my favorites. Great job on your card. I really like your rock n roll tech on the trees and the matting you put under the trees. Great job. Look forward to seeing what you post next week.

Great job with the sketch! I love your border below the trees! I just love the new Autumn Meadows DSP, too! I am glad that you like how we use SU! products, and that we try to switch the challenges around! Hopefully we will see you back next week. Thanks for playing at PPA!
