PPA50 and some Punch Fun!

This is going to be a really quick post, since I made and posted this card today! Whew... I was trying to get it done for the PPA color challenge (Gray/Saffron/Choc chip) which is due tomorrow at noon. I LOVE the Gray and Saffron together, but I have to say, I had a hard time with the gray and chocolate chip.
I knew I wanted the card base in Saffron, and LOVE the new DSP Lap of Luxury 120436. Every side is so pretty. Going to love this with the pale pinks too. Umm.
Well back to my card. I fussed around with some choc chip brads, NO didn't like that, ... then I tried the Choc chip ink.... NO didn't like that either..... so as you can see I only managed to sneek in a snip of ribbon for the brown. Oh well, that will have to do. Now for the good news... I DO LOVE the new Elizabeth stamp - 117120.
 Wow!  is that going to get a lot of use in the very near future. Hope you like this one.

Well you know me... have to have some fun too! So my next card is made using lots of punches to make the Owl for a male "get well" card. Isn't he cute. I've seen this punch owl on several blog around, but I'm still looking forward to getting the new Two Step Owl Punch 118074 in my next order, because you know I LOVE owls. Right Hootie?
To finish it off I stamped the sentiment from the new Word Play stamp set (120308 wood or 120651 clear mount) in the new IN color; Pear Pizzazz........ wowzie! This set of 12 will also be one of my favorites to use for just about everything.

Well they are both much nicer in person, but I just HAVE to find the perfect place to take photos, as most seem fade out when posted..... uuummmmm????? I'll have to work on that too.
Well that's all for now... Hootie says "THANKS for stopping by and please leave a comment.

Love your cards, Diane! I think you did an excellent job with the color combo! I love that Elizabeth stamp and love the way you combined it with the patterned paper you used and the embossed background! Very elegant, yet clean and simple! Thanks for sharing!

Di, love your "Elizabeth" card, so clean and simple, yet elegant, great job.
Hootie the owl is funny sure to perk up someone who receives it. I really like the way the sentiment is displayed too.

Now that I have seen how you have used them, I don't know if I can be patient enough for them to arrive! I love the design on your Elizabeth card...very classy! Great job with the color challenge! Thanks for playing @ PPA!
