OWH's World Card Making Day Hop


Welcome to Handmade By Paula. I hope that you are enjoying the hop. Many thanks to the OWH elves who worked very hard to get all the links in place. To get to the next stop hop on back to the OWH Stars & Stamps blog.


My card is based on OWH sketch #55 turned vertically. You can find the whole collection of sketches here.


Elf Image & Sentiment by Stampin Up • Skandia Papers from Oriental Trading

I created my card with a retired Stampin Up set called Santa's Helpers. Scroll down to yesterday's post to enter for a chance to win this set. 

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Crafting Everyone!

I love this card. Such bright cheeriness and the coloring is awesome. I like that you used blue in the coloring although it was not in the patterned papers. I tend to get to matchy matchy and you've shown me a new way. Thank you!
