PPA #186 and welcome to 3 New Members

This year already has been so good to me - I have 3 more new members, I just won the TAWS challenge #44 with THIS card and best of all I made the Stamplorations DT - I guess I don't have to keep this a secret, since it was posted on the blog. So lets greet the new members in order of joining:


jellybeanerz - so sorry, could not find a blog, but I will add it, if you let me know
Shery the owner of those gorgeous Stamplorations stamps (I linked the shop, so you can check them out yourself). 
Sandi Munro, who in addition to her own blog is on the DT for Addicted to Stamps and More and Inkspirational

I am in awe of all this talent that is joining my blog - I hope you will like what I'll make the future. And here is my welcome picture for you:


I just love this - it is by El Anatsui, who had an exhibit at the Brooklyn Museum last March. He works with recycled materials - metal bottle caps in fact and creates those amazing pieces that look like fabric from the distance. I choose this ppicture, because it also fits the challenge I am playing with.

Its my first time to play in the Pals Paper Art challenge ever. I discovered that blog a while ago, but was too busy with other stuff. 

PPA186 Jan 2

So I pulled out my not yet used PTI set Sketched shapes (except the sentiment, which I have used a couple of times) to make this card.



I also added some of those matte Neat&Tangled gold sequins, which are so elegant. 



Added some splatters and popped up the card with foam strips.

I am also linking this card with Bizzy Becs challenge - Anything Goes
 Oozak - Blue tones
Simon Says  - use something new
Creative Friday - Alles Neu/something new

And tomorrow I have some more news for you...........
