Paper Players Challenge #3


Happy Sunday!  Lesley has posted our third challenge over at Always Playing with Paper, and this week it’s a Sketch Challenge!  I can see lots of possibilities with this one!  I love it!   Here’s it is:

Sketch 1 new

I wanted to use some new products, so I made a card using the new Daffodil Delight cardstock, and inked up the little turtle from the Level 2 Hostess set, Long Fellows, for this fun cheery card:

APP Sketch Challenge #1-1

I don’t know….do you think he looks weird holding the balloons between his teeth???  He is still smiling!  I used some papers from Tall Tales DP; I thought the So Saffron blended nicely with the Daffodil paper!  I colored Mr. Turtle with some inks and my aquapainter, along with the balloons from Sock Monkey and tied them all up with some embroidery floss.  Both sentiments are from the Long Fellows set; the little flower is from Holiday Blitz.  Since the DP is retiring, no sense in hoarding it, right?  So I lined the inside of the card with it too:


and added a belated birthday sentiment from On Your Birthday. 

So hop on over to Lesley’s blog to see what the other Paper Players  Corie, Jaydee, Lesley and our guest designer, Jeannie have come up with!!  Play along with us—you’ll have fun!

  4. OMG Girl! You are on a ROLL lately! This is cuter than cute and so bright and cheery too! I love the way you have him holding the all ties together! :) Happy Sunday! Smiles, Pam :)

  5. totally cute. I neglect my yellows, must follow your example. I laughed at the question about the balloos in the teeth making him look weird. It's the looooooooong snakelike body that makes him look weird, but in a most endearing way.

  6. Beautiful card, LeAnne! So cheery!Have a wonderful Father's Day with your family!

  7. SO adorable LeAnne!! That little turtle is cute, I really like that set!!

  9. Wow, this card is fabulous! Love your use of the new stuff! I'm not usually a yellow kind of gal but I have to say I'm really lovin' the Daffodil Delight! Nicely done :D


  10. VERY cute, LeAnne and FABULOUS coloring, especially on the balloons!
