Paper Players Sketch Challenge 31


You have to promise NOT to laugh too hard at this silly card!!  Today’s Paper Players sketch challenge comes from Ann, and it is a lovely sketch!  However, I promised that I would veer away from my vintage kick, and I did---I wanted to use my new SAB set Punch Bunch, my new (to me) Owl Punch, AND I wanted to keep up with my own personal Christmas card challenge!  But first, here’s Ann’s sketch:

Ann's Sketch 31

And here’s my creation:

PP Sketch #31

Oh my, there is a LOT going on here!  How do you like my little Santa owl?


I made good use of the Real Red Glimmer paper featured in the mini catalog:  his “coat”, hat and the border are all punched from it.  I also glittered up his hat brim and the snowflake from Northern Frost (still available!) with some DD glitter, too, and added a Glimmer brad!

The other little circle embellishment is made with three little trees diecut from the Merry Details die, and they’re all glittered up too!


So there you have it---a bright cheery Christmas card!  What will you do with this sketch?  Post your creation over at the Paper Players blog so we can all look at it---have fun!
