Paper Players CAS Sketch 39

DSCF0078

Happy Sunday to everyone!  It’s another Paper Players Challenge, and this week Jaydee has given us a Clean & Simple sketch:

March CH 39 CAS-001

and here is my card:

DSCF0075

I love CAS, so I couldn’t wait to start playing!  I chose a sheet of designer paper from the Botanical Gazette line; one side became my focal image, the flip side became my background.  I did a little spritzing, distressing and shading on the focal image, and I stamped the Woodgrain BG stamp on my background image.  My CTD teammate, Kristin, made a very cute little bird’s nest shown on this card, and that gave me the idea to make one for my card too!  Thanks, Kristin!  Mine is a little bit different, as I used hemp twine, then colored some pearls with a Copic marker to make my “eggs”.  Since my card is Not Quite Navy, I added another piece of the DP on the inside, stamping some of the Nature’s Walk images as well as a sentiment from Bring on the Cake:

I hope you’ll be inspired to make a clean & simple card using this lovely layout.  Check out the Paper Player’s blog for all the designers’ creations, and show us yours too!

Oh my gracious! This is beyond beautiful. I loooooove that little nest (I will SO be trying that), and the way you've spritzed and distressed the DP image. Eeeek, I haven't bought SU! for a long time, but they are calling my name with this new catty. You are definitely the queen of enabling, tee hee!
