Paper Players CAS Challenge 43


Happy Palm Sunday!  I am spending today with family, so this will be short & sweet, which is perfect for Jaydee’s Clean and Simple sketch:

Jaydee's CAS April Sketch 4-17-11

and here’s my creation:


I chose the lovely Blueberry Crisp for my background focal print, and the sentiment from the hostess set Afterthoughts.  I never even noticed that sweet little flower in the set, so I used it to decorate my horizontal panel.  A layer of scallops (the flip side of my paper) decorates the bottom.  I added a birthday sentiment from Bring on the Cake on the inside, so I’ve got a bright birthday card for my stash.  I hope you can find some time to play along with this quick easy sketch.  Show us your stuff over at the Paper Players blog and you may become a Cut Above or even a Headliner!!

  • Stamps:  Sanded, Afterthoughts
  • Paper:  VV, Pacific Point, Blueberry Crisp
  • Ink:  Pacific Point
  • Acc:  Scallop Border Punch, Wide Oval Punch, Dimensionals


  1. How adorable!! Love all the blue and love the scallops! :)

  2. I love that paper! It is so pretty.

  3. This paper is the best and I love the scallops. The sentiment is PERFECT!! Great minds and all that! Enjoy your day!

  4. I just looked in the catalog because I never noticed that little flower either. How funny! Love the triple scallops and all of the beautiful blues! Very pretty! :)

  5. Love the card and the photo of Little Miss Blueberry Crisp :)

  6. Lovely use of the DSP, LeAnne--makes me think of blue willow china! Love the triple scallops and the sweet little flower!

  7. Love the blues, LeAnne! The scallops are the perfect design element! Very pretty!

  8. That paper is fabulous and I love how you've layered the scallops. So pretty!

  9. This is such a pretty card. In fact I have enjoyed a lot of your cards. We too keep a grandchild, a 3 yr. old boy. We gave up vacations and holidays, but haven't regretted it a bit. Well, sometimes on a fussy day, but the thought is fleeting. Soon he will have a baby brother and we will be spending our days with him too. We are blessed to be a part of their lives!
