Paper Players 52

DSCF0063

Hello, stampers!  It’s Sunday, it’s Father’s Day, and I do not have a masculine card for the Paper Players today!!  Oh well!  Today’s challenge is a wonderful CAS sketch:

Challenge 52

and since is was so sweet and simple, I incorporated a couple other challenges as well:  Just Add Ink was to “just colour it in”, and the Play Date Cafe color challenge 86 was this fun palette:

PDCC86

I pulled out the sweet little girl image from Greeting Card Kids for my CAS card:

Perhaps it’s not 100% “clean & simple” but it’s fairly simple!  I did add some doodads to my panel and a little button & bling as well!  But I had so much fun watercoloring!

She is stamped in Stazon black and then colored with reinkers and an aquapainter in shades of Tempting Turquoise, Tangerine Tango and Melon Mambo.  Of course, she had to have brown hair like my little cutie!

Love the doodads! See...you did have "dads" on the brain, even if it is not a masculine card!! :)Cassidy looks adorable and look at those little teeth! I love the matching look she is sporting!

I'm not sure which is more adorable your sweet little girl card or that sweet little granddaughter! Both are just perfect!! Love the colors you used!

Margaret said...

I look forward to your post everyday, I really love your style. I don't often take the time to comment, though! But I have so much fun seeing Cassidy grow up in a new photo everyday. I have two 8-month-old blue-eyed granddaughters, and it's fun to compare them to your very adorable granddaughter!!

Great card LeAnne. You make it look so easy to combine challenges. And every father loves his little girl(s), so in a way, this is for the fathers of all the little girls! I must try that image...she is precious just like your Cassidy!

LeAnne, it's so good to see you! This card is adorable, especially the way you've colored this little girl. And yes, I see Cassidy is wearing similar colors to our challenge - I think you get double points for that. ;) THanks for playing with us at The Play Date Cafe!
