Paper Players #59

DSCF6011

Happy Sunday everyone!  Time for another Paper Players challenge—this time Anne Marie is our hostess and she has chosen a color challenge:

How convenient for me that we celebrated Cassidy’s first birthday yesterday---this color challenge gave me the inspiration to alter a little acrylic picture frame I had gathering dust sitting on my supply shelf!  Here’s what it looked like:

I printed out a little recent photo of Cassidy, pulled out some assorted papers and went to work:

I ran a piece of chipboard through my Big Shot with the Scallop Square Bigz Die….I was a bit nervous, but it cut it beautifully!  I covered it with some Patterns DP in Pretty in Pink; I put a piece of Regal Rose behind the frame itself, and stamped some butterflies in Rose Red, cut them out and tucked some Paper Daisies in around them.  The theme of her party was butterflies, so I knew Dana would like these!

Of course, we had to have a little bling, so I covered a chipboard “1” from the On Board Merry Medley with some Cosmo Pink glitter (still on a learning curve with chipboard!!!), added a button & bow:

I added a little “prop” on the back so that this can sit on Cassidy’s dresser!  Now I hope you will find some inspiration from these yummy, sweet confectionary colors!  Show us your creation over at the Paper Players blog and you might just be chosen as a Headliner or Cut Above!!  While you’re there, peek at the what the other designers have created!  Thanks for visiting today!
