Paper Players 69


Sunday, beautiful Sunday!  It’s another Paper Players day, and Nance is our lovely hostess with a sketch:


Of course, after I finish my card, I realize the sentiment is to be in the lower right hand corner…..oops!  I am always in such a hurry!  I hope Nance doesn’t mind!  I used Established Elegance last week for a masculine card, so I thought today I would use it for a feminine card.  I just love all the elements in this set—so vintage-y lovely!

PP69 LeAnne

I used different patterns of the Beau Chateau DP for my panels, the main one embossed with the Stripes embossing folder and sponged a bit with Sahara Sand ink.  I cut around the flowers on my vertical panel, stamped a few images and added a couple scalloped edges and embellishments full of vintage goodness:


I added a sentiment from Bring on the Cake for the inside:

  17. LeAnne,

    This is just absolutely brilliant and stunning. I love how you used the flowers directly from the DSP for the long banner. All the elements are just mind boggling - the sueded paper, the jewels, the clothespin the ribbon and the stamped tag. Just fabulous!

  18. LeAnne - I love the double scallop border on your vertical panel. The soft vintage look of your card is so appealing and any recipient would be so thrilled to get it. I love that little clothespin too - such a great touch!

    Hope all is well with you - I feel like I've been absent for so long but I hope to catch up on everything soon.
