Paper Players 74 & PPA121

DSCF9691_thumb1

It’s Sunday, and that means Paper Players time!  This week Lesley has a sketch for us:

I had a totally different card made for this challenge, then changed my mind at the last minute.  I also realized that the last four challenges I’ve done here have all been Christmas cards!  I guess “tis the season”, right?  I still had some of that lovely glimmer paper on my desk from last week’s card, so I used a few scraps for my pretty card today:

I even had a different DP in mind when I began this card, then found this little scrap from a couple years’ ago holiday mini….and it was so pretty with my swirly dove I just had to use it!  There is some embossing going on, a couple diecut & punched snowflakes, and some pearls!!!  Lots of pearls…..

Which qualifies it for this week’s Pals Paper Arts challenge 121 as well, which is to use pearls!  I just thought they looked so elegant with the shimmer and swirls!  What do you think?  I was tempted to add glitter, but I thought it would be a bit much, LOL!

Hope you’ll play along with us this week as well!  We’ve got two more weeks and then we’ll be taking a little break for the holidays…hope to see you at the Paper Players!

Love love love how the Baja Breeze looks here! Such a pretty card - and the tag in the background is great! Won't be long and you-know-who will be wearing pearls!

This is so pretty LeAnne! I am loving that silver glimmer paper. It works so perfectly with these colors. Also love that you used the tag die for your vertical image. So clever.

LeAnne, the placement of both your snowflakes and pearls are just DEVINE! Love the cool soft color palette and your little angel pictured at the bottom sure does sparkle too! :)
