Paper Players 76

DSCF9962

Happy Sunday to everyone!  Ann is our hostess for this week’s Paper Players challenge, and she has a regal combination for us:

Once again, it’s a clean and simple challenge, which I didn’t notice, but thankfully, I did a fairly clean and simple card:

PP76-LeAnne-1

I used the Lovely Letters set with the flourish from Essential Elements, stamped in gold Encore ink.  I embossed my Brushed Gold scalloped mat with a CB folder and burnished the embossing with some Soft Suede ink, then adhered it to another Brushed Gold mat.  I added a glimmer brad, some quilted ribbon in Cherry Cobbler and a few well-placed gold dots with a gold Painty pen:

On the inside, I added a sentiment from Come to Bethlehem:

I hope you’ll be able to play with us using these lovely colors!  You can stop by the Paper Player’s blog to see what the other designers created as well, and share YOUR creation with all of us!  This is the Paper Players’ last challenge of the year and we hope you have a blessed Christmas holiday, and be sure to come back in 2012 for some brand-new challenges!

Fabulous use of the colours Leanne. Love the letters and sponged EF panel.

ooooooooooh, I LOVE the dry embossing on the gold piece, LeAnne! and of course the sentiment is PERFECT, but I confess, I'm a little biased about "Noel" ;) Hope you are having a great weekend! hugs! :)

I am so glad you showed us all the little details because up close they are stunning1 I love the ink on the brushed gold cardstock--it really makes the embossing pop. The little pops of gold on the letters is the perfect touch and I REALLY love the background and inside stamping with the flourish...stunning!

Lesley said...

Love the combo of stamps you used LeAnne, the letters work so well with the flourish you used! What a beautiful card!

Anne Marie Hile said...

This card is just beautiful LeAnne. I love those letters, they're so nostalgic! Gorgeous inside and out.

LeAnne, This is such a great card both inside and out. I love how you took the background into the interior of the card. The Lovely Letters are just perfect for the Noel sentiment. Just beautiful!
