Paper Players 84

Hi everyone!  It's Sunday, and that means a Paper Players challenge for you!  Today is my turn to hostess, and I have a sketch for you!  Don't panic---it doesn't have to be complicated with lots of layers--you can make it as simple or complex as you like!  Just make sure there are three elements going down the center--you know I like "threes"---and a sentiment across the bottom!  Here's the sketch to get you started:


And here is my take on it:


I put the SAB set Elementary Elegance to work here, pairing it with some Beau Chateau designer paper, stitched on a Very Vanilla panel and mounted on a Marina Mist card.  Each of my three images were overstamped with a portion of the flourished frame, as was the sentiment embellishment:


I even added  a little cut-out crown to top the embellishment!  I hope that you will play along with us this week and share your creation with us over at the Paper Players blog!  While you're there, be sure to check out what the other designers created with the sketch!  Thanks for visiting today!

LOL My first thought was it must be LeAnne's sketch since it has her infamous 3 elements. :) I hope I can find a bit of time to play this week. It's a great sketch and I love your card with is. Those blues are great!

Absolutely gorgeous, LeAnne! Your sketch is fabulous! I love the texture on your center panel. The colors are so soft and serene!

You know I like "3's", too! There is just something about a trio of crafty goodness that I just can not resist. That's why your sketch is fabulous! (It is in the book of "favorites", too...so I can use it over and over again) Your card is beautiful, as always. I really like the soft colors and the stitched border is a great touch. Thanks for being our hostess with the "mostest" this week, my friend! Hugs! :)

I like this sketch. I'm going to try to play this week. I love your card - the softness of the blues and the embossing. Your stitching looks wonderful. Thanks for the great sketch. I haven't visited your gallery for a while and I know I've missed a lot of beautiful creations. I'll slowly try to catch up on some of them.
I'm Denise's friend and saw a couple of beauties you sent to her when I was there the other day. :-)

Beautiful card LeAnne! I love all the background details with the embossing and overstamping that you do so well. The stitching is perfect and I adore your little crown embellishment. Great sketch!

Vicky Hayes said...

I can't get over how 'clean' and neat everything looks on your gorgeous layered card LeAnne! The colours are lovely too.

Christy Q said...

What a great challenge, LeAnne! And your card is just stunning - crisp white and blues with the images in the center. I love this card! Hope all is well!
