Paper Players #92 – Nance’s Sketch

DSCF0331-001

Happy Sunday, everyone!  The Paper Players challenge is brought to you today by the lovely Nance, and she has a fabulous sketch that I just love!  Here it is:

I got some pretty new papers from My Mind’s Eye and I couldn’t wait to use them on my card today:

PP92-LeAnne

Another card where the paper does most of the work!  I did add some stitching to the scallops and the main panel, and diecut a pretty butterfly with the SU Butterflies die.  Some pearls, a little button & twine, and a sweet sentiment from Curly Cute and my card was done!  This also qualifies for the Our Creative Corner Challenge this week, which is butterflies! 

I can see so many possibilities with this sketch, I am sure you’ll be seeing more of it from me!  Now, let’s see what you can do with it!  Be sure to link your creation at the Paper Players blog and check out what the other designers have come up with while you’re there!  I can’t wait to see what you make!

How about some sidewalk art?

An absolutely fabulous card, LeAnne! I LOVE the butterflies and the twine! The stitching is the perfect touch. AND I can vouch for the fact that it is even prettier in person! Thank you so much, my friend!

Oh my, how I love butterflies and you have given me so many things to smile about with this card, starting with the background paper! And, I just love that border punch..it makes the sweetest little scallop edges and I adore that look. Finishing off the card with a giant butterfly seems perfectly fitting. Beautiful, as always!! :)
