Paper Players 101

Happy Sunday, peeps!  We had so much fun last week with the 100th celebration!  It was a blast seeing which challenges you chose in which to participate, and it was especially thrilling when you used one of my challenges!  Thanks so much!  This week Lesley, our queen of sketches, has a wonderful one to get your creativity going:
 Dear friends of ours celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary yesterday, so I used Lesley’s sketch as a starting point for their card:
This card was a challenge to photograph, as the silver embossing, which is so beautiful IRL, always made a reflection, so you will just have to imagine how pretty it is!  The background was embossing with a cuttlebug EF and the floral image from Creative Elements was stamped in Versamark ink and heat embossed with silver embossing powder.  The vertical panel was stamped with the swirly image from the same set; the horizontal panel was wheeled with the jumbo wheel Cornelli Lace (ret), and both, along with the sentiment from Delightful Dozen, were all heat embossed.  The Brushed Silver cardstock is a beautiful foil for that silver embossing!  A few rhinestones add just the right bling for that silver anniversary!  And here is the inside:
I hope you can find real inspiration with this sketch, and use it to create a special card or project and share it with us over at the Paper Players blog!  And be sure to check out what the other creative designers did with the sketch as well!
I am on babysitting vacation this week, so no Cassidy pictures, sorry!  I did snap these last week; she is beginning to draw with a pencil and color with crayons.  After she finished her masterpieces, she informed me, “Mail!”  So we went outside:
Got the stroller out, and she climbed in with her “mail”:
 DSCF5009  DSCF5012
And we put them in the mailbox:

Of course, I did retrieve them while she wasn’t looking!  I think she’s going to be a stamper, what do you think?

Such a pretty anniversary card with the silver embossing and bling! It sure looks to me like Cassidy is going to be a stamper for sure!

WOW!!!! I love it, love it, love it!!!!! I just got this stamp set and can't wait to play with it! I really like the embossing on the brushed silver cardstock. I also believe you have a beginner stamper on your hands!
