Paper Players 99 & FMS38

 DSCF3200

It’s Sunday, and another Paper Players Challenge is upon us!  Today, Lesley has a fab & funky color challenge—woo, this one really threw me for a loop!

I went bold and basic today, since these are really strong colors together!  I used my new Betsy’s Blossoms and paired it with Friendly Phrases to make some cards for my top four sellers in my downline:

PP99-LeAnne

It’s a bit dificult to see, but I stamped the sentiment on the Basic Gray DP in Stazon; I wish I had heat embossed it, oh well!!!  I added some dry embossing and new stitched ribbon, along with a few strategically-placed pearls!

I also used the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches for this week as well:

I sure hope you’ll fly over to the Paper Players blog and see what the other designers have created with this bold color palette!  And we hope you’ll share your creations as well!

Cassidy wanted to go “wimmin” and decided to take matters into her own hands, going into the storage shed and hauling out her blow-up pool from last year!  All on her own!

Grampy convinced her that playing with her water table would be just as fun:

And between it and the sandbox, she had a blast!!!

  4. Another fabulous card LeAnne. Love it!

    Cassidy is getting so big, it is almost like I know her since I watched her grow before my eyes here on your blog. I would of loved to have gone wimmin' with her in the pool as it is quite hot here too.

  7. I don't know who this Betsy is but she really inspired a fun stamp set! Love this LeAnne! The colors really pop and I really like how you used the "negative" side of the embossing. Look at little miss and her determination with that pool! Ha! She's so dang cute! :)

  9. Fabulous job with these colors LeAnne. Love how the rounded corner mimics the bird's belly and the bitty flower she's carrying is adorable! As is your sweet little water baby!!

  10. Isn't that amazing she could remember that from last year? I remember my Great Uncle called me come a nd play with a littler bird cage water wheel in the big sink they had. I thought it was the neatest thing. A little plastic thing that went a round with water.
    Beautiful card. Colors I would never have thought to put together but it works great on your card.

  13. Cute card- I wouldn't have thought I'd like something with that color combo but you did a wonderful job with it. As for Cassidy... old enough to know what she wants and to go and get it... and young enough to be easily distracted. ;) ? for you- heading to CKC Lancaster this year? Would love to meet you in person if you are.

  16. This is so bright and pretty, LeAnne! We were just talking about getting a water table for Jack's 1st birthday. I wonder if he's too short?!! He does like to play in the water.
