Paper Players 120

DSCF0571

Happy Sunday, everyone!  I hope you are having a blessed day!  Today, Ann has a wonderful theme challenge for us at the Paper Players:

I went waaaaay back into the archives to pull out a couple of retired SU stamps for my card today:

PP120

I stamped my basket of apples on watercolor paper and colored them with ink and an aquapainter.  Originally I had planned to use the flip side of this red Orchard Harvest DP, hence the three different-colored apples.  But when I laid it out, it was a bit too busy, so I flipped it for the less busy apple print!

And here is the inside of my card, using another oldie but goodie, paired with Perfectly Preserved!

I also used the sketch from iSpy this week for my card:

And finally, I found a new blog, Stamp N Piece, and Rhonda has a Thankful Thursday challenge, so this will fit her challenge as well!  Thanks for stopping by….we at the Paper Players would be very thankful if you came along to play with us as well.  Please share your creation at the Paper Players blog and check out what the other designers have created as well!  And remember, if you have any questions about anything on my card, send me an email!

I gave Cassidy part of a pretzel the other day and she told me it was a turtle!!  When I looked at it, it WAS shaped like a turtle!  Imaginative kid!

That tiny basket of apples is so pretty against the gold and white checks. Love these colors together!

Fabulous coloring job, LeAnne. I also love that you replicated the gingham table cloth with your DSP. I also think turning the DSP around and using the polka dots really does help highlight the focal image. Gorgeous card! Cassidy... that sure is a clever girl!
