Paper Players 152

DSCF6112

Happy Sunday, peeps!  Wow, can you believe today is the last day of June?!!  The year is zipping by!   Today I am the hostess at the Paper Players, and I have a tic-tac-toe challenge for everyone:

Since I already had the Soho Subway papers on my desk, I decided to use them again!  I chose the left down column for my tic-tac-toe, because I love birds and I always need get-well cards!  I used the Sketch Frenzy Friday sketch:

and I flipped the sketch so my little bird wouldn’t be looking off into outer space:

PP152-LeAnne

I love this card so much, I don’t want to part with it!  I used a Chalk Talk diecut, cutting off the bottom point, for my tag, running it through the Big Shot with the Needlepoint Border cross-stitch folder for some “stitching”, which also qualifies this for the Let’s Get Trendy Now 3 stitching challenge!  I highlighted the stitching with my white gel pen to make it stand out a bit more.  All the stamped elements except the sentiment are from Everything Eleanor, including the element behind the tag, which is a little hard to see:

The sentiment is from Delightful Dozen---what a great set!

So---what can you do with this tac-tac-toe challenge?  I hope you have fun with it---maybe create more than one project??!!!  Share them with us at the Paper Players blog where you’ll see ALL the amazing designers’ samples as well!

Life is cool!

  20. This is one Spectacular card. When I first saw it I said "Wow" out loud. I looked at it for a long time. Your attention to detail, color combo, images and the white gel pen on the stitching is awesome. Thanks for playing along with us over at SFF.

  21. The white gel pen is the perfect touch for the embossed border! You are SO creative! When I first saw your card, which I love, I was convinced you had actually sewn on the tag. Thanks for a fun challenge this week, my friend! :)
