Paper Players 165


Happy Sunday, peeps!  Ann is our hostess today for the Paper Players, and it’s a fun one---a tic tac toe!  Here is the layout:

My original plan was to use the center column – thank you, embossing and pearls – but then I realized this also completes the center row across – patterned paper, embossing and any shade of blue!  So here we go:

LeAnne Pugliese WeeInklings Paper Players 165 Another Thank You

It wasn’t until I actually photographed my card that I realized that the Quatrefancy Specialty paper is actually Pool Party, NOT Soft Sky!  But at that point, I certainly wasn’t going to remake it, so my card actually has three shades of blue:  Pool Party, Soft Sky and Island Indigo!  I used the Apothecary Accents die and coordinating piercing mat for the DP; Fancy Fan and Adorning Accents for my embossing; and the sentiments are from Another Thank You (new polymer set) and A Fitting Occasion.  The tag is from Chalk Talk dies:


Not too sure about this card….I think I rely on sketch challenges so much that I second-guess myself when it comes to making my own layouts!  But it’s done and I needed it, so it’s actually in the mail already!  I hope you’ll play along with this challenge….so many possibilities for this one!  Have fun with it!  And check out the other designers’ projects as well:
Cassidy was playing with her chalk on the sidewalk a few days ago and when she was finished, she looked like a chimney-sweep:


She needed a scrub-down afterwards!!!  Enjoy your day!

This card is perfect, LeAnne! Never second-guess yourself when creating your own layouts, look at how awesome this one turned out to be. And I love the 3 shades of blue, they remind me of the beaches from my beautiful island. I was feeling kind of blue, but when I saw your color combo and the beautiful card it put a smile on my face. Great job!

Cassidy has the prettiest eyes. She looks like she has eyeliner on and mascara and it is all natural. So pretty even with a chimney-sweep face. LOL So cute!
And this card.Wow I love the piercing. It those added touches you are so good at.

I love this card LeAnne. Blues and white....always a favourite with me. I love the efs you've used and the addition of the pearls.
