Paper Players 188


Happy Sunday, everyone! Are you having a nice weekend?  Sandy is our lovely Paper Players  hostess today with this fun sketch:

I needed an extra-special thank you card this week, and this sketch fit the bill:

LeAnne Pugliese WeeInklings Paper Players 188 Summer Silhouettes Thank You Stampin Up -2

I used several images from Summer Silhouettes, as well as the Hardwood background stamp for my images.  The sentiments are from Another Thank You and Itty Bitty Banners; two of them are heat-embossed.  I cut off 1/2” from the front of this card, dry embossed the edge about 1 1/2” in,  and attached the ruffle trim to the other inside edge.  I used the colors from the Colour Me…! challenge #12.  Aren’t they gorgeous?

Here are some closeups of each section:




I really enjoyed playing with the circular elements on this card---I hope you’ll come play with us too!  Check out what the other designers created:
A little time spent outside last week….I see lots & lots of yardwork; she sees stick fun!




Enjoy your day!

  1. Gorgeous card - the circles are fun and the colours are super. I think I would prefer to play with sticks rather than do the yard work too :) Elizabeth xx

  7. I love the way you did the thank you. That looks so cool
    Oh to see yard work, well we still can't see all of our yard. LOL I use to see the work as fun. Now I don't look outside. LOL Maybe you should just have fun with the sticks too and forget the yard work.

  8. So pretty with the layers and textures.

  9. LeAnne, I love the repetition of thanks and the white embossed vellum sentiment. The ruffled ribbon on the inside is such a wonderful finishing touch. Gorgeous
