Paper Players 193

DSCF2391 

Hi everyone!  It’s Sunday, and time for another Paper Players challenge!  Anne Marie has created a lovely sketch….I just love this!  What do you think?

I pulled out one of my favorite sets that is sadly retiring, Creative Elements, to create my card today:

LeAnne Pugliese WeeInklings Paper Players 193 Creative Elements Stampin Up    

I used the color palette from Color Throwdown 289:


I wasn’t too sure about them at first, but in the end, I thought the combination was pretty!  I began by wheeling the Blushing Bride background with the Shop Around jumbo wheel (also retiring) and mounting it on a Very Vanilla card.  The left panel was stamped with a couple of the elements from the set in Perfect Plum; then I stamped the flower once on a circular panel,  stamped it twice again on scraps, cutting them out and sponging them for some dimension:

I also stamped on the Wild Wasabi DP:

and added a little banner with the “hi” from Fabulous Phrases and Crochet Trim (yep, both retiring).

Don’t you wish your vehicle had a wee holder for dandelions?

  3. Everyone she picks means one less to spread seeds. Cassidy can come and fill the holder with dandelions at my house anytime. LOL
    Our dandelions aren't even up yet. We are in for a week of rain. They will be up soon.
    Very pretty card. Lots of fussy cutting there. Love it.
