Paper Players 218


Happy Sunday, peeps!  Time for another Paper Players challenge; Sandy is our hostess today and she has a clean and simple, gold or silver challenge!

I chose to pair my silver with Cherry Cobbler, I think it is a beautiful combination!  I just got this Blooming Borders set, after hankering it since the catalog came out;  I stamped it in Cherry Cobbler, then colored in some of the berries with a silver Zig Painty pen:

And although it’s a wee bit of a challenge to see, I heat embossed a sentiment from Good Greetings on Brushed Silver cardstock, then punched it out with an oval punch, and accented it with narrow silver ribbon:


For a final touch of silver, I heat embossed a label from Four Frames, punched it out and stamped the Christmas sentiment from Petite Pairs in Encore Silver ink:


I don’t think my photos do this card justice…it’s really pretty IRL!  Metallics are so hard to photograph!  I hope you’ll play along with us this week, and remember, it’s a CAS challenge!  Check out what the other designers did as well:
A little leaf-pile jumping!




Enjoy your day!
