Paper Players 275


Happy Sunday, peeps!  Today I am the hostess at the Paper Players with a traditional color challenge for you to play with:

This is also our last challenge for the year...but we'll be back in January with more challenges and new guest designers!  So here is my card for the challenge, using Cozy Christmas, the Sleigh Ride edgelits, and the Boughs and Berries embossing folder:



I started out by embossing a Cherry Cobbler card with the embossing folder; then I stamped both images in Mossy Meadow, and stamped them again in Cherry Cobbler and  did some fussy-cutting of the flowers and the bells:


Since I was using the sketch from Create with Connie and Mary, I also diecut some trees with the Sleigh Ride edgelits and added a little "to you" from Fabulous Phrases:


And here's their sketch;

CCMC385

My final embellishments were some enamel dots and a big Cherry Cobbler shabby seam binding bow!  

I hope you'll find some time in your busy schedule to play along with our challenge this week!  You can check out all the other designers' samples (and say good-bye to our current guest designers) at the Paper Players blog!

I had a serious helper assisting me with my Christmas card addressing this year!  She did very well adhering the postage stamps and address labels!  (She loved the Charlie Brown ones!)  So if you get a card in the mail from me, know that Cassidy put her own "stamp of approval" on it!
