Paper Players 276


Hi everyone!  New month, new year, new guest designers, new challenge for the Paper Players!  Yippee!  Joanne has the honor of starting out 2016 with a numbers theme challenge:


Instead of a card, I decided to make a little wall hanging to commemorate Cassidy's fifth birthday party, which was fairy-themed!  I tried to use colors that complemented her turquoise and pink bathing suit, and I had some retired SU polka-dotted DSP, so I stuck with that:


I used a past Paper Pumpkin set to stamp these big flowers and although you can't tell from the photo, the centers are Dazzling Diamonds glimmer paper:


I also cut out the "yay" from the Circle Thinlit set in the glimmer paper, and added banners using the new SU Sale-a-bration set called Perfect Pairings.  I also stamped the date with the Rotary Date Stamp:



The numeral 5 was computer-generated, and I printed it directly on the DSP, then colored it in with a white gel pen!  I cut it out with a Chalk Talk die.  I added some punched butterflies and rhinestones to follow along with Cassidy's butterfly headpiece!


I mounted everything on a burlap 6x9" frame I got at Walmart and as an afterthought, added some Melon Mambo pompom decorations I had in my stash!  I hope you like it and it inspires YOU to make a number-themed creation!  Birthday, New Year's, anniversary...the possibilities are endless!  And check out the other designers' submissions as well!
