Paper Players 286 Hello


Happy Sunday, all!  Did you remember to adjust your clocks?  We did ours on Saturday afternoon, so we had plenty of time to adjust, LOL!  Now it's time for another Paper Players challenge, with our hostess Nance offering up a striking color palette:


Hmm, what to do, what to do?  Floral, geometric, masculine???  I went with an electic style, using the sketch from CAS(E) This Sketch:


which you can see here:


I had a lot of fun making this card; I already had a little scrap of the Pretty Petals paper in Calypso Coral sitting on my desk, so I used that for the corner piece.  The next step was to figure out what to use for the other diagonal images, and I thought the lines from Chalk Lines would be good! I stamped the hearts in Bermuda Bay and the arrows in Basic Black, masking them to make the angle.  I added some doodads from Timeless Textures, some baker's twine and a few sequins (Verve) after stamping that big "hello" from the Hello set:


I took a chance and decided to punch out a little heart in the corner of the CC piece for a little added interest, and I am glad I did...I like the peek-a-boo effect!  Thanks for peeking in yourself today, and be sure to check out what the other designers did this week, and we hope you'll play along too:

Cassidy got thirty stickers on her sticker chore chart at home and Mommy treated her to a trip to Build-a-Bear!  She got a Paw Patrol dog named Chase (which is also the name of Daddy's dog!) and she had a lot of fun!  Isn't he sweet, peeking out of his little carrier?

                                    

Enjoy your day!
