PP597 Sketch from Joanne

Happy Sunday, everyone!  It's time for a new Paper Players challenge with Joanne as our hostess!  She has a fun sketch for us!  Don't you just love sketches?  I know I do! Here we go:

As I said a few posts ago, I just got this SAB Designer Series Paper called Rings of Love.  Check out this lovely pattern:

I did NOT want to cover up any of that prettiness, so for my horizontal panel, I created a "window" from Sweet Sorbet cardstock, using a Stitched Rectangle to cut out the inside twice .  Behind it, I added some vellum, then stamped a sentiment from Celebrate Sunflowers and fussy-cut it out:

I also fussy-cut a few little designs from the DSP to tuck around the sentiment, along with some matte dots (which are a bit hard to see!).  I had an extra cut-out left over, so I adhered that to the inside:

I am having so much fun with these papers!  I need a couple of thank you cards for some customers, so I think I'll make another one!  And I hope you'll make a card with our sketch too!  Check out what the DT created over at the Paper Players blog, then share yours with us too!

After a cloudy start, we managed to get a pretty nice afternoon for our time at the pool on Friday!  Here's Cassidy with her friend Trevor (hard to get a good shot--they never stop swimming!):

And each one of them, hurtling down the slide:

The water was "refreshing", to say the least!  Thanks for popping in today!  Enjoy it and be blessed!  

"Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in you.  Show me the way I should go, for to you I entrust my life." Psalm 143:8

Gorgeous card!

Oh what a great card, LeAnne! I love your thought behind not covering up that pretty DSP and making a see thru window! That is a brilliant idea and perfect for the challenge today! I SO love it! Glad to see you & Miss Cassidy have been enjoying the pool! This weekend was perfect for the pool and it's days like this I really miss my old pool. Have a great day & stay cool!

LeAnne... absolutely fabulous! Love the framed vellum...such a great idea. DSP is gorgeous! I learned that trick of fussy cutting the DSP from Joanne and it has really changed my cardmaking. Great card! I have no doubt you and the family will have a fun filled 4th! Take care.

That DSP is my favorite from the new mini catalog/SAB catalog, I can't wait to get it in my hot little hands :) Love how you used the vellum so you can see as much of the paper as possible!

You have been making such fabulous cards with this paper LeAnne - I'm so glad I stocked up! I love the vellum window, perfect for allowing a clean sentiment and decorative detail without covering anything up. Gorgeous!

LeAnne, this is fabulous! I LOVE that DSP and the vellum is an amazing addition to the sketch design, I love how you cut the butterfly and mushrooms out for embellishments! Have a great holiday weekend!

This card is at the top of my list of my favorites, LeAnne! I really love the DSP - it's cute and trendy at the same time! Your vellum window is a great idea and fits in so well with the dreamy look. Love it!

SO pretty, Leanne! Love how the colors just poo off the clean background. The soft vellum is a beautiful detail!
