PP625 Love You More Than Cookies

Happy Sunday, everyone!  Our Paper Players challenge today features the amazing Joanne with an amazing sketch!  Here we go:


This year I have been trying to use more of the products I have from the regular catalog rather than focus on the mini catalog, so I went through what I had and realized the Nothing Better Than set, with its matching dies, would be perfect for a Valentine's card!  I did combine it with some newer products, so I gave some love to all!  So here we go:

In retrospect, I wish I had used a different background DSP for my card, but I had already started adhering stuff before I changed my mind!! It's from the Day at the Farm pack, which is available as a free SAB item!  Anyway, it's all pretty simple!  For the upper image, I diecut some hearts from Country Floral Lane DSP, and added a red glimmer heart as well.  It was punched from the back of the glimmer paper so that the heart would be facing in the opposite direction.  I added a little diecut arrow and a few sequins for sparkle:

The lower image was three chocolate chip cookies, along with some sequins too, and I stamped the little "sparkle" stamp from the stamp set randomly on the DSP as well.  The center diecut sentiments were cut from Real Red cardstock, and the "cookies" was stamped with Soft Suede ink.

Finally, on the inside, a sentiment and heart from the Country Bouquet set finished it off.

I think Cassidy might like this card, what do you think?  

I hope you'll find some inspiration from Joanne's sketch and play along with us this week!  The DT has come up with some amazing samples for additional inspiration!  Check them out at the Paper Players blog and play along with us!  You may be our Headliner next week!  Thanks for popping in today--enjoy it and be blessed!

We love because He first loved us.  1 John 4:19

This is one of my favourite sets LeAnne and I think you are so right - we don't use our AC stuff enough when a mini comes along and this set is perfect for a Valentine's card. I like the background, and with hearts and cookies - I'm sure Cassidy will love it!

Fran Wing said...

Hello, LeAnne. If Cassidy doesn't like this card, will you send it to me? I love those chocolate chip cookies! Well, the rest of the card is alright too - more than 'alright'!
Xoxo, Fran

Tow things I will never disagree with are cookies and sparkle! This is so stinking cute, LeAnne! I especially love that distressed background. So fun!
