Paper Players Inspiration Challenge

DSCF8138

Welcome back to the second Paper Players challenge!  This week Lesley has chosen a beautiful photo as our color inspiration:

Colour1

Aren’t those flowers gorgeous?  I found that I don’t have many floral stamps!  I guess I keep thinking that I do, so I don’t buy any more!  Have to remedy that!!  Anyway, I pulled out Fresh Cuts, a stamp that hadn’t seen the light of day for quite a while and used the latest Mojo Monday sketch:

I realized about halfway through stamping that my panel was a bit large for the sketch, but I was not about to redo it!  So  I made the card a bit larger to fit a larger envelope I had, and to allow the sketch to fit. The main panel is stamped in Bashful Blue craft ink:DSCF8137 and some of the flowers were watercolored in.  I added accents in Old Olive and Pacific Point, as are the background panels of the card itself.  The ribbon loops are layered Bashful Blue taffeta over wide white organdy.  The sentiment is from a SAB set, Whimsical Words; I added a simple birthday sentiment from On Your Birthday on the inside:

Wonderful card. I like how you colored your ribbon, set your flowers up on dimensional's, and used a double row of scallop edging at the bottom of the card. Aren't these colors just to die for! I am just loving what everyone is making with them. Great job.

Cyber hugs, Trish in Wisconsin
