Paper Players #25

DSCF8093

This week’s challenge at the Paper Players is a sketch by Nance:

Nance's November 21 Sketch

I did a non-Christmas card today, in a color I rarely go to:  green!

I thought this was a lovely sketch with lots of possibilities!  I use elements from Friends 24-7, Vintage Vogue and Style Beautiful (the scallops) shades of Wild Wasabi, Garden Green and Chocolate Chip.  The DP, which was embossed with the Square Lattice EF is called Woodland Walk; I did some distressing on it to give it a “shabby chic” look.  Finally, I added some Victoria Crochet Trim, a little twine loop, a Vintage brad, and a little button and pearl embellishment. 

You should definitely try out this sketch and post your creation over at the Paper Players! They’d love to have you!  Thanks for looking today!

LeAnne, this is gorgeous! I love the embellishments you added for the vintage-feel. That brad looks fabulous on the stamped image and the little pearl in the button is perfection! :)

LeAnne, this is gor-juss! I love what you've done with the sketch. Especially {heart} the stamping below the scallop border, the distressed paper and the beautiful crochet trim...stunning! {hugs}

Wow! I love the texture on the DSP! The button with the pearl is just beautiful! Of course, you just can't beat a touch of lace!

This is so pretty! I love all the layers. The little flower button with the pearl is my favorite part.

Simply gorgeous LeAnne! Love all the lace - Have you ever made a green card - lol?

Hope you have a fantastic Thanksgiving... can the baby eat mashed potatoes? For Alex's 1st T'day we gave him a jar of sweet potatoes and strained turkey - yum!

Love this card. The color is fresh and I love that you did some shabby/vintage touches to the final product.

LeAnne, fabulous card. The elements from the different sets come together so beautifully and I love the fact that you kept the top clean and simple to showcase the lower elements. Just gorgeous
Happy Thanksgiving, my friend
