Since the Paper Players extended their challenge, I had a wee bit of time today to play in a couple other challenges. Although I am not really feeling the love for this card, it is one I will add to my birthday stash…..it is bright & colorful, I will say that. I began with the Sweet Sunday sketch #117:

I was also going to submit this for a new challenge, CAS-ual Fridays, but it wasn’t really CAS!!! So I’ll try that again later this week! I used two PTI sets along with some October Afternoon and Cosmo Cricket papers.

My first few petals bled until I heat-set the ink and I had no more problems! I used some baker’s twine from Tammy, my new Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer punch and some Brights buttons along with some rickrack from my sewing stash!
I babysat today, which is not something I usually do on Sundays. They called for heavy downpours—they got it wrong. It was beautiful! Dana tried to accessorize Cassidy in a “Hawaiian” theme:
It lasted about two seconds! LOL! Thanks so much for visiting today!
