Happy Sunday, peeps! I am sure the sun is shining somewhere, but it certainly is hiding its face here in SE PA! DREARY! But it's time for another Paper Players challenge where we can make sunny projects, right? Sandy is our hostess today and she has a great sketch for us:
My card today is not necessarily sunny, but I pulled out Painted Harvest, some True Gentleman DSP , and some colors that I think make an interesting palette: Tranquil Tide, Sweet Sugarplum and Crumb Cake! Here we go:
There's a lot going on here; I really had fun with this card! I stamped the flower several times with Sweet Sugarplum ink and added a center of Crumb Cake and Early Espresso. I stamped the leaves in Crumb Cake as well, then fussy-cut everything out. I took some retired Sweet Sugarplum glimmer ribbon and cut it into a narrow strip, then knotted one end and shredded the other, to make some matching shiny "thread" to tuck behind my flower:
I also used some embossing paste and a brick mask for the horizontal panel; added some linen thread and some embossing with the Seaside embossing folder. The little sentiment is from Picture Perfect Birthday, as is the inside sentiment:
I stamped the smaller Painted Harvest flower directly over the sentiment with Sahara Sand ink and I really like that effect!
I hope you'll play along with us at the Players...the DT has created some lovely samples to give you lots of inspiration! You can check them all out at the Paper Players blog!
One more photo from Cassidy's dance...can't forget Wayne! He is such an awesome stepdad!
