Happy Sunday, peeps! I am the hostess over at the Paper Players today, and I have a sketch for you:
I wanted to play with some of the pretty papers from the upcoming Garden Lane collection, so I paired it (again) with Free as a Bird; here we go:
After finishing my card, I think I might just have too many greens going on here, LOL! I wanted to incorporate all the hues from the DSP, but it might just be too much....better luck next time! Anyway, I stamped my bird and leaves in Mint Macaron and Garden Green, then used MM, Pear Pizzazz and Garden Green to lightly color them with an aquapainter; they were all fussy-cut and the bird was mounted on circular diecuts from Stitched Labels and Layering Circles dies:
The sentiment was diecut with the new Stitched Nested Labels dies:
And I embellished the left side with some dies from the Arts and Crafts set; I just love that ruffle, don't you?
After adding leaves to the front of the card, I had some leftovers, so I added them to the inside as well:
I hope you'll play along with our sketch this week...be sure to share it with us at the Players blog! You can check out what all the DT did with it while you're there! Thanks for popping by today!
Thank you, also, to all the kind bloggers who thanked John for his service and for participating in our little Memorial Day parade yesterday. The weather was overcast and a bit chilly, but at least no one fainted from the heat (which has been known to happen)!! I ran a little late, so I didn't get a chance to take a photo of us together. Anyway, here are a few:
It's always hard to get a good one while they're marching!!
The Little League team was all decked out in red, white and blue:
The West Grove and Avondale Fire Companies keep their trucks sparkling!!
Although I grew up on Fords, you can't help but love a beautiful Corvette like this!
