PP488 Sketch from Laurie


Happy Sunday, peeps!  Time for another Paper Players challenge, and Laurie is our hostess with an easy, versatile sketch:


I had a gazillion ideas rolling around in my head for this, but finally decided to use the color challenge from Fab Friday:


I stamped my umbrellas from Under My Umbrella on some Pool Party and Bermuda Bay DSPs, then punched them out with the matching punch:


I mounted them on a panel of Grapefruit Grove and added some layers, then accented them with some flowers, colored with inks and a blender pen:


The TGIF challenge this week is to use diecut words, 


so I cut two sets of the words from Well Written, layered and adhered them together, for my sentiment:


When I originally started my project, I had the panels a little too large, so when I cut them down, I saved the outer frame and used it for the inside of my card, stamping a sentiment from the same set inside:


I am going to send this to a TOPS friend who is struggling with being stuck inside....hopefully it will cheer her up!   Now, what will you do with this fun sketch?  I am sure you can come up with a plethora of ideas for it....please stop by the Paper Players blog to see what the others have created, then share yours too!   Enjoy your day and be blessed!

This is just lovely LeAnne - so bright and cheery, the perfect pick me up card! I’ve been mulling over these colours for a couple of days (I’ve decided it’s a tricky combo!) and I just love how you’ve used them here, with the clever subtle mix of pattern too. Your card has definitely encouraged me to take a second look - I’m sure your sweet card will brighten your friend’s day!
