PP523 Here For You

Hi stampers!  Happy Sunday!  It's Paper Players time and the lovely Ann is our hostess with a fabulous color challenge:


These are beautiful colors together, but sometimes, I just don't have papers or elements combining all three, so when I am faced with that dilemma, I choose one main element and reproduce it in all three colors!  In this case, I diecut the little embossed feather from the Nature's Thoughts dies in each of the challenge colors:

I kept the rest of the card really simple, mounting each feather on a stitched scallop panel, mounting them on a Coastal Weave embossed and stitched panel, and mounting all of that on a simple white card base.  For my neutral, other than white, I stamped a sentiment from Itty Bitty Greetings in Blackberry Bliss on a scrap of Crumb Cake and added some Linen Thread to each of the feathers' stems:

This could be used as a get well or sympathy card, or just for someone who's going through a rough patch!  

How will you use these colors?  Be sure to stop by the Paper Players blog to see what the other designers did with these colors, and share your creation with us as well!  Can't wait to see it!!

Just for fun, John left three ears of really old cow corn on our patio table....this is the only one left, we think a raccoon got the other ones.  Every morning this little squirrel comes to visit:

He just cracks us up with his quick little chewing motions!

Thanks for popping in today...enjoy it and be blessed!

Lovelyl CAS card. That was one of my fave EF's. They may be rodents but they're so darn cute. Have a blessed day.

Bonnie said...

These feathers really pop against all that white, LeAnne! Love that embossed background!

Nancy said...

I almost went the route you took with your card and reproduced one image...and now that I see yours I kinda wish I would have gone with my first thought. Love the cleanness of this design and the way each feather is framed against that awesome embossed background! Truly inspiring card!

Amanda Mertz said...

Beautiful! The feathers are so peaceful on that wonderful textured background! Have a great week!

Linda Callahan said...

That EF is one of my faves! The feathers are great with it!

Carol L said...

This is a brilliant use of the challenge colors and I love how this turned out! The embossed background and little twists of gold around the feathers is a beautiful combination! Cute squirrel outside on your table, but we stopped leaving food out for them years ago as they'd stand against our patio door begging to come in for more LOL

Great plan for using how it turned out with the feathers. I love white and the colors really pop with it. Cute squirrel!! So fun to watch the lil critters..we have a bunny that is living under our deck I love to watch too. Have a great day!

Lisa Elton said...

Wonderful layers and textures, this is so pretty! And the squirrel, come cute!

Joanne James - The Crafty Owl said...

This is a great way to combine these colours LeAnne and the textured embossed background is a triumph and really makes this card a wow. Great job!

Debbie Crowley said...

LeAnne, this is a beautiful CAS card and you used the colors for the challenge perfectly. A simple card with beautiful elements and texture.

Julia Aston said...

wonderful texture with your embossed background LeAnne - the feathers are so pretty in these colors too! What fun to have the squirrel come each day to eat some more corn!

Jaydee said...

OK.... first... the CARD. CAS PERFECTION. So much wonderful texture and yet such fabulous clean lines. Honestly, LeAnne, you move from CAS to multi-layered and everything in between with such ease. Now... your squirrel.... LOVE him. I have a video recommendation for you. I am always astonished with how incredibly smart these guys are and I saw this video from a NASA engineer and it was so worth my 20 minutes of watching.

Cindy Beach said...

The colors are highlighted beautifully against the backdrop of all that white with elegant texture. Love the basket weave! Glad to see the squirrel and his big teeth too!

Claire Broadwater said...

LeAnne, I just love this gorgeous embossed background. The feathers in the color combo are just perfect! I love the sentiment and know this card can be used for several occasions! Now, on to that little squirrel! How cute is he??? Great pictures! Have a lovely weekend, My Friend!

Anne Marie Hile said...
