PP567 Sending Cheer

Happy Sunday, peeps!  It's time for a new Paper Players challenge with Joanne as our hostess!  She's got a stunning, but challenging (at least to me!) color palette for us this week:

These are so pretty together, but I admit I struggled a bit...I think the black threw me off!  Anyway, here we go:

I started with a Smoky Slate card base and some retired Feels Like Frost foil DSP....hopefully you can imagine the shine!  Here's a different view:

A fun diecut sentiment in Basic White and Silver Glimmer paper added to the sparkle, and I added a silver snowflake and some black gingham ribbon:

and a little snowman punched from a very old SU punch (anyone else remember this punch?):

The photos really don't do it justice but it's pretty sparkly IRL!  I used the FMS sketch for this week as well, although my big sentiment might disqualify me, LOL!:

I just realized there's no stamping on the front of my card, but I did stamp a sentiment on the inside!!!  I hope you'll hop on over to the Paper Players blog to see what the other designers came up with!  Then put on your creative thinking cap and play along with us as well!  Thanks for popping in today; enjoy it and be blessed!

I don't have to imagine the shine, I can see it front and center! This is fabulous and I love that bit of buffalo plaid ribbon! I've got a lot of really old SU punches but I don't remember that one. It's cute and I can see why you've held on to it.

This is really festive and cute. I can see the shimmer in the paper and I bet it's super sparkly in real life.
