PP575 Just a Little Note

Hello, peeps!  Happy Sunday!  It's time for a new Paper Players challenge, with Jaydee as our hostess!  She has a wonderful sketch for us...this sketch is probably my all-time favorite one to use, it's a real "go-to" when I want to make a card in a hurry, LOL!  Here's the sketch:

I wanted to revisit some of the pretty papers that are in the main SU catalog...they sort of get short shrift when the minis come rolling around, and I thought the Pansy Petals DSP would be perfect for a fun, springy creation:

The DSP did most of the work!  I used a Pale Papaya plaid for the bottom section and did some more stencilling for the polka-dotted top.  I fussy-cut two pansies to match and added some diecut leaves:

The "seamline" looked a little plain, so I added a scalloped border, then sponged a wee skinny strip of Dazzling Diamonds glimmer paper with some Pale Papaya ink and adhered it on top for a bit of snazz!  Finally, some In Color jewels were popped into the center of the flowers, and a sweet little sentiment from Special Moments was stamped directly on the DSP in Calypso Coral ink!  It all resides on a Pale Papaya card.

I hope you'll play along with the Players and use this versatile sketch to make a special card for a special someone!  Share it with us at the Players' blog and check out what the DT made a swell!  Thanks for popping in today!

Cassidy had a sleepover this weekend and we watched Encanto...unusual but cute!  She was quite absorbed (and knew the Bruno song by heart!):

Enjoy your day and be blessed!

I love sketches like this to use DSP. Your card is very pretty. So, did Cassidy bleach a strand of hair?

I watched it last week. And last night I had an hour long chat with my 11 year old niece and she proceeded to sing the Bruno song to me. I still prefer Let it Go from Frozen. I also love this layout and the colors you have chosen for your card. Have a blessed Sunday.

Your darling card is not short on sweetness, LeAnne. Love the pansies and that little bit of glam you've added with the sparkly paper and jewels.
We liked the movie, too!

Wendy said...

Such a pretty card, LeAnne! I love the Pansy suite! The colors of your card are so pretty and I love the flowers! Miss Cassidy is growing up so fast! Hope your enjoying a relaxing weekend and your staying warm!

Ann Schach said...

Such a sweet card, LeAnne! I love the mix of patterns. The fussy cut pansies are the perfect little accent. Have a wonderful week!

This is a lovely way to showcase the peach and orange tones of the papers in this suite LeAnne and I love the fussy cut pansies and leaf and border details. So pretty! I have yet to watch Encanto - it is supposed to be the new 'Frozen'! I watched 'King Richard' this afternoon, about the Williams sisters - I would highly recommend!

Claire Broadwater said...

I just love these pansies and all the mix of patterns. Such a sweet card and it makes me long for warmer days. Such pretty colors! Cassidy is so grown up and beautiful!

Jennie Maier said...

Love those polka dots with the gingham! And the little scalloped border is too cute! Lovely card!!

Linda Callahan said...

Sweet card - and I loved the new Disney movie!

Lisa Elton said...

What a sweet card! Love the gingham and the pansies. It makes me want summer to get here soon. I've had enough of this snow!

Love that designer paper...perfect for this sketch! The pansies are so fresh and spring like.

Jaydee said...

LeAnne, this is like a ray of sunshine on a grey, snowy day! I love the mix of DSP and the gorgeous peach color. The cluster of pansies is fabulous. Thanks for rocking my challenge this week

Cindy Beach said...

Pretty papers plus a great focal point make a fabulous card! Love this one, LeAnne. The tucked in foliage and jeweled flowers are so pretty. I really like that sentiment.

Your card looks like spring sunshine in paper form :) I always buy a ton of DSP and then only use a tiny fraction of it...but it's great to have a huge collection for my scrapbook pages. I like the little pop of Calypso Coral with all that Pale Papaya.
