Happy Monday! Yes, happy Monday because I only have today and tomorrow at work and then I’m off to Salt Lake City! I had a very nice weekend, got some peeps time and crafting time in so it was great! I finished most of my projects yesterday and will be working on the remainder tonight. I feel like a little kid going to Disney! Can’t wait to see everyone! 🙂
Today’s post is for this week’s Paper Players challenge. This week we have a color challenge from the lovely Nance…
A great combination of colors indeed! The base of my card is Very Vanilla Card Stock. I stamped a piece of Bermuda Bay with the Measuring Stick Stampin’ Around Builder Wheel in Bermuda Bay. On top of that is a piece of Crushed Curry that I flagged on the bottom. The chevrons were created with the new Chevron Border Punch* from some more Bermuda Bay. I used some Baked Brown Sugar for the tag base and the ampersand and thank you are from the Hello, Lovely Stamp Set and are cut out with my Paper Snips. The chevrons along the bottom are from the A Banner Christmas Stamp Set*, I love when there are non holiday elements in a holiday set! A thin strip of Bermuda Bay goes across the middle and a piece of 7/8″ Natural Ribbon Trim tied with some Linen Thread finishes off the tag. I know, I’m a little obsessed with tags but the are very trendy and a fun addition to a card. Thank you so much for stopping by to see my Paper Players challenge card from this week’s color challenge from Nance.
