Paper Players 196

Well, I had a pretty relaxing Sunday. I got up this morning and started working on my projects that i needed to get finished. I had a lot to do today so an early start was good. I stopped for a bit to do my laundry and the continued before taking a break in the afternoon to watch two movies. I really do enjoy my TV time, and to think that I gave it up all together for almost three years! It’s a nice way for my brain to have some quiet time. I have a lot going on at the moment and I really need it! How was your weekend? Good I hope!

It’s Monday and that means that it’s time once again for this week’s Paper Players challenge. This week Ann has given us a CAS floral theme…

Paper Players #196

I got the idea for the layout of this card from Pinterest. I also got to use one of my favorite punches! My card base is a piece of Sahara Sand Card Stock. On the left side is a piece of Moonlight Designer Series Paper*. I stamped my image from the Happy Watercolor Stamp Set in Memento Tuxedo Black*. The stem of the flower is colored in with my Mossy Meadow* Stampin’ Write Marker. For the flowers I used my Blender Pen and Blackberry Bliss*. I also stamped the image from the Best of Greetings Stamp Set in the same color. Down the left side I used the Spiral Border Punch*, which will be back from retirement in the new catalog! Woo hoo! Some Stampin’ Dimensionals hold the panel to the card. There you have my card for this week’s CAS floral challenge from Ann for the Paper Players. I’m loving the bLackberry Bliss, does’t it make your mouth water a little when you say it?! Thank you for paying me a visit, I hope you enjoyed the card and have yourselves a great Monday! 🙂
