Paper Players 201

Even though I had off from work on Friday that weekend flew by! I guess that the fundraiser on Friday night and all of the packing and painting ate it up! LOL! I did get a lot accomplished on Saturday and Sunday. Andrew has been a huge help and I could’t have gotten half of what I did get accomplished with out him! He’ll be back tonight for more! Don’t awesome friends make the world a much better place?! I’m lucky that I have so many! That includes all of you too! 🙂

It’s Monday and that means that it’s time for this week’s Paper Players challenge. This time Nance has given us a sketch challenge…

Paper Players #201

Fun and simple. As soon as I looked at it yesterday morning I knew which DSP and stamp set I wanted to use! I need that to happen, especially this week! My card begins with a base of Mossy Meadow Card Stock. The strip down the middle is a piece of paper from the All Abloom Designer Series Paper Stack. I used the Stampin’ Trimmer with the Tiny Wave Blade to give the edges some added interest. At the top I sponged a piece of the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper with some Strawberry Slush Ink. On top of that is a piece of Strawberry Slush, I used my Paper Snips to flag both and the card stock is adhered to the glimmer paper with Stampin’ Dimensionals. My greeting is from the Hello There Host(ess) Stamp Set and is stamped in Strawberry Slush for the border and Mossy Meadow for the greeting. I used the Starburst Framelits to cut out the border and the 1 3/8″ Circle Punch to punch out the greeting. Stampin’ Dimensionals also adhere them to the card and each other. For a little extra sparkle I randomly adhered some 2013-2015 In-Color Sequins to the card. I love the way the Dazzling Diamonds looks when you change the color! So cool! And sequins just make everything better don’t you think?! Thank you very much for coming by to see my card for this week’s Paper Players sketch challenge. I love having you stop by and I hope that you all have a magnificent Monday! 🙂
