I’m not going to make my usual comment about the weekend being over. I had a nice weekend, got some things done and saw a lot of peeps. Yesterday I finally got some cleaning done and finished up some projects. I also went to dinner at Ruby Tuesday’s with my friend Maureen. Not a bad day at all. Now I will begin my mental countdown to Friday! LOL! Oh come on, you know that those of you that work are doing the very same thing! 😛
If it’s Monday then it’s time for the Paper Players! This week we have a fun sketch from my friend Sandy…
I did ponder what I was going to do for a little bit, actually while I was vacuuming! I finally settled on this. My card base is a piece of Pistachio Pudding Card Stock. I stamped the parkay pattern from the Truly Grateful Stamp Set Early Espresso on Soft Suede. The butterflies are from the Papillon Potpourri Stamp Set and are heat embossed in Calypso Coral on Vellum. I punched them out with the Bitty Butterfly Punch. Before I adhered them to the card I stamped my greeting from the A Dozen Thoughts Stamp Set in Early Espresso using my Stamp-a-ma-jig. The butterflies are then adhered to the wood panel with Glue Dots. For a little sparkle I “sprinkled” a few Pistachio Pudding sequins from the 2013-2014 In-Colors Sequin Assortment along the bottom right. I love the bold pop of the butterflies against the nice dark wood panel and I think that Pistachio helps balance everything out. There you have my card for this week’s Paper Players sketch challenge from Sandy. I hope that you like the card. Thank you for coming by to see me and I wish that you all have a marvelous Monday! 🙂
