And that’s a wrap on another weekend! I did have a good one, always too fast but that’s the way they go. I got a lot of things accomplished today, more than I thought that I would! Love when that happens! I got some more backgrounds for cards made and some more cards finished. Went and had dinner at Brian and Kim’s, it was taco night! Yum! I also ran out to Scrap-A-Latte to drop off some projects for the store, Brian took a ride with me and all of the ladies there loved him! LOL! I came home and finished my card for today and then headed off to bed. How was your weekend?
It’s time for another Paper Players challenge. Before I get to this week’s I want to thank Joanne for choosing my card as her pick for last week’s challenge. You can see my original post here and the Paper Players post here. Now on to this week, we have a color challenge from Ann…
A fun and different color combo! I started today’s card off with a base of Whisper White Card Stock and covered the front in a piece of Crisp Cantaloupe. A piece of Lost Lagoon is cut out with the Hexagon Hive Thinlits Die and adhered to the card with some 2-Way Glue Pen. My tag is a piece of Sahara Sand and I used the Ornate Tag Topper Punch to create it. All of the stamps are from the Butterfly Basics Photopolymer Stamp Set. The leaves are stamped onto the tag with Lost Lagoon and the greeting is heat embossed in Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder. For the butterfly I stamped him on a piece of Very Vanilla using Crisp Cantaloupe and cut him out with the Butterflies Thinlits. In the middle of the butterfly is a Naturals Designer Button with some gold thread tied in a bow. I used some Glue Dots to hold the button and the butterfly in place. A piece of 1/8″ Gold Ribbon is tied through the top and the tag is adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I really do love the colors together and that stamp set is fast becoming one of my favorites! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Paper Players color challenge. Your visits always make my day a little better so thanks for stopping by and have a as good a Monday as you can! 🙂
