Paper Players #101

Good morning everyone! How was your weekend? Mine was very nice. My friend Kim was out for the weekend, the party was great on Saturday and yesterday it was beautiful outside. It rained a little here last night and looks like rain today too but all in all it was a great weekend. Today’s post is for this weeks Paper Players Challenge. This week Lesley has given us this sketch…

My card starts with a base of Certainly Celery Card Stock. In the middle is a piece of Subtles Collection Designer Series Paper and on either side I used the Large Scallop Edgelits Die with some Rose Red Card Stock. The stamped images are from the Stippled Blossoms Stamp Set, a 2 Step Stamp Set, and are stamped in Pretty In Pink and Rose Red for the flower and the leaves are stamped in Certainly Celery and Wild Wasabi. I cut both images out with my handy Paper Snips and mounted them on Stampin’ Dimensionals to a cutout from the Delicate Doilies Large Sizzlits Die. The band of Wild Wasabi Card Stock across the middle of the card is embossed with the Delicate Designs Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. Finally the greeting is from the Sweet Essentials Stamp Set, stamped in Rose Red, I punched it out with the Modern Label Punch and then punched a piece of Rose Red Card Stock with the same punch and cut it half and adhered it to the back. The color combination is nice and bright and cheery and the greeting makes the card perfect for a birthday. I hope that you enjoyed this weeks Paper Players Challenge card. Thank you very much for visiting and have a great Monday!
