Paper Players 162

And there goes another weekend zipping by. Monday, why must you come so quickly?! I had a productive weekend so I can’t complain, got lots of projects finished and that is always good. I’m wishing this cold would go away, that would make me very happy indeed! How was your weekend? Did you do any fun last hurrah for the summer things?

Monday does mean that it’s time for this week’s Paper Players challenge. This week we have an interesting color combo from lovely LeAnne…

Paper Players #162

I had a little trouble deciding what to do at first, there are quite a few possibilities. In the end I went with a simple thank you card. For the base I used a piece of Basic Black Card Stock. The background is a piece of paper from the Brights Collection Designer Series Paper Stack. The main image and greeting are from the Gifts of Kindness Stamp Set, the flowers are stamped in Rich Razzleberry and the greeting in Basic Black. I backed it with a piece of Pool Party and a piece of Basic Black. The butterfly is from the Polka-dot Pieces Stamp Set and is also stamped in Rich Razzleberry and punched out with the Elegant Butterfly Punch. Two Subtles Designer Buttons make up the flower centers and some Basic Jewels Pearls give the butterfly a little oomph. I haven’t made a simple card like this one in a while and I love the combination of the stamp sets and DSP, they work quite well together. Thank you for stopping by to see my Paper Players card for this week’s color challenge from LeAnne. I hope you all have a good Monday! 🙂
