Paper Players 186

Well that weekend seemed to go a bit faster than recent ones in memory. It can’t only be because of the time change… can it?!?! I had a nice day yesterday. I ran some errands with Heather and crafted a bit too. It was a pretty quiet day, needed every so often I guess. I’m not a huge fan of them but it does do the mind good to rest a bit! How was everything for you this weekend?

It’s Monday so that means that once again it’s time for my card for this week’s Paper Players. Anne Marie has given us a neat color challenge…

Paper Players #186

I think the picture for the color challenge is pretty neat and I wanted to do something film related but thought that too obvious! My card starts off with a base of Smoky Slate Card Stock. The background is a piece of Marina Mist. I used the Music Notes Standard Wheel and heat embossed it with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder on an angle across the lower half. The stars from Crushed Curry are cut out with the Circle Card Thinlits and one that I punched out with the “Vintage” Large Star Punch are randomly placed on the background. My tag is also Smoky Slate, The top is punched with the Scallop Tag Topper Punch. The stars that are on the tag are created using Embossing Paste and a stencil that my daughter brought me home from work. Have I mentioned that Taylor works at Michaels?!?! She brings me home little goodies every once in a while and I have to use them, right?! LOL! On the top of the tag is a piece of Crushed Curry 3/4″ Chevron Ribbon tied with some White Bakers Twine. My greeting is from the Really Good Greetings Stamp Set and is stamped in Marina Mist. The tag and greeting are adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I really like the way the embossing paste stars look on the tag and the embossed music notes across the bottom. There you have my card for this week’s Paper Players color challenge from Anne Marie. I really hope that you enjoyed the card and I thank you for visiting! Have a marvelous Monday! 🙂
