Sweet ....

.... The wind is whistling around the house this morning, so glad that I'm tucked up in the warm and dry and playing in my craft room.  I've made a card just for fun based on these challenges:


Stamps: CAS-ual Fridays - Rad, Loving Thoughts, Casual Elegance
Inks: Stampin' Up! - Crumb Cake, Pretty in Pink, Regal Rose, Old Olive
Dies: Spellbinders - Crown Circles (S4-302) #3
Accessories: SU Design Paper and Card - Old Olive ; SU Ribbon - Old Olive; SU Marker Pens: Crumb Cake, Regal Rose, Pretty in Pink, SU Brad; White card from stash




I used the sketch from The Paper Players for the layout, the colours from The Colour Throwdown (so pretty) and used marker pens to colour the leaves on the side panel and the letters on the sentiment.  I cut a panel of white card and randomly stamped a mixture of CAS-ual Friday stamps (seemed appropriate) and layered this onto some Old Olive design paper and adhered it to the card.  I added a simple ribbon and stamped the sentiment above - I like these open sentiments, perfect for colouring!!  I made the flower by stamping the large from from Loving Thoughts three times and cutting them out, I finished off by adding a brad to the centre of the flower.  Here's a close up of the coloured sentiment.

Bye for now - wherever you are - be safe!

Deborah, I love the colors on your card, the layered flower and the brad you used for the middle of the flower perfectly echoes the shape of the petals underneath. So glad you joined the Paper Players this week
