Monday is back again already! The weekend goes by so fast and the work week just seems to drag… wouldn’t it be great if it was the other way around! I did have a very nice weekend and got in a lot of exercise. I also got most of my todo list done so that always makes me happy! I hope you all had a nice weekend too!

Now for today’s post which is for this week’s Paper Players Challenge. This week LeAnne has given us a Clean and Simple Gold or Silver challenge…
Perfect colors for the holidays! I started with a base of Midnight Muse Card Stock. The background is a piece of Gumball Green that I stamped in Midnight Muse with the Joy stamp from the Priority Mail Host(ess) Stamp Set. I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to line up up as I went across the card. The pierced edge is made using the Essentials Paper-Piercing Pack and Paper-Piercing Tool. The stamps are also from the Priority Mail Stamp Set and are stamped in Midnight Muse. Some Versa-Mark, Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder and the penny stamp from the Lovely Little Labels Stamp Set gives it some monetary value. I used the Postage Stamp Punch to punch them out and used the 1 3/8″ Square Punch to punch out some Brushed Silver Paper to back them with. I placed a Basic Jewel Rhinestone on each of the hats and adhered them to the background with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The greeting is from the Chock Full of Cheer Stamp Set and is also stamped in Midnight Muse. I flagged the ends and put some more Brushed Silver Card Stock behind it before I adhered it to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I have had this card layout floating around in my head for a while and I’m happy that I finally got to use it. I hope that you enjoyed this week’s Paper Players Card. Don’t forget to check out the SALE and thank you for visiting me today! Have a great day!
