Hello there! Wow! That was a long day yesterday! I went to bed at 12:00am, got up at 3:00am, went to the airport, drove into the city, napped from 5:00am to 6:30am and then ran around the city until 5:30pm. To cap it off it snowed almost the whole day! I got home around 6:20pm and me and the child went to Panera for dinner. I’m a little tired still! I hope you all had a good day yesterday.
Sunday already… that means it’s time for another Paper Players Challenge. This week we have cool sketch from the amazing Ann…
I have been wanting to use the Swallowtail Stamp from the Spring Catalog as a background and I thought this would be the perfect card for it. The base of my card is Raspberry Ripple Card Stock. I stamped the Swallowtail Stamp in Raspberry Ripple on a piece of Very Vanilla. Before I adhered the panel to the card I used some Sticky Strip to adhere the piece of Raspberry Ripple 3/8″ Stitched Satin Ribbon around the back. Some Vellum Card Stock (I have been quite into Vellum lately!) Is punched out with the Postage Stamp Punch and embossed with the Delicate Designs Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I punched some butterflies out with the Bitty Butterfly Punch from some Raspberry Ripple and adhered them to the Vellum with Stampin’ Dimensionals. A Mini Glue Dot is the strategically placed behind each one to “invisibly” hold them to the card. The greeting is from the Bloomin’ Marvelous Stamp Set and is stamped in Raspberry Ripple. Some Basic Jewels Rhinestones add a little bling and finish off the card. I hope that you enjoyed my Guest Designer card for this week’s Clean and Simple Sketch from Ann. Be sure to check out the rest of the Design Team’s cards over at the Paper Players blog. Thank you very much for stopping by, I hope that you have a lovely Sunday!
