And there goes Saturday, fast as always! I hope that you had a fun day yesterday, I did. I crafted in the morning and went out and did a little shopping. I met my friend Maureen for lunch, we had Panera, definitely one of my favorites. I love their Chopped Chicken Cobb with Avocado Salad and their Acia Berry Iced Tea. I got my friend Kim from the airport after her week in paradise as she called it! All in all a very good day!
Since today is Sunday that means it’s time for another Paper Players Challenge. First, congratulations to Natalie for being my choice for Cut Above on last week’s challenge! This week the amazing Anne Marie has given us this clever sketch…
I’m liking it a lot! I knew what I was going to use, it just took a little selective weeding to get my card just right. The base of my card is Riding Hood Red Card Stock. I used one of the stamps from the Paper Pumpkin Kit to stamp the random ink drops for the background in Basic Gray. The tag in the middle, stamp and ruler are all from the Fan Fair Designer Series Paper Pack. There are some really great images on the sheets that you can cut out or punch out. The ruler along the right side is backed with a piece of Basic Gray that I punched with the Scallop Edge Border Punch. The stamp is punched out with the Postage Stamp Punch and backed with a piece of Riding Hood Red that I punched out with the 1 1/4″ Square Punch. The tag and the stamp are adhered to the base with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The tag is also backed with a piece of Very Vanilla to give it a little extra strength and the corners are rounded with the 3/16″ Corner Rounder. I stamped some images from the That’s the Ticket Stamp Set in Riding Hood Red and Basic Gray and punched them out with the Ticket Duo Builder Punch. A standard office paper clip holds them to the tag. The greeting is from the Family Reunion Stamp Set. I stamped it in Riding Hood Red and cut it out with the Bitty Banners Framelits Dies. After I cut off the left side I adhered it to the card with SNAIL. I forgot how much I like the Riding Hood Red paired with the Basic Gray and how neat the Fan Fair DSP is. I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Paper Players Sketch Challenge brought to you by Anne Marie.
