There is another weekend under our belt. They do go too fast, even with Friday off, but I had a nice one none the less. Yesterday I worked on some projects and organized the craft area which seems to be an ongoing loosing battle! LOL! I just need to take an entire day and go through everything (I may need more than one day!) and put it away. Do you have the same problem, just when you find a place for everything you get some more?! Sigh, there are worse problems right?!?! 🙂
Monday means it’s time for this week’s Paper Players challenge. This week my clever friend Sandy has a cool sketch for us…
Love the layout and I liked the circles too so I stuck with them! I needed a fun bright card and I think I was successful! The base of my card is Basic Gray Card Stock, you can just see a little bit peeking out the right side. Down the left is a piece of Silver Glimmer Paper for a little sparkle. The background is a piece of Kaleidoscope Designer Series Paper that I backed with a piece of Whisper White to make it a little more stable. My greeting is from the Geometrical Stamp Set and is stamped in Basic Black, I used some Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the panel to the card. The Strawberry Slush and Basic Black circle outlines are cut out with the Circles Collection Framelits. My black circle has a piece of vellum behind it and in the middle is an ampersand cut out from some Bermuda Bay using the Typeset Alphabet Bigz Dies. The Smoky Slate circle is punched out with the 1 3/4″ Circle Punch and has some embossing paste that I tinted with some Bermuda Bay Re-Inker. Last up is one of the triangles from the Geometrical Stamp Set stamped in Crushed Curry and punched out with the Triangle Punch. So what do you think? Is the card fun and bright?! You’ll have to let me know! I do hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Paper Players sketch challenge from Sandy. Thanks for stopping by and have a great Monday! 🙂
