Sunnier Days Ahead--PP288

March 27, 2016

HAPPY EASTER to all of you that celebrate!  

It's Sunday and time for a new challenge at The Paper Players!

The Lovely LeAnne is our hostess this week and she has a fabulous sketch challenge for us to play along with!  We can't wait to see what you create! 

I created my card using a white card base.  The sunglasses paper and other colored papers are from a paper pack by Carta Bella Summer Lovin'.  The Zig Zag Stitched rectangle die is from SugarPea Designs.  The three colors were cut in small rectangles and embossed with the Decorative Dots embossing folder from Stampin' Up!  The sentiment is from Flip Flop Season by Simon Says Stamp.  It is stamped on a stitched flag die from My Favorite Things using Melon Mambo ink.  The blue circle is cut using the SugarPea Designs  Zig Zag Stitched circle dies.   The sunglasses (can't find the die name) were cut with Melon Mambo and black card stock.  I shaded in the glasses with a Copic Marker and added Glossy Accents all over the lenses for shine.  I also added a black enamel heart on the sentiment for fun! 

So happy you stopped by my blog today!  Please leave a message!  I love to hear from you!  

Don't forget to check out the fabulous inspirations from our design team and I hope that you will play along with our challenge this week.
