Life Is Meant To Be Enjoyed--PP301

June 26, 2016

WOW!  We were so thrilled with all of the entries in our 300th challenge last week!  Congratulations to all the of the card winners and to our blog candy winners!   Thank you for being part of our CELEBRATION!  

It's time for a new challenge at The Paper Players!  My dear friend, JoAnne, from across the pond has a fantastic sketch for all of us to play along with.  The possibilities are endless!  We can't wait to see what you create!

My card is created on a white card base.  The chevron paper is cut using the SugarPea Designs Zig Zag Stitched Rectangle Dies.  The small rectangle is cut using My Favorite Things stitched rectangle dies.  The white circle is cut using the Stampin' Up circle dies.  The bathing beauty was stamped on Neenah Solar White card stock and colored with Copic Markers.  The Fun In The Sun stamp is from My Favorite Things.  I fussy cut the image and used Stampin' Dimensionals to adhere her to the circle.  Pink candy dots were added for fun.  The sentiment was stamped in Momento black ink.  Wink of Stella was added for shine.  I just love this image.  It reminds me of how I like to spend a summer day!  

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.
