Thankful For A Friend Like You--PP318

October 23, 2016

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

The amazing Jaydee is the hostess this week!  She has a fabulous sketch for all of us to use!  We can't wait to see what you create! 

My card is created on a white card base.  A piece of Kraft paper was trimmed with a stitched border.  I found some gold/ Kraft papers in my stash.  I cut a polka dot rectangle, a stitched circle and a fabulous gold leaf using Stampin' Up! Vintage leaves.  A few sequins were added to complete my card.  The pictures really don't do the card justice.  It is very pretty in real life.  

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.
