I Adore You!--PP326

January 8, 2017

It's Sunday and time for the first challenge in 2017 with The Paper Players !  

The Lovely LeAnne is our hostess this week!  She has a fabulous challenge for all of us!  We are "Going Green"!  We want you to recycle an item to use on your card.  It can be a recycled embellishment, a ribbon, a flyer from your mail or anything you find to use on your card.  We can't wait to see what you create!

We also want to welcome our new Guest Designers, Crystal, Valentyna and Deanne!  We are so excited to have them join us!  

My card is created on a white card base.  I found an old piece of Valentine paper in my stash and used it on my background.  I stamped the Stampingbella stamp, Bonnie Loves Bows image on Neenah Solar White paper and colored her with Copic Markers.  This Valentine if for my Granddaughter, Victoria.  She loves purple!  Lots of Wink of Stella was added for shine.  Clear sparkling sequins were added for fun.  I added  recycled white twine to wrap around my card and added a bow. I found this twine on a card I saved.  It was perfect to complete this card.  

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.
