Thinking of You--PP344

May 14, 2017

Happy Mother's Day to all the Mother's, Mommy's, Mom's, Mum's, and Mama's!  I hope your day is relaxing, restful and very special!  

It's Sunday and time for a new challenge at The Paper Players!  I am the hostess this week and I have a bright color challenge for all of you!  

Have fun and get creative!  I can't wait to see all of the ideas you can come up with using my color palette!

My card is created on a white card base.  A Pear Pizzazz rectangle was cut using a stitched die.  I cut a white zig zag square using W Plus 9 Pinking Square dies.  The jar, flowers and leaves are stamped with Versa Mark ink.  I embossed them with white embossing powder.  The stamp set is from Newton's Nook Lovely Blooms and the matching dies were used to cut out each piece.  I used a sponge and Tempting Turquoise, Tangerine Tango, Real Red and Pear Pizzazz inks to distress all the pieces.  Wink of Stella and dimensionals were added on the flowers.  A sentiment from SugarPea Designs Caring Critters was stamped in black Memento ink.  Clear sparkling sequins were added for fun.

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.
