Merry and Bright PP374

December 10, 2017

It's Sunday and time for our final challenge of 2017 at the The Paper Players!

Today is Deanne's  (Three Trees Paper Creations)  last week as a Guest Designer.  She has been such a wonderful part of our team for the past year.  I will truly miss her work, but I know she will join us in the gallery when she can.  Thank you, DeAnne for being such an inspiration to all of us!!! 

I am the hostess this week and I have a bold, vibrant color palette for all of you!  I needed more Christmas cards, but this color combo has so much potential.  I can't wait to see where your imagination takes you!  Have fun!

My card is created on a Garden Green card base.  I added a panel of Lemon Lime Twist.  The top white panel is trimmed with a stitched border.  I added the sentiment in black.  The three bows are stamped in Melon Mambo and Powder Pink inks.  The stamp set Holiday Bows is from The Ton.  I cut them out with the matching dies.  I added Wink of Stella and clear sparkling sequins for lots of shine.
