Hello Sunshine Paper Players Challenge PP523 Sunday Stamps Challenge SSC248

 Jan. 10, 2021

It's Sunday and time for new challenges at The Paper Players and Sunday Stamps 

The amazing Ann is the hostess at The Paper Players and she has a very fun color challenge for all of us!  

The Sunday Stamps sketch challenge is fabulous and it paired perfectly with the card I wanted to create!  
Have fun! 

My card is created on a white card base.  I stamped the Sunflower Background Stamp from Simon Says Stamp with black ink for my background.  The black is my neutral color.  Then I cut Blackberry Bliss, Bumblebee and Misty Moonlight frames using the MFT Elegant Rectangle Stax Dies.  I cut a white frame using the same dies and stamped the sunflower background on it.  I colored the flower with Copic Markers.  The sentiment is stamped in black using a retired MFT Pure Innocence Stamp set.  I added Wink of Stella on top of the Copic Marker for shine
