A Little Note Paper Players Challenge PP541 and Sunday Stamps Challenge SSC257

May 16, 2021 

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

The amazing Anne Marie is our hostess this week at The Paper Players  and she has a fun Clean and Simple Challenge for all of us!  You know I love polka dots so, I am a happy girl!  Nothing more "southern" than polka dots!  Remember to keep it CAS this week! 

Sunday Stamps  has a beautiful color challenge! It was so easy to combine these two challenges this week!  

So put on those thinking caps and get creative! 


Use a minimum of 3 colors and a neutral of your choice.

I had a lot of fun creating this card.  My card base is white and then I added a white panel embossed with large polka dots for my background.  A panel of black was added for accent and then another white layer was added.  These little daises are from Clearly Besotted Celebrating You stamp set.  I stamped the daisies in black and colored the centers with yellow Copic Markers and also added some gray on the petals to create dimension!  The bright pink bow was cut using a die in this set.  I stamped the sentiment in stamp!
