You Rule Paper Players Challenge PP553

 August 8, 2021

It's Sunday and time for a new challenge at The Paper Players!

I am the hostess this week and I have a very bright color challenge for all of you!  I know flowers will be a big element this week, but with school going back in Georgia, I decided to make a card for my grand daughter Addison.  Can you believe she is in the 7th grade?!?!  How did that happen???

My card is created on a white card base.  I added a fun green patterned paper on the base for my background.  The backpack was created using the three colors in the challenge using the Spellbinders Small Die of the month from Aug. 2019.  It is called Pack It Up!  I never used it before and it is quite time consuming to cut all the little detail pieces, but so worth the effort!  I love the way it turned out and I think she will love it!  I added white enamel dots to complete the card!
