Instead of Texting Paper Players Challenge PP575 Sunday Stamps Challenge SSC275

 Jan. 23, 2022

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

The amazing Jaydee is our hostess at The Paper Players.  She has a fabulous sketch challenge for all of us.  

Sunday Stamps has a fun color challenge this week.   I love when I can combine two challenges!  

We can't wait to see what you create!  Have fun!

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

My Valentine is created for my granddaughter Addison.  She will be 13 next month and all she wants to do is play on the phone.  LOL!  I think this will make her smile.  

I found this Valentine paper in my stash.  I trimmed the two patterns and layered them on top of a black background to match the sketch.  I cut a black heart with the SU heart dies.  The roses stamp is from Hero Arts.  (I could not find the set on the Hero Arts page.  I know it was a Valentine kit from several years ago.)   Addison loves roses because Belle loved roses in Beauty and the Beast.  I stamped the heart in red and used a Wink of Stella pen to add shine and it picked up the red ink and made some of the roses look pink.  The sentiment is from Lawn Fawn Love Letters stamp set.  The inside sentiment reads "I made this card".  I trimmed the white card stock to look like a banner.  I added a few pearls to complete my card.
