Just Want To Say Paper Players Challenge PP572

January 2, 2022


I hope your holiday season was filled with special moments!!  Wishing you happiness, good health and love in the New Year!

The "Amazing" Ann is our hostess this week.  She is kicking the New Year off right with "SPARKLE" as our theme!  We cant' wait to see what you create! 


My card is created on a white card base.  I covered the top of the card with SU Night of Navy card stock.  The next layer is gold that I embossed with an  embossing folder that makes texture.  It is from SU, but I don't know the name.  I rounded the corners with a corner rounder.  I added a strip of vellum on top of the gold and rounded the corners on it, too.  The die for the sentiment is from the SU Floral Gallery die set.  I cut the words twice.  Once with Night of Navy and once with gold foil.  The Happy Birthday stamp set is from the Art Gallery set by SU.  The die is from the SU Floral Gallery set, too.  I stamped the flowers in Daffodil Delight and Hello Honey ink.  I stamped the leaves with green ink and then fussy cut the flowers and glued them on top of the leaves.  Gold sequins were added to complete my card.
