YOU are BRAVE The Paper Players Challenge PP583 and Sunday Stamps Challenge SSC279

March 20, 2022

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

The amazing Laurie is our hostess this week at The Paper Players. Yes, Spring is finally here and blooms are all around us in Atlanta.  Such a beautiful season for everyone!  I love SPRING!!!

Sunday Stamps  has an amazing color challenge  for you to use.  Such bright and happy colors! Have fun!  

(Use a minimum of 3 colors)

Unfortunately, my card is not a happy one this week.  I just found out that a dear friend is battling cancer.  I wanted to send a card to remind her that I am praying for her.  

My card is created on a white card base.  I added another layer of white card stock cut with a postage die.  This stamp set is from Concord & 9th, "You are Enough".  I have used it often but, I love it and the simplicity speaks volumes to me.  I believe this set is retired, but saw one on Ebay if you are interested.  The sentiment is from the same set and stamped in black ink.  I added a few red hearts stamped from this set, too.
