SO Berry Kind of You! The Paper Players Challenge PP595

 June 12, 2022

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

I am the hostess this week and I have a great color challenge for all of you!  It can be a patriotic project with July 4th coming in a few weeks, or you can stretch your imagination and try something different.  I think you will love all the amazing DT cards.

Nothing tastes better in June than juicy, fresh strawberries.  My card is created on a white card base.  I cut a Pacific Point polka layer using retired SU paper.  I added a Real Red rectangle that I embossed for texture.  The top white layer is cut using the Avery Elle Wonky Stitches Die.  The Strawberries are stamped in Real Red using the Concord & 9th Sweet Strawberries
stamp set.  I stamped the stems in Crumb Cake on watercolor paper for texture.  I figured since it was a neutral, I could add it to the combo.  The sentiment is from the same set and stamped in black ink.  A few sparkling clear sequins were added to complete my card.  I also added Wink of Stella to the berries for shine.
