I Just Hugged You in My Thoughts! The Paper Players Challenge PP611

October 2, 2022

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

The amazing Joanne is our hostess this week and she has a fantastic Theme Challenge for all of us!  "Changing Seasons" is so appropriate with the seasons changing and the days getting shorter.  We can't wait to see what you create!  

My card is created on a white card base.  I added a piece of Early Expresso card stock to the base.  I used the plaid paper from Lawn Fawn for the next two layers.  I have had this paper for a while, so not sure if it is still available.  I used the MFT Inside & Out Stitched Arch Stax Dies to cut these panels.  Then I cut a third layer with Very Vanilla card stock.  The little girl is a PI Girl from My Favorite Things.  The Jumping With Joy set is just perfect for changing season,  I colored her with Copic Markers and paper pieced her pants and scarf.  The leaves are cut with the plaid papers I used in the background.  I cut the girl and leaves with the matching dies.  I stamped the sentiment in dark brown.  It is from the same stamp set.
