Your Friend Always The Paper Players Challenge PP677

 February 17, 2024

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

The lovely Ann  is our hostess this week and she has a very fun Clean and Simple Challenge for all of us!  "Forever Friends" is the theme.  It is always great to have a friend card in your stash.  Remember to keep it CAS.  Have fun and get creative! 

Have minimal layers and embellishments
Have plenty of open space
Are simple and uncluttered

I covered the cover of my white card base with a pink and white striped paper I found in my stash.  I used an embossing folder on a white panel that I cut with a postage die.  The pen is created using The Greetery Inked Well Die Set.  I cut the nib and little pieces with gold foil.  I used a floral pattern for the pen base.  The sentiment is from The Greetery Sign Off Sentiment Stamp Set.  The matching  Dies were used to cut out the sentiment.  I did not add any embellishments to keep it CAS.  That is always hard for me!  I love the way this turned out.
