If You're Lucky Enough To Be Different-Never Change-PP254

July 19, 2015

It's Sunday and time for another challenge at The Paper Players!  The lovely, Laurie is our hostess this week and her challenge is all about  "Frames!"  WOW!  Think of the possibilities.  Use your imagination and play along with us! 

I am out of town today, so I can not recall what patterned papers I used.  (Sorry) My card base is a square, (5 x 5) in Basic Black.  The layers are formed with patterned paper, black and Pool Party.  After I had my card base finished, I realized it was supposed to be CAS.  I hope Laurie will forgive me for adding the extra layers.  I added black Baker's Twine around the card and tied a simple bow.

The stamp is a retired stamp from Stampin' Up! called "Spec-Tacular."  I stamped the glasses using Momento Black ink.  I stamped an extra pair of glasses in Real Red and fussy cut them.  I added them using foam tape.  I also added Glossy Accents on the red pair of glasses for added shine.  The sentiment are stickers from the Tim Holtz pack, Black and White Small Talk Sticker.  I love the sentiment and is was perfect for my card.

I am so glad you stopped by my blog today.  Please leave a comment and let me know your thoughts.  I love to hear from you!
