Keep Cool--PP292

April 24, 2015

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

I am the hostess this week, and I have a fun sketch challenge for you!  I am the Queen of layers, so I can't wait to see what you create!  

 My base card is white card stock.  The fun bathing suit paper from Carta Bella-Summer Lovin'  is cut using the SugarPea Designs  Zig Zag Stitched Rectangle die.  The green, pink and yellow strips are from the same paper pack.  I cut the circles using the SugarPea Designs Zig Zag Stitched Circle Dies.  The bathing suit is stamped on pink using the Swimsuit Season Stamp Set by Lawn Fawn.  The sentiment is stamped with black Versa Fine ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  The banner ends were snipped with scissors.  Pink enamel dots were added for fun! 

Don't forget to check out the fabulous inspirations from our design team and I hope that you will play along with our challenge this week.
