I Adore You--PP295

May 15, 2016

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

The lovely LeAnne is our hostess this week!  She has a fun Clean and Simple Challenge for us!  Create your CAS project with a "WILD" animal on it!  We can't wait to see what you create!  

CAS is always difficult for me.  I like layers, so this may be a little too busy!  LOL!  My card base is Basic Black.  The next layer is Bermuda Bay embossed with a zebra embossing folder.  I added a strip of black and white polka dots across the top.  Two banners were cut with Calypso Coral and Basic Black using the MFT Fishtail Flag Stax Dies.  A stitched circle die was used for the white circle.  I stamped a zebra from the Zoo Babies set by Stampin' Up! in black Versa Fine ink and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.  I fussy cut the zebra and used Stampin'  Dimensionals  to add dimension.  The sentiment is stamped and embossed, too.  Three black enamel dots were added for fun.  

So happy you stopped by my blog today!  Please leave a message!  I love to hear from you!  

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.
