December 11, 2016

It's Sunday and time for our last challenge for 2016 at The Paper Players!  The lovely and talented Jaydee is our hostess this week!  Her beautiful color palette is perfect for the end of the year.  From Christmas to Happy New Year, let your imagination run wild!  We can't wait to see your creations.

It is also the last challenge for our FABULOUS guest designers!  I have loved working with these amazing artist.  THANK you very much Linda Callahan, Colleen Bagley and Hannelie Bester for sharing your talents with us!.  You will be missed!  

My card is created on a white card base.  The black scalloped piece is cut with a die from MFT Blueprints 20.  The top piece with the gold and black polka dots was in my stash and cut with the same die set.  The glittery gold tag is cut using the Thanks -Reverse Confetti Tag die.  The wine glasses were stamped in Versa Mark ink and heat embossed with silver powder.  They are from Reverse Confetti Clink Stamp Set.  The matching dies were used to cut out the glasses and sentiment.  I used black card stock for the sentiment.  A piece of black and white ribbon was added in the tag and I used a piece of gold thread to die a bow.  I love the way this card turned out! 

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.
