That Succs!-- PP337 and SCC149

March 26, 2017

It's Sunday and time for new challenges at The Paper Players and Sunday Stamps!

I am babysitting this weekend for  two of my GRANDS, so I was excited that I could combine the challenges.  

I am the hostess at The Paper Players this week.  You all know that I love layers!  The beautiful color palette from Sunday Stamps was perfect for the card I wanted to share.  Please make sure you use a minimum of three of the colors in your card.  PLEASE remember NOT to link your card to more than four challenges.  The guidelines are listed below for both challenges.  Just a friendly reminder! 

My card is created on a white card base.  I used the MFT Blueprints 20 for cutting the beautiful purple plaid paper from Lawn Fawn's Perfectly Plaid Rainbow paper pack.  The Stamps of Life Succulents2  stamp set and dies were used on the cactus and pot. I have had this stamp set laying on my table for months.  I love succulents and they have become very popular in decorating.  I do not have a green thumb and people laugh when I say, "I can't keep a cactus alive"!, but it is true.  I cut a Mossy Meadows circle from the Zig Zag Stitched circle die from SugarPea Designs.  The Wild Wasabi rectangle was embossed with an embossing folder that I thought looked southwestern.  The cactus is stamped and colored with Copic Markers.  A few purple enamel dots were added for fun.  

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