Mother-- I Love You!---PP #342

April 30, 2017

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

Our lovely Jaydee is the hostess this week and she has a fabulous Tic-Tac-Toe board for all of us to play along with. This is my favorite challenge.  There are always so many creative entries.  I love the variety of cards when there is a game board.  Have fun!

My card is created using the middle column.  (Sequins, Die Cut, Yellow)  I had so much fun making this card for my Mom.  I know she will love it.

My card is created using the Neat and Tangled Doily Envelope Die.  I must admit, it took me several times before I got the die cut out, but oh, was it worth the effort.  It is beautiful!  

I trimmed a yellow piece of card stock with the MFT Blueprints 20 Die and then cut the top white panel using the same die set.  The roses and leaves were stamped in Memento black using the Altenew Penned Rose stamp set.  The sentiment is also from this stamp set.  I stamped the rose three times and colored it with Copic Markers.  I fussy cut layers so the rose looked dimensional.  I stamped the leaves twice for the same effect.  Wink of Stella and sparkling clear sequins were added for fun.  

When I was finished I wrapped yellow twine around the envelope and added a big white button to seal the card. 

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.
