Cheers! --PP395

May 27, 2018

HAPPY Memorial Day to all of your in the U.S.A.  Such a wonderful holiday to remember the ones that made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom!   I am forever grateful!  

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

Our lovely LeAnne is the hostess and she has a wonderful sketch challenge for all of us!  I think this sketch is fantastic!  I had so many ideas.  Can't wait to see yours.

My card is created on a white card base.  I cut a Berry Blast panel with a stitched rectangle die.  My top rectangle was created with a variety of distress inks on a watercolored panel using the smooshing method.  A few splatters were added with the inks.  I trimmed this with another rectangle stitched die.  I used the Reverse Confetti Clink Cuts for the sentiment and the wine glasses.  I stamped the red wine using Fresh Fig ink and the Clink Stamp Set.  The "Cheers" sentiment was cut with black and then four times in Berry Blast card stock.  I had a scrap of the distress panel left from trimming the rectangle and used it to stamp the rest of the sentiment in black.  A white circle was cut using a stitched die to mount the glasses on.  A few sparkling clear sequins were added to complete my card.
