And I Think To Myself--PP397

June 10, 2018

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

The magnificent Nance has an amazing color challenge for us this week!  My first thought with this lovely combo was flowers, but I tried to stretch my imagination and go a different direction.  I was even able to incorporate one of my favorite sentiments!  I can't wait to see what you create! 

My card is created on a white card base.  I stamped a variety of tropical foliage in Lemon Lime Twist ink from SU using the SugarPea Designs Tropic Like It's Hot stamp set.  I stamped the flowers with Calypso Coral and cut all of the pieces out using the matching dies.  I cut a Crumb Cake circle using a circle die and stamped the sentiment from Serendipity Stamps Wonderful World with black ink.  The leaves were layered around the circle to form a wreath.  I added Wink of Stella for shine!
