Smile SSC196 and PP424

January 13, 2019

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

The fabulous SS sketch is by Annette and the beautiful PP color combo is chosen by our hostess,  Anne Marie!  Oh, there are endless possibilities with both of these challenges.  We sure hope you will play along!

My card is created on a white card base.  I sponged Daffodil Delight and Grapefruit Grove inks on a white panel.  I used a sunburst embossing folder to create a huge sunshine.  The white rectangle strip was stenciled using Pool Party ink and a sponge.  I backed the sentiment panel with Pool Party and used the Casual Friday Smile stamp set.   I used Grapefruit Grove to stamp the word smile and black ink for the rest of the sentiment.  I added a few enamel dots to complete the card.  I am sending this to a friend that is battling cancer.  I hope it makes her smile!  It was made with love!
