I Just Love you! PP427

February 3, 2019

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

The amazing Joanne is our hostess this week and she has a fabulous theme challenge for all of us.  With Valentine's Day just around the corner, it is the perfect challenge.  Always so fun to spread a little love!

I am also entering my card in the Cardz 4 Gals #89 Challenge.
Hearts is the theme--red, pink and white.
I am also playing along with Dragonfly Journeys--I Heart You #133.
And the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge  Anything Goes.

My card is created on a white card base.  I LOVE lots of layers so, I added a Real Red and Pink layer behind my fun Valentine paper.  This card is for my GRAND daughter Addison.  She loves to talk on the phone and she loves music.  I added the strip of music notes and used a heart border to add two red borders to make the music paper pop.  Then I cut four ovals using dies to place behind this MFT Pure Innocence Cutie.  I used the A Phone Call Away stamp set.  I paper pieced her outfit and colored her with Copic Markers.  I used the matching die to cut her out.  The sentiment  is stamped in Versa Mark ink and heat embossed in white embossing powder.  A little Wink of Stella was added to the phone and her hair for shine.  I also added Glossy Accents on the pink phone and black shoes.  My Aunt Betty had a phone like this and I always loved it.  Great memories! 

I added a strip of Real Red and the Valentine paper on the inside of the card.  I stamped the same image in black and added a sentiment from the same set.  A few red enamel hearts were added for fun.  A strip of the black Valentine paper was added on the flap of the envelope. 

I hope my card made you smile today!
