Happy Birthday With Love PP458

Sept. 8, 2019

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

The amazingly talented Ann is our hostess this week!  She has a beautiful color challenge for all of us!  Don't you just love these rich fall colors?  We can't wait to see what you create!

My card is created on a Merry Merlot card base.  The next layer is cut with a stitched die in Pretty Peacock.  I created a smooched watercolored panel using several shades of blue Distress Oxide Inks.  The bottles are stamped in Cajun Craze using the   Bottled Up stamp set from The Greetery.  I cut them out with the matching dies.  The daisies are from Clearly Besotted "Celebrating You".  I used the matching dies to cut them out.  I colored the daisies with Copic Markers.  The centers of the daisies are stamped with Cajun Craze.  I must admit, I had trouble using this color combo, but now I absolutely love it!  Thank you Ann, for making me step out of the box.
