Today is a very special day for me. My Twins, Joe and John turn 40 today!!!!!!!!! How did that happen? Life certainly flies by. They have brought me so much joy and I look forward to many more special times together. I don't get to see them often, but I am so happy they are doing well, have beautiful families and talk to their Mom almost every day. You can't ask for more than that.
It is time for a new challenge at The Paper Players!
The amazingly talented Ann is our hostess this week and she has a beautiful color challenge for all of us! We are so excited to see what you create!
My card is created using a white card base. I added a black panel and then a red flowered patterned paper. Then, I cut the SugarPea Designs Dangle Hearts Cover Plate in pink and added it to the top. I cut a black circle with a SSS stitched die and cut a coordinating flower circle to place on top of the black circle. The little girl is from MFT Pure Innocence Blowing Kisses stamp set. I colored her with Copic Markers and paper pieced her dress with polka dots. I added a little red heart in her hands. This is for my Grand Daughter Victoria. This little girl reminds me of her. The sentiment is from the same stamp set. This color combo is so fun because the black adds a fun element to the red and pink. Thanks Ann for a great color combo to work with.
