Thank You So Much PP495

June 14, 2020

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

The lovely Laurie is our hostess this week and she has a fabulous color challenge for all of us!  We can't wait to see what you create!

I must admit, this color challenge was hard for me!  I kept thinking I should make a Christmas card.  I needed a thank you card, so I remembered I had this Basic Grey paper in my stash, so I cut a piece to add to the bottom of the card.  I trimmed the white panel with a scalloped border die.  The flowers are cut using Real Red and the leaves are cut using Tranquil Tide.  I used my favorite MFT dies Stitched Blooms.  

Challenge Rules:
  1. Create a new paper-craft project specifically for this challenge.
  2. Upload your creation to your blog with a link back to us.
  3. Please provide a direct link to the post featuring your challenge entry.
  4. Please link your card to no more than four challenges, TOTAL, including ours
  5. Please be considerate of our requests; entries that do not follow any of these rules will be deleted without notification.
  6. Have fun, and thank you for playing with us!

Thanks for stopping by my blog today.  Please leave a comment and let me know your thoughts! 



  1. Wow, Claire! What a beautiful card! The scalloped border set at an angle really ups the "Wow" factor. I love the flowers. Have a wonderful week!

  2. Blooms are always a good choice..beautiful thank you card! I found this color combo online, and it was used for nautical cards. I don't think any of us went that direction!

  3. The colors worked out great! The stitched dies add so much to your card!

  4. What a pretty card! Love how the gray pulls it away from being a Christmas card! And I LOVE those dies!! :)

  5. What a great design Claire! That asymmetrical scallop panel looks fabulous and I love those polka dots! Super pretty!

  6. Claire, I love the grey polka dots - they are perfect with your big, bold flowers. What a wonderful, bright and cheerful thank you card. I love it!

  7. I love that grey dotty paper and the scallop edge of your white angled layer adds a great feminine touch that really allows those fabulous blooms to shine - just gorgeous Claire!

  8. Such a fun and happy card, Claire! The playful polka dots are the perfect touch, too.
