Sending You Sunshine! The Paper Players Challenge PP638 Sunday Stamps Challenge SSC308

April 30, 2023

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

The Lovely Anne Marie is the hostess this week at  The Paper Players It's time for a Tic-Tac-Toe challenge and this one is fabulous! 

This fantastic Sketch Challenge by Melissa at Sunday Stamps  is perfect for all types of cards!  So many possibilities with this one!  Have Fun!  

I used the last column on the TTT Board: Wet embossing, Patterned Papers and Birthday.  

My card is created using a fabulous paper pack by Stampin' Up!  I love these papers so much.  I covered the background with a blue print.  The rectangle is from the same paper pack.  I backed it in white to make it pop off the blue.  The flowers are from the Stampin' Up  Two-Toned Flora stamp set.  I used Crisp Cantaloupe and Calypso Coral inks to create the flowers.  The leaves were stamped with Pool Party.  The circle was cut with a circle die to place behind the flowers.  The sentiment is heat embossed in white.
