PAPER PLAYERS # 38










Here is my card for this beautiful color combination from the Paper Players Challenge.



My card base is SU's Very Vanilla card stock with a smaller mat of Early Espresso, an added strip of Blushing Bride from the SU Designer Series Paper Patterns Pack for the basics. The peeking out piece of Baja Breeze was cut using the Top Note die. I then stamped my sentiment on the Baja Breeze and punched an opening in the Blushing Bride pattern paper so the sentiment would show. The beautiful flower is created using PTI's Beautiful Blooms #2 die in shades of Baja Breeze and Early Espresso Felt alternating the colors. (Although that's not what PTI calls the colors, but I think they're close enough so that's what I'm calling them). I thought the card looked a little too plain and simple so I added a few pearls to dress it up. You know pearls always add beauty.
Hope you enjoy this card, I love the colors.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you let me know what you think of it.
