PAPER PLAYERS CHALLENGE # 55

Yikes almost missed the deadline for the PPC #55.

I used the Sanded background stamp in crumb cake ink on card stock of the same color, leaving an opening in the center for my focal image. The image is from Asian Artistry stamped in Basic Gray ink with the bird stamped in Poppy Parade (mainly due to the fact that I don't seem to have any Poppy Parade card stock)! I added a ribbon of Baja Breeze topped with a pearl and three smaller pearls in the opposite corner. The sentiment is stamped in Basic Gray ink.
Thanks for looking.

LOL, that LeAnne is so funny isn't she?! I love this card Mom! So simple and elegant--perfect for a sympathy card. I love the Sanded BG and I also love the trio of pearls in the corner--draws your eye right to the sentiment! GREAT job! Thanks for playing along with us at the Paper Players!
