Hi there, another GREAT challenge from Paper Players, a sketch by Nance Lempinen Leedy (my daughter), yahoo!

Anyhow it was getting close to deadline time again and didn't want to miss this one.

So here is my card, what do you think?

I wanted to use some of SU's newest colors, Calypso Coral, Lucky Limeade and the old standby Whisper white.

The stamps are from Papertrey Ink, Botanical Silhouettes and Peaceful Garden. I really like the blossom stamp it looks so real as if it's gently swaying in the breeze. Also the sentiment "May peace fill your soul this day", it's very adaptable to either a special occasion such as birthday, etc., or a sympathy card, which I've been needing too many of lately. The bottom of the card was die cut using SU's Top Note die, another of my fav's.

Thanks for looking.

Yay, you played with my sketch!! Lovely CAS design...Lucky Limeade and Calaypso Coral are beautiful together and that sentiment is so heartfelt. I love those three little circles in the middle that balance the swaying blossoms. What a gorgeous stamp set and a gorgeous card! So glad you could join us at The Paper Players this week! ((hugs))
