Sunday, July 25


It's Sunday morning, so that means it's time for another challenge from the Paper Players. This week is our Inspiration Challenge. Isn't this pottery stunning? I love the pictures that Lesley chooses for us.

The other Paper Players have created beautiful cards for the challenge. Make sure you go visit and leave some love.

I do have to admit, I had a rough time with this one. This is the 6 th card that I created. I finally decided to go with a simple card. I inked up my Vintage Wallpaper EF with Night of Navy craft ink, and then embossed a piece of Whisper White card stock with it. I love this effect, and I thought I would remind all of you about it. I colored the dots in with my Daffodil Delight tied my ribbon, attached my sentiment, and tada here is my card.

We are getting home from a week of camping tonight. I am sure I will be happy to be in my bed. Thanks for stopping by,

Stamps: Oval All
Paper: Night of Navy, Whisper White
Inks: Night of Navy (craft and classic), Daffodil Delight (marker)
Extras: Vintage Wallpaper EF, Scallop and Large Oval punches, Dimensionals, White Organdy Ribbon

I LOVE THIS! I must try inking my EF - never been brave enough to try it.

PS: Your Cutest Blog On The Block background expired, and there's a pesky (no image) box floating around. Happened to me, too. Just go pick another background.
