It's Sunday, and time to play with the Players! The talented Nance Leedy has a selected a delectable quartet of colors for us this week in a Paper Players Color Challenge. Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive, Basic Gray, and a splash of Whisper White...how yummy is that! I hope you join us this week...I can't wait to see what you create!
- Depth and dimension! A third Blossom from Field Flowers was stamped and snipped out. Popping it up on a Stampin' Dimensional and off-setting it not only adds interest, but also depth and dimension.
- Balance! The Old Olive Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border draws the eye to the image mat, and balances the off-set flower.
- Pearls! A collection of pearls graces the corner of the larger background mat as well as the centers of the flowers.
- Bow-licious! A Basic Gray Satin Bow anchors the central panel and adds a touch of elegance.
Aren't you proud of me...I did not spritz or distress on this card! That's because I am preparing for my stint as the Guest Designer this week for the fabulous new challenge, Freshly Made Sketches! The twist to this challenge is to keep things "clean". So I will have to control that urge to spritz and daub!
And speaking of preparing...preparation is underway for my biggest BLOG CANDY give-away ever. Why my biggest give-away ever? Just check out my site counter. I am quickly approaching the one-million hit mark! Once I reach that milestone...watch out! I can't wait to share my blog candy surprise!
As you read this post, I am on a mini-vacation with my sister. We are visiting our dear Aunt Helen. I will be away from the computer and emails until late Monday...so please bear with me! It will take time for me to catch up on my emails and questions once I return. However, your comments are important to me, and I am anxious to hear what you think of today's card. So please, will you take the time to give me your opinion? And remember, if you ever have any questions about the cards that I create or the techniques that I use, I am only an email away. Until next time...
Coming Soon: Blog Candy Blow-out; Pals Halloween Hop; Freshly Made Sketches Guest Designer; Twin Talk
