Paper Players Sketch....on your Birthday


Good Monday Morning Peeps.

Today I a sharing a card I made with the sketch challenge this week on the The Paper Players Blog. I had saw a really pretty card made by the ever so talented Deb from ARTfelt Impressions and I used that for my inspiration on this card. I love the new in color called Wisteria Wonder. I paired it up with some Concord Crush, and the DSP is from the new Flirtatious Speciality Paper Pack.

The base of the card is Wisteria Wonder card stock and then came the strips of DSP backed with Concord Crush card stock. I used the new Perfect Pennants die with Concord Crush card stock for the circle element. I then stamped the doily with wisteria ink onto whisper white card stock. I used my 1-3/4 inch circle punch to punch it out. I added to the Concord Crush piece with some dimensionals.


I added some whisper white satin ribbon and some basic pearls across the flag piece from the sketch. The sentiment is from the "On Your Birthday" stamp set and is stamped with Concord Crush ink. It is a bit blurry but I was almost done with the card and didn't want to start over. It is still very readable so I thought I would just go with it! I added a few more pearls in the top corners. I am not completely happy with this one but it is OK. I might try that sketch again later. I have a couple of card orders to complete this week so I may be a little less active with my post.

Thanks for coming by today and HAPPY STAMPING!!!!
