The Paper Players.....Birthday


Good Monday Morning Peeps!!!
How was your weekend? We had a great one!
Today I am sharing a card I made yesterday with the sketch challenge on the The Paper Players Blog. I guess my card turned out a bit like the sketch! I again reached for the wonderful Hostess set from the Stampin' Up Summer Mini called "Love & Care". I do love these flowers. I broke into a pack of the new in-colors this one is called  "Wisteria Wonder"! OH MY, I do LOVE this color!! It is gorgeous! The DS paper here is from the "Flirtatious" Speciality paper pack, this paper will be in the new catalog that comes out July 1st.  It is awesome, you will definitely want some of this!!!




I tried to keep my card fairly clean and simple. I added my sentiment to the main image panel instead of where it was indicated on the sketch, so I added some whisper white satin ribbon around the card and tied a pretty bow. I finished it off with some basic pearls in the top corners and under the sentiment. 

Well, that is all from me for now, I finished up my very first control freak swap cards and will be mailing them out today, so I will try and post a pic of them later after everyone has gotten their swaps. Hope they like them I am super nervous about that.

Well, have a great day and HAPPY STAMPING!!!
