Paper Players.....Happy Birthday




Happy Tuesday Peeps!!

Today I am sharing a card I made using the challenge this week at The Paper Players.
This week is a sketch:


I love a sketch and I still have new goodies so I had to play along!

I started with a base of white card stock. I then used a layer of one of the new in colors. Mint Macaron. I then used more white and embossed with the Brick Wall EF, I can not tell you how much I LOVE this embossing folder.
I stamped a few flowers and leaves from the new Birthday Blossoms stamp set and colored with Mint Macaron ink. The centers are Delightful Dijon. 




The sentiment is from the tin of cards stamp set. I used a strip of Mint across the bottom and the other piece is from the In color Envelope Paper. I cut out the flowrs and layered them around the circle. I cut the leaves apart and tucked them around the flowers. I used one of the In Colors Blossom Accents in the center of the middle flower. I placed three silver sequins around and called it done.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Hi Vicki, I usually just look at the pretty things you do and don't leave a comment, but decided that wasn't very nice of me! I must say that your cards are beautiful and I thank you so much for sharing your talent! Hope you don't mind when I case them!!!

Vicki, you sure make the prettiest cards! I love this new embossing folder, and what a beautiful "bouquet" with the wonderful accents for their centers. Stunning, my friend! Hugs!

Beautiful, Vicki! Love the bouquet of flowers framing the sentiment and the soft colors are gorgeous. The brick wall EF adds a nice contrast to the flowers--I can see then climbing up a vine on an old brick wall! So glad you joined in the sketch fun at The Paper Players!
