The Paper Players.......You are just the nicest


Happy Day Peeps!!

Popping in here to share a card I made using the sketch this week at The Paper Players.

This week it is a great sketch:


I knew I wanted to use my Stampin Up Botanical Builder Framelits Dies, I am crazy about these.
I pulled out another fave of mine, the Go Wild DSP and decided on a few colors to use.


The base of my card is Crumb Cake and then I used three strips of the DSP.

I die cut a circle using my MFT pierced circle dies.
the flowers are cut using some Crisp Cantaloupe card stock. I used a bit of Basic Black for the centers and then added some yellow candy dots. The leaves are cut from a scrap of card stock from my stash, I think it is Pear Pizzazz.

The sentiment comes from the  Picture Perfect stamp set. 

I wanted to take a moment to share with you why I had been MIA this past week;


My beautiful grandaughter came into this world this past Tuesday, April 19th at 11;14 P.M.
We are over the moon about her, she is our first grandbaby and I could not be more thrilled.

Thank you for stopping by today!

Vicki
