Happy Sunday friends and welcome to another week with The Paper Players. Ann has chosen a soft color combination for our Color Challenge:
Aren't these colors beautiful together? Despite a week off for Spring Break last week, I didn't have a lot of time for stamping so I kept today's project clean-and-simple:
I just love these cherry blossoms from the Easter Blossoms stamp set--so soft and pretty! Here, I stamped the blossoms in Early Espresso directly on some Blushing Bride designer paper from the Level 1 hostess pack. Love how the blossoms on the paper are reminiscent of the cherry blossoms.
I added two rows of a scallop border punched from Early Espresso cardstock. Since the rest of the card is pretty simple, I needed some dimension here so I distressed the cardstock with a bone folder to curl up the edges and separate the layers a little bit. I wrapped the whole panel with some yummy Baja Breeze seam binding ribbon under which I tucked a strip of Baja Breeze cardstock so the patterned paper would not show through.
Finally, I scattered some basic pearls among the cherry blossoms for a little shimmer and dimension. Ahhh, love those pearls!
Thanks for stopping by my little blog corner today! I hope you'll check out the rest of the design team's creations and play along with us this week! Just be sure to link up your creation to The Paper Players blog by midnight (PST) Friday, March 18th to be considered for the design team's choice as Headliner or A Cut Above! Have a great week my friends!
