Happy Sunday, friends, and welcome to another week with my best gal-pals The Paper Players! It's Jaydee's turn as hostess and as our reigning queen of clean and simple, she is challenging us to "Tag It: Create a Clean-and-Simple card with a tag on it!"
I pulled out my current favorite designer paper, Everyday Enchantment, and dusted off an old favorite, Beautiful Butterflies Bigz die, to make this:
A friend pointed out to me today that I use Pool Party a LOT. It's true, I'm guilty...but it is such a versatile color! Here, it pairs well with Crumb Cake and the Pure Poppy of the designer paper.
There's some other upcoming Sale-a-Bration goodies on here...Calypso Coral Organdy Ribbon and the Everyday Enchantment brad pack. Tied onto the butterfly, the ribbon makes a fine pair of gossamer antenna, don't you think?
Even though it's retired, this sentiment from the Hope Happens set is my favorite to pair with a butterfly. This card will be on it's way to a friend who recently went back to work after several years at home with her children.
And there you have it--a clean-and-simple post for a clean-and-simple card! Be sure to check out the rest of The Paper Players design team inspiration. We hope you will consider playing along with us this week! Our challenge closes on Friday, January 27th at 12 Noon (PST). I hope to see you in the gallery!
