Hey there friends! It's Sunday so you know what that means...it's time for...The Paper Players! Lovely Lesley is our hostess this week with a gorgeous, I mean gor-juss, color combination. I'll bet you can guess what color it includes, right? You got it...Pool Party!
Beautiful aren't they? When I look at these colors I hear, "Spring is here, Spring is here!" Looking through my stamps for something "spring-y", I found one I haven't used in a long time, Nature Walk which I combined with Linda's fabulous sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches:
This is one of those sets that I struggle with. All the images are so pretty and lend themselves to a collage style which I love. Problem is, I still need a lot of practice with the "collage" look. I fuss over placement of the images when I really just need to let it flow, right? Well, anyway...after many tries on scrap paper, I'm finally happy with this one...I think ;-). All the images are stamped in all 4 challenge colors...
with a little extra sparkle, via Dazzling Diamonds, on the bees' wings. A little background stamping in tone-on-tone Crumb Cake really adds some interest to the plain card base.
I'm not really sure what I will use this card for so I left the inside sentiment-free for use at a later time. But I did have fun with more Pear Pizzazz foliage and some bees. Just love that sweet little bee. That's it for me folks, I hope I've inspired you to play along with Lesley's gorgeous color combination.
