Happy Thanksgiving week! Can you believe it? I knew it was coming fast but geez...I'm not ready for this year to end yet! But I guess it will go one without me if I don't jump on board so.... It's time for another week with The Paper Players
where lovely LeAnne has a fun sketch for us:
I'll admit, I took a few liberties with the sketch...not intentional mind you. I kinda forgot about the exact
placement of the sentiment as well as the little scalloped border on top...yikes! That will teach me to check the sketch badge before
I start work on my project! I hope LeAnne forgives me. :-)
My card was inspired by the rustic colors in the Under the Tree speciality DSP. I love the deep rich shade of Kraft and used that little diagonal striped piece as a starting point. I liked the idea of stripes with stars so I embossed a piece of Garden Green cardstock wiht the Lucky Stars folder and had a little fun with my Star Framelits.
There is no stamping on the stars just a little more speciality DSP (doesn't it look like snow?) and a trio of sentiments from Endless Wishes. I thought the small scale font looked sweet as a eensy little banner. Each one was stamped onto Naturals Ivory cardstock and snipped to meet the scale of the sentiment--the ends were flagged with the Hexagon punch.
It was gray and rainy ALL day here in the Sunshine (LOL) State and the ink on my card got a little wet. Please ignore the drizzle marks! I barely managed to get these pix taken before the deluge hit again. I used a star stamp set I already had--Be the Star-- on the inside in Crumb Cake, Garden Green and Cherry Cobbler. The clean lines of this set pair nicely with the overall clean look of the card. So, what do you think? I rather like it as these big stars just make me smile!
I know all the wonderful inspiration from The Paper Players
design team will make you smile too! Be sure to check out their work and then join us before the challenge ends on Friday, November 28th at Noon (PST).
Come back tomorrow when I have my final card as Featured Designer at the Merry Monday Challenge! Thanks for stopping by today, friends!
