The Paper Players Challenge-PP61

This was a fun sketch for me and is available for you to view at "The Paper Players Challenge". They sure do have a bunch of talented designers! I actually created this card on Sunday when "Hurricane Irene" was due to hit our area. It drizzled all day long and the winds picked up well into the night but everything turned out fine. It's funny to see people freak out at the grocery stores when announcements like this are circulated. I'm so glad we didn't get hit hard as was forecast.

Here is a photo of the sketch for this week:

And this is my submission:

Out of all the Designer Series Papers that I have ever purchased, I think the Spice Cake DSP has been my favorite thus far. I'm a big fan of the "fall" colors so this is right up my alley! And those big, humongous Spice Cake Designer Buttons that match the DSP so perfectly.......and we even have fabric too!

Card Supplies:
  • Stamp Set: Pretty Postage, Always Elegant
  • Cardstock: Very Vanilla, Soft Suede
  • DSP: Spice Cake
  • Tools: BigShot Machine, Framed Tulips Textured Impressions Folder, Scallop Circle Punch, 1 1/4" Circle Punch, Scallop Squares Duo, Mini Glue Dots
  • Inks: Soft Suede
  • Accessories: Very Vanilla Seam Binding Ribbon, Spice Cake Designer Buttons
