The Paper Players Challenge-PP65

I was soooo busy last week getting ready for 3 events that I was not able to play with the Paper Players :( and this week they have a sketch challenge......I love sketch challenges the best. Here is this weeks sketch challenge:

And my card:

Did you notice the colored Mica Flakes?

And the Inlaid Embossing Technique?

And the doily from the Flirtatious DSP?

The colored Mica Flakes was so easy.....two drops of re-inker in an embellishment container, add a pinch of Mica Flakes, snap on the lid, shake, shake, shake.....empty out on a paper towel and let dry!

We are off on business for a few days so my post must be short! Have a great day!

  • Cardstock: Basic Black, Soft Suede, Very Vanilla
  • DSP: Newsprint, Flirtatious
