Paper Players 76 and SSSC147

Sunday, December 11, 2011

Just when I thought it was safe to put away my Christmas stamps along comes this great color challenge from my friends at The Paper Players.


I took one look at it and knew that, for me, gold meant embossing.  And maybe some gold cardstock.  And maybe some gold cord.  So, with an Idea in my head for all that gold, I went in search of the perfect sketch and came across the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge.


That big layer was just perfect for my Dasher stamp.  He always looks swell all decked out in gold embossing powder.


I used a couple of sheets from Jolly Holiday because they were just circles made of Cherry Cobbler and Very Vanilla.  I used a little bit of gold cardstock peeking out behind Dasher and then I rounded up some gold cord and twirled it around the biggest layers three times.  And since I think that embossing powder and the gold cord qualify as dressing up my card, I think I'll add this one to the Pals Paper Arts challenge of Puttin' on the Ritz.

Thanks for stopping by!
