Paper Players 80 and Cards & Things 106

Thursday, February 2, 2012

Tuesday night I sat down in my stamp room and started to put together a card for The Paper Players sketch challenge.  But somehow everything got all balled up (as my grandmother would say).


First, my little flower accent had to go on the bottom left of the square layer rather than the top left because of the layout of the Dream Big sentiment.  Speaking of that sentiment, just before I was ready to lay down the double-sided tape and afix these layers for all eternity, I realized that the sentiment is actually supposed to go on the bottom!  So I had to cut down the dsp layer to accommodate something.  I ended up choosing the "dreams" sentiment from Fabulous Phrases because it kind of, sort of makes a nice thing to say:  "dream big dreams." Sheesh!

The colors are courtesy of the latest Cards & Things challenge.

Thanks for stopping by!

Love how this turned out! The bit of green is a wonderful accent! I might have liked it better done in Giants Blue though :)

Jen, it's not possible for you to make a bad card! They are always great--even if it's not how you pictured it! Love these colors and the little circles that match the dsp are such a cute touch! Thank you for playing along with us at the Paper Players!

What is this talk of your card getting all bailed up? Lol! Jen, this is crisp, clean and has your awesome style written all over it! Love the paper piercing around the main image, too. Thanks so much for joining us this week at the Paper Players! :)
