Paper Players 43

Sunday, April 17, 2011

This week Jaydee's got a really awesome clean and simple sketch challenge at the Paper Players for you to try.

It's no surprise that I'm a huge fan of CAS cards.  There's something about all that white space (even if it isn't white) that really speaks to me.  And with a great sketch like this one, you can really make it talk with color (like I think I did on my card) or you can showcase a really fabulous stamp.

I also liked the colors this week at the Color Throwdown.  The yellow and the teal looked very pretty together.  I don't have any Summer Sun anymore so I substituted Daffodil Delight.  I seem to be using that quite a bit lately.  It must be a subconscious desire to finally have spring make an appearance and stick around a bit!

Well I'm off to Long Island to visit my niece for a few days.  Hopefully the weather  will cooperate.  I've already told her I'm not leaving until we go to the Canal Cafe and have their oh-so-delicious lobster roll!

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to head on over to the Paper Players and give this sketch challenge a try.  The design team has some amazing creations to inspire you!

Jen, this card is drop dead gorgeous. I love the way you added the scalloped border with the paper piercing at the top of it. the little button with the sentiment is just perfect for the image.
Really, really fabulous!
