Paper Players Sketch Challenge #84 - from LeAnne
Here is the card I made to enter in The Paper Players Sketch Challenge #84 - from LeAnne. I really love the element of 3 on this sketch. I kept it monochromatic - which is a personal challenge for me as I honestly don't think I have done this before (I always seem to feel I need to add a second or third color to complete the card), but I do really like the way it turned out. Of course it helps that Melon Mambo is one of my favorite pinks (so very versatile). Great sketch LeAnne - thanks for the opportunity to play with the Players!
Aren't the little hands just absolutely precious (there are some darling little feet prints too in this set)? I absolutely fell in love with this stamp set as soon as I saw it. If you scroll down to my earlier post from today you will see another sentiment and the feet that are also part of this set.
I used my Melon Mambo Stampin Write Marker to ink up individual words from a couple different sentiments in this set and then used my Large oval punch to create the 3 elements/accents for this card.
For a tiny touch of pink bling I used the darling pink rhinestones (2mm size) that are exclusive to the Blossom Builders kit (#125410) available in the Occassions Mini Catalog (until April 30th). Soon I will be sharing some samples that I am making using the wonderful textured die-cut flowers from this set.
Thanks for stopping by - I hope you have seen something that inspires you!
