The Paper Players Sketch



The inspiration for my card today came from The Paper Players sketch by the talented Nance!  The perfect sketch for a quick card that I needed to give tomorrow.  This was my starting point ...



and this is my ending point ...

Stamps:  Apple Blossoms
Paper:  Brocade Blue, Riding Hood Red, White
DSP:  Brocade Blue, Night of Navy
Ink:  Brocade Blue, Riding Hood Red, Always Artichoke marker
Accessories:  spritzer, word window and modern label punch, Nestabilites circle and big scallop circle dies, pearls, sponge, dimensionals
All products are Stampin' Up unless otherwise noted.

It is a cold rainy day here so I could not get the best lighting for my picture.  On top of that, my camera battery was about to die.  I had to go with what I had because I really wanted to upload this card today.  The Paper Players challenge ends at midnight tonight.  I was determined to get it posted on time this week!  :)  

Thanks for stopping by and ...

Have a great weekend,

Pam~

This is so very pretty, pam...great colors and I love your speckles.

We just came in from handing out candy to the trick or treaters. We treated about 300 and they're still out there having fun. We ran out of candy and that was it. Did you have a lot of trick or treaters?
