the paper players - sketch challenge (new products sneak peek!)

This week at the Paper Players Ann has created a fun sketch for us! You are free to make it as clean and simple as you would like or make it as complex as you want it to be!

As is mostly my style, I decided to stick with clean and simple. And, although this sketch was a bit tough for me to come up with something I liked, I am pleased with how it all came together in the end. As you can tell, I went outside the box (literally) and chose to place the sentiment on the side of the card instead of using a punch to contain it as shown in the sketch above.

I just love all of the fun, happy colors in this card! Do you recognize the stamp set? What about the designer series paper? It's a sneak peek of an upcoming promotion beginning in April. The stamp set is called Bright Blossoms and the paper is called Summer Smooches. There are more fun sneak peeks coming up and will soon be available to purchase beginning April 1st!

Stamp Set: Bright Blossoms, Perfect Words
Whisper White, Daffodil Delight, Tangerine Tango, Island Indigo, Lucky Limeade, Summer Smooches DSP
Ink: markers - Lucky Limeade, Island Indigo, Tangerine Tango, Daffodil Delight, Rich Razzleberry, Tempting Turquoise, Real Red
Accessories: Dimensionals, Island Indigo 3/8" Ruffled ribbon, 1/8" Daffodil Delight Taffeta ribbon, Rhinestone Accents

Tools: Scallop Trim Border punch

I hope you will come on by the Paper Players to check out the great inspiration from the design team and to join in the fun! This challenge will end on Friday, March 30 at noon (PST).

Awesome card, Heidi. I played with this paper for this challenge too. I haven't used the stamp set yet, but I'm happy for this bit of inspiration that you've provided! Thanks.
I love the way you've place the flowers in the squares - and that sentiment is fun, fun, fun.
