Hello and Happy Sunday to you! What a crazy, busy week I had last week...sheesh! I was super excited to finally get some time to create a card, for the new challenge at the The Paper Players. LeAnne is our fabulous host this week and she has challenged us to a "Thank You" theme. We are also excited to share creations from our new Summer DT members: Lauri Ingram & Sandra Azzopardi and our June Guest Designer: Cindy Beach. SO excited to work with these lovely ladies!For my card, I decided to use my Punch Potpourri (hostess, level 1) stamp set and the coordinating Butterfly punch, two items that have been sitting unused in my stamp room for entirely too long. I also used the new Paisley Petals DSP that is coming out in the new SU! catalog, which releases July 1st. The colors in this paper are gorgeous and any chance to use some Cherry Cobbler is always a good thing. I decided to layer my butterflies and pop them up to give some extra dimension. The middle layer is light-weight vellum. I really need to use vellum more often. In hindsight, I think I should have spritzed the vellum layer with shimmmer spray....hmmm! For a complete list of supplies used, please see the end of this post.
Here is the finished inside of the card, ready for a hand-written thank you note:
I also wanted to share a photo from the awesome day my hubby and I spent at the lake, yesterday. We had a party with some wonderful friends and even though it was ridiculously HOT, we couldn't have asked for a better day. We enjoyed fun in the sun, plenty of Texas BBQ and LOTS of laughter. Although, my skin has somewhat of a Cherry Cobbler tone to it right now, as I did not use enough sunscreen. Eeek! :)
Thanks so much for stopping by! Please pay a visit to the The Paper Players and check out what the rest of the Design Team have whipped up this week. We sure hope you will play along with YOUR "Kind Thanks" project.
