Hello there! It's Sunday and that means it is time for another fun challenge over at the Paper Players! This week, Nance is our hostess and she has a CAS (Clean and Simple) challenge showcasing buttons!
I decided to break out the brand-new Bright Blossoms stamp set and Summer Smooches DSP from Stampin' Up! Both of these products will be featured in the new catalog later this year, and are not available to order yet. This is a little sneaky peek. The exciting news is...you can be one of the first to order it starting April 1st. Shoot me an email for more details! I love, love, LOVE this paper and the fabulous color combo of Rich Razzleberry, Daffodil Delight, Tangerine Tango, Tempting Turquoise, Real Red, Island Indigo and Lucky Limeade. It is so bright and cheerful! I dressed up the stamped image with a few Bitty Buttons backed with some more of this pretty paper, punched with the circle and flower shapes from the Bitty Punch Pack.I just felt like those flowers needed a little bit more pizazz, so I dressed them up with a sparkly rhinestone center...because, let's face it, everything is better with some sparkle! I also added a bow using the new Daffodil Delight Seam Binding. (also coming soon!) The sentiment is from the You're a Gem stamp set and it just seemed fitting for these bejeweled blossoms. I know there are quite a few layers on this card but it was CAS for me, in the sense that it was a fairly quick card to create. I let the punches do a lot of the work. That's always a good thing, right? All of the supplies I used are listed at the end of the post.
A quick shot of the inside, ready for a hand-penned thank you note:

The Paper Players Design TeamBefore I go, I wanted to share a photo of one of my favorite deer from our backyard. This pretty doe visits regularly. She's not scared of my camera at all. I'm not sure if that is a good thing, or not.
Thanks for stopping by today! :)
