Hey, hey...it's Sunday! Happy Mother's Day to all the momma's out there! This week at the Paper Players, the lovely and talented Ann Schach is our hostess, with a fabulous color combo to take for a creative spin.
ANY color combo that includes Poppy Parade is a winner in my book. Sadly, that color is retiring from the SU! catalog at the end of the month. I may, or may not, have bought an extra ink pad and 2 packs of "reserve" card stock, just because I LOVE that color so much! Ah, Poppy Parade, i will miss you so.... :(
For the layout of my card, I looked no further then one of my favorite sites for sketch inspiration: Stamping 411. Check it out!! :)
I busted out my Floral Fusion and Swirly Scribbles (retiring soon!) dies...simply because I haven't used them in a while. (Although I accidentally used the wrong color blue card stock on the flowers the first time I made my card...sigh) Speaking of unused items...I have been neglecting the Happiest Birthday Wishes (Hostess) stamp set, so wanted to show it some love before it retires. The Designer Series Papers ARE new, however! The Daffodil Delight pattern is from the Summer Smooches DSP and the Baja Breeze pattern is from the Floral District DSP. Both are coming soon in the new SU! catty on June 1st! All of the supplies I used are listed at the end of this post.
A quick shot of the inside of the card, that coordinates simply with the front:
I hope you will join us this week over at the Paper Players! The challenge closes on Friday, May 18th at 12 Noon (PST). Please stop by and visit the rest of the gals on the Design Team to see their colorful creations:
