It's Sunday and time for another challenge at the Paper Players. This week is a really special week for us as we celebrate 100 challenges with a special Blog Hop. 100 challenges already! Can you believe that? Wow!
I started playing with the Paper Players shortly after I started my blog with Challenge #15...was asked to be a Guest Designer at Challenge #23 ...and was asked to be a permanent member of the team starting with Challenge #38. I am so happy to be a part of this team and love working with these amazing ladies, every week. They make creating fun and I am so proud to call them friends! :)
I decided to recreate a card with LeAnne's awesome sketch from Challenge #60 for this one. I love things in "threes" and this sketch has always remained in my "favorites folder". Here are all of the past color and sketch challenges, for reference. You can use ANY past challenge (EXCEPT "Anything Goes" challenges) for inspiration, just make sure to list it in your blog post.
HERE is the link to my blog post for the pumpkin card that I made for the original challenge,
And here is my BRAND NEW card with same sketch and some new stampin' goodies:
I have been itching to break into the new In-Colors, especially Summer Starfruit. I was inspired by the *new* Birds of a Feather DSP that I just landed on my doorstep with my order last week. My color combo is Island Indigo, Summer Starfruit, Raspberry Ripple and Whisper White. For this card, I dressed up the circles with some bejeweled butterflies and added a fun banner (heat embossed) sentiment. Of course, I added some bits of bling as a finishing touch.
Here is a shot of the decorated inside of the card, with a sassy birthday greeting:
