Lots of Layers for Paper Players #101

Hey there! It's Sunday and that means it is time for another challenge at the Paper Players! This week, Lesley is our hostess with this awesome sketch. This is a cool design...I had fun with it. I hope you will play along, too.

The color combo came straight from the SU! Color Coach. If the Color Coach says it's a good match, then it is. It's like the "Godfather" of crafting tools. Haha! I actually attempted to use as many new products as I could on this card. It's kind of ridiculous.I love a card with lots of layers and his one is chock full of them! 
I am absolutely loving the new In-Colors...especially Summer Starfruit, which I wasn't so sure about, at first. The main image was punched (...and punched...and punched) from the Quint-Essential Flower image. I love stamps that coordinate with punches and this one happens to match up with 5 punches. Pretty fabulous, right? I also used a cool new tool called the Essentials Paper-Piercing Pack, to add those paper-pierced elements around the circle, This is seriously an awesome has templates to punch around a variety of shapes. That has to be one of my favorite items from the new catty, for sure! The complete supply list is featured at the end of this post.

I realized after I put this card together that I added the sentiment to the opposite side of the sketch. Ack!! 
The inside of the card was dressed up with some plain card stock and a little DSP to add a personalized note. Instead of sharing that boring photo, I thought I would share a shot of my sweet Maine Coon kitty, Benjamin Maxwell. He likes to "supervise" me when I am in my craft room. Here he is on resting on the storage bins under the window, in my craft room. He's a BIG ol' mess! (Rita, I made him pose just for you!)  
Be sure to visit the rest of the DT to see what they created for the challenge this week over at the Paper Players. Please join us! The challenge closes on Friday, June 29th at Noon. Hope to see you there! :)
