Hellooo there stampers! Hope you are having an awesome day out there. I wanted to share my card for this week's challenge over at the Paper Players! This week, Lesley is our hostess and she has a fab color trio to try.
I had a wedding card to make for our cousin and for some reason these colors seemed like they would be an elegant mix for the occasion. I got the inspiration for my layout from the sketch over at the Create with Connie and Mary challenge. They always have such great sketch ideas! :)
Overall, the card is pretty simple, just a lot of layers...I love layers! Haha! I added some bling and Glimmer Brads to dress things up along with a pretty satin bow. The framed sentiment from the Layered Labels stamp set was heat embossed, too. I love that there are matching die cuts for that set in the Apothecary Accents Framelits dies. So easy! The scallop trim punched border, under the die cut sentiment, was added after the card was put together. Gotta love when you almost rip a card apart to add an element. *sigh* But I love the added pop it gave the card and I hope the happy couple loves the card, too.
I hope you will join us over at the Paper Players this week and play along! Stop by and visit the rest of the gals on the Design Team to say hello and see what they whipped up with the colors. The challenge closes on Friday, September 14th at Noon (PDT).

One more thing, before I sign off...how about a cute kitten photo to make you say "awww"? Little Miss Abby (our foster kitty) has been doing very well, although I kind of forgot how much work little kittens can be. But she's so stinkin' cute, we really don't mind too much.
Have a HAPPY day! :)
