Mixed Bunch for Paper Players #164

Hello there! Hope you are having a great day so far. The weather has finally cooled off here and it is starting to feel like Fall. Hooray! This week at the Paper Players, the lovely and talented Sandy has a fun sketch challenge for us. I accidentally set my post to go live at 7:00PM Sunday night, instead of 7:00AM Sunday morning. Yikes! I guess I was pretty tired when I was typing this up. Anyhoo, Sandy's sketch is pretty awesome, so I hope you will join us this week and play along.
I took a pretty literal interpretation of the sketch using the big, bold blossom from the Mixed Bunch stamp set and the patterns in the Gingham Garden DSP. I love the colors together, too. They are really cheery, don't you think? I popped up all of the layers on the card and added a couple pops of bling to finish it off. All of the supplies I used are listed at the end of the post.
Please join us over at the Paper Players The challenge is open through Friday, September 27th, 2013 at Noon (PDT). Stop by and say hello to the rest of the Design Team to see what they are sharing this week.

Before I go, I wanted to share a photo of the cutest puppy ever! She is our newest foster dog (our beautiful Violet left for her new home a couple weeks ago). This little bundle of Schnauzer cuteness is Sabrina. She is 3 months old and will be headed to her new home in Minnesota in the second week in October. She is absolutely adorable! Have a great day today! :)
