My summer stint on the Design Team at the Paper Players is going by so quickly! I have to say, the ladies on the team have really motivated me to step up my game! They are so so talented and nice!! So here is Sketch Challenge 57, by Nance.
I did not go to Convention this year but have seen lots of beautiful sample cards that were shown there. One of my favorites was my inspiration for this weeks card, using the new HUGE stamp called Sweet Floral.
I stamped the En Francais background stamp in Soft Suede on Whisper White. Then, I clear embossed Sweet Floral over it. Then...sponged Rose Red, Melon Mambo, River Rock, Soft Suede and Old Olive over the image. I rubbed the ink off the clear embossed with a paper towel and..there you go! These also happen to be this week's Color Throwdown Colors (152).
The bottom of the image is punched with the Decorative Label punch, side by side. I finished it off with Rose Red seam binding, an Antique brad and a few stamps from the Tiny Tags set. Last, but not least, I embossed the background with the Vintage Wallpaper folder.
Let me tell you, the samples from the Design Team this week are beautiful (as always!) Can't wait to see what you all come up with! Stop by the other Design Team members blogs for their samples!
