Paper Players Challenge 61 Jaydee's Sketch and a New Look!

Happy Sunday everyone!  Here we are with Paper Players Challenge 61, a sketch from Jaydee! I posted early for two reasons....

one the Hurricane coming towards Connecticut  and....
my new look, courtesy of Lesley!  Our fearless Paper Players leader has started a new venture and I was overdue for a new look!  I love it!!  

Here is this week's sketch!

 I received a few pre-order sets from the upcoming Holiday Mini, and used the set The Sounding Joy for my card.

I paired the image with the Mocha Morning DSP, love the non-traditional colors!  I stamped the star image in Crumb Cake on Very Vanilla, then added the Joy embossed in the new Cranberry Cobbler embossing powder.  I kept the card pretty simple, opting for an elegant look.     This new quilted satin ribbon is gorgeous!  I accented it with a simple pearl as well.

Here is a bonus card!  At first I was going for a traditional A2 size but it didn't quite work, so I didn't want to waste the cardbase and layers.  I stamped another image from the set on vellum and embossed in Cherry Cobbler.  I added simple pearls to accent the corners where the adhesive was (had not dried yet in the pic, sorry!)

Be sure to check out the entire team for another week of gorgeous samples!  

On a personal note, this is my last week on the Summer Design Team and I had a great time!  I have never been around such a group of fun, supporting ladies!  They really made me feel at home!  I will be doing their challenges for a long time to come and i encourage you to join in!
