Be a Lighthouse for Paper Players
Love you for Addicted to CAS #104

Adore you for Paper Players # 331

Hi Everyone.  Happy Sunday. 

It's the fabulous Nance's turn to host our Paper Players challenge this week and she has a great color challenge for us... oh... and... I'm obsessed with the photo she chose for the inspiration!

That pale robin's egg blue with the copper, pink and grey is a stunning - and very unexpected - color combo.  Fabulous :-)

I decided to go with a floral for this and had this idea that I could create pink and grey flowers and then use my copper Kuretake metallic watercolors to color in between them.  Ooooooopss..... I then found out that Copper wasn't one of the colors!  So, I had to change it up and use my Polychromos pencils, which, luckily, had a copper pencil.  It was harder work coloring with a pencil - but it is still quite pretty.  It's much prettier in hand though, I must admit.

Here's my card:

Ppcolors (1 of 1)

and... grrr... the sentiment looks much more golden than it really is!   But...I do love the new Altenew Adore You flowers and leaves colored in pink and grey.  I used my favorite Studio Katia rectangles for the sentiment layer.

I hope you will join us and play along this week.  If you are looking for some inspiration, you have to look no further than our fabulous design team:

On a personal note:

It was 45 degrees here today - crazy!   The chickadee's thought spring had arrived early and were singing up a storm.  It was also a good day to bring in all the Christmas decorations and prepare the front porch for spring.  Tomorrow we will be able to do a little clean up in the screened in porch - but we know it is going to be quite a while before we can sit there :-)

I'll be back later in the week.  In the meantime, warm hugs and prayers for those of you who need a little lift tonight.

What a classy card! Love your subtle background!


Love your pretty background and that sentiment.....wowza! A home run all round!


Such beautiful floral card, Jaydee! Your rich bloomed background is awesome, makes front panel pop.


Stunning card
Hope you and Lou had a wonderful Valentine's Day.
Enjoy the rest of the week .
It rained here all day long yesterday and believe it or, once the yard tries out, we will have to mow our yard. It's getting rather long in some places.
When I can't work outside; what is a person to do? Me, I canned up 11 - 1/2 pints of strawberry syrup. :}

Jaydee, this is gorgeous! I love the copper with those beautiful blooms! That die is fabulous! I don't think I have ever seen it. I love the copper sentiment and the soft stamping! We have been in the 70's in ATL. The trees are all blooming and the tulips and daffodils are all blooming. I noticed my azaleas had a few blooms today. It is way to early! I am afraid we will not have any Spring! I am thinking of you and sending you hugs! XXX

Jaydee, this is pure gorgeousness. I love the subtle stamping and the copper background. The flowers are so soft and pretty--just perfect for this color challenge! Thinking of you and wishing you a good week too! ((Hugs))


Jaydee what fun it is to see your creation using new Altenew goodies. The flowers are so pretty, I love the simple shapes. Love the half-tone sentiment too, a set that is on my wish list. Wishing you a good week :)


Gorgeous Jaydee! So soft and delicate....just beautiful.

Time to put all my Christmas away does feel like spring is right around the corner.

Have a great week!

Jaydee your card is so pretty! I love those flowers on the copper with the shaped stitched sentiment panel adding to the visual interest. 45 degrees? If that's not evidence of global warming, I don't know what is! Feel free to send some warmth this way - we are sub-zero this week!
