Whale of a Time for Paper Players #497
Timeless Tropical for Just Us Girls

Timeless Tropical for Atlantic Hearts Sketches #374

Happy Sunday - again!  If you are looking for my Paper Players card, you can find it here.  For the great sketch across at Atlantic Hearts  I used some retired DSP and stamped and colored the hibiscus flower and leaves from the Stampin' Up! Timeless Tropical set.  Here's the sketch:

I used two pieces of matching DSP 0ne with stripes and the other with pineapples.  For the third piece, I used a piece of So Saffron card stock.  I stamped and colored the flower and leaves with Copic markers and did very little for shading as I wanted to just do some quick coloring.  I added the flower and leaves and stamped the sentiment onto the striped DSP and then decided I needed a sun.  I found the perfect one in the June My Paper Pumpkin kit.  I added that with So Saffron ink and my card was ready.

Here's a closeup of the different papers:

And here is my full card:

I love this sentiment - and it is also from the June My Paper Pumpkin kit.  This card will be going off with others to the seniors in nursing homes and I hope it brightens someone's day!

You can find my nature pics for today in my Paper Players post - but here's another one :-) This little Downy woodpecker was determined to get the last dregs of suet from the feeder:

I'll be back tomorrow with another card.  In the meantime, warm hugs and prayers for those of you who need a little lift tonight.
