Sweet 16 -- PP3357

August 13, 2017

It's Sunday and time for a new challenge at The Paper Players.  

The sensational Sandy is our hostess this week!  Her color challenge is so pretty!  I was a little stumped at first, but then I ended up having several ideas with the palette. Have fun and we can't wait to see how you use these colors! 

My card is created on a white card base.  I used the MFT Bold Stripes Die to create the fun frame and layers.  I used Bermuda Bay and Calypso Coral stripes.  A Pear Pizzazz starburst frame was created around the white sunburst circle and adhered on top of the bold stripes frame.   I cut the "16" from Bermuda Bay using Stampin' Up!  Large Number Framelit dies.  I used the MFT Fall Florals  stamp set to create the flowers and the leaves.  Calypso Coral and Bermuda Bay ink was used on the flowers and Pear Pizzazz was used on the leaves.  The matching dies were used to cut out all the pieces.  Enamel dots were used in the center of each flower.  The word "sweet" is cut three times in Calypso Coral using the Tayolred Expressions die and Glossy Accents was added to create lots of shine.  A little Bermuda Bay heart was placed in the script.  This card was created for my niece, Olivia.  She turned 16 this week.
