Moving Forward for The Paper Players

Greetings, Stampers! It's time to play along with another challenge from The Paper Players! This week we have a color challenge by Anne-Marie. As soon as I saw these colors, I thought they would be perfect for a birthday card for a little boy. My nephew's birthday is right around the corner and this card will be for him.

I also knew which stamp set I would use right away, Moving Forward. The little sailboat looks perfect in these colors. I used all three challenge colors in Designer Paper from the Brights and Neutrals Stacks. The Large Scallop Edgelit was perfect for cutting the waves.

Don't you just love those cute embossed clouds in the background? They were made using a new Embossing Folder from Stampin' Up called Cloudy Day. Except in my case it's a sunny day!
Stampin' Up Products Used:
Stamp Sets: Moving Forward
Card Stock: Whisper White, Pacific Point, Basic Gray
Designer Series Paper: Brights and Neutrals Stack
Ink Pads: Pacific Point, Daffodil Delight
Tools: Big Shot, Large Scallop Edgelit, Cloudy Day Embossing Folder, 1 3/8" Circle and Word Window Punches

With each purchase of the Moving Forward Stamp Set, Stampin' Up will donate $3 to Ronald MacDonald House Charities, which helps support families of children with serious illnesses. 

Happy Stamping!

What a great card, Sandy! I'm sure your nephew will love it. I love all of the polka dots and your waves make for such a great scene.

Sandy, I love the reverse scallop waves and the fabulous bright sun. I had never thought to add that to this little vignette, but it's perfect and the polka dots tie the top of the card to the bottom of the card! Love it
