Easter Blessings and Paper Daisies for The Paper Players

Greetings, Stampers! For those of you who are celebrating the holiday today, Happy Easter! It's also time for another Paper Players Challenge, and it's a fun one this week: Tic Tac Toe! I went straight across the top row for my project: Spring, Yellow and Green, and Pearls. I thought it was a great opportunity to wish you all a blessed day, so this card is from me to you!

OK, so I went a little Big Shot crazy on this one, LOL! When I created it, I'd been going through Big Shot withdrawal for a while so I just started die cutting and embossing everything in sight! I really like the layers of texture and mix of shapes. Most of all, though, I love the Paper Daisies. You can use them alone, layer them, or dye them whatever color you like. You'll be seeing more of them!

This is beautiful, Sandy! So soft and pretty and full of texture. I go Big Shot crazy all of the time too. Now that would be a hard challenge -- don't use the Big Shot. Yikes!
