Petal Parade for The Paper Players

Happy Sunday, everyone! This week at The Paper Players, the amazing Ann Schach has an terrific sketch for us to play along with! I love it! 

I had lots of fun using new products from the upcoming Sale-A-Bration Catalog. Coordinating products make it so easy to create a fabulous card. I'm in love with the sweet colors, too. Pistachio Pudding and Crisp Cantaloupe are my two favorite new colors.

Ann also challenged us to tuck a little something inside so, surprise! Attached to my tag, which is the perfect size I might add, is a gift card! I have to rememeber this gift card-card when the holidays roll around again!

I used the new Petal Parade Stamp Set combined with sentiments from an oldie but goodie, My Friend. Once again my buddy the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig came to my rescue for perfect placement.

Brads and Candy Dots would have been lost on this busy paper, but these fun cork stickers were perfect. I didn't think I would know what to with them, but as it turns out everywhere I put them they look cute! 

The tag was made with the new Scalloped Tag Topper Punch, and I adorned it with Twine from Sweet Sorbet Accessory Pack. What a fun card this was to make! Thanks for a great sketch, Ann!

Great card Sandy! Love the SAB colours and great inspiration for the cork elements - I've yet to use mine on a card.

What a fabulous card, Sandy! I love how you've featured so many SAB products--especially the way you've used the cork embellies!! Love the gift card/tag idea and your stamping on the main panel is fantastic. All 'round FAB card, my friend!

Sandy, I love this and I love that you made it into a gift card holder. The bold sentiment is perfect with the DSP. Fabulous card, my friend
