Feathered Friends PP232, SSCS255 & SSS


Greetings, Friends! This week at The Paper Players the talented Joanne James is hostess, and she has selected "Clean and Simple Feathered Friends" as the challenge this week. What fun! I love birds and have lots of bird stamps. Isn't that badge adorable, too? Nance continues to impress us week after week with her amazing challenge badges.


Well, I got the Feathered Friends part of this challenge well enough but the Clean and Simple part was a total fly-by on me. LOL, pun intended! I was planning on adding some embossed clouds and some sponging and some sequins but I came to a screeching halt when I realized this was supposed to be a CAS card. I hope I didn't overdo it, Joanne! I used a new Lawn Fawn stamp set for the first time, Gnome Sweet Gnome, and the sunshine image from Hello Sunshine.


I used the layout from the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge. I'm also playing along with the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, which is "All Creatures Great and Small".


Lawn Fawn:
Stamp Sets: Gnome Sweet Gnome, Hello Sunshine
Patterned Paper: Snow Day
Tools: Stitched Rectangle, Gnome Sweet Gnome, Hello Sunshine and Sitched Hillside Border Lawn Cuts

Stampin' Up:
Card Stock: Whisper White
Ink Pads: Memento Tuxedo Black, Crushed Curry
Blendability Markers: Bermuda Bay, Smoky Slate and Cherry Cobbler Collections
Tools: Big Shot
