Hello Friend, PP346

Hi friends! It's Sunday and that means time for a new challenge at The Paper Players! This week the wonderful and talented Laurie is our hostess with a sketch challenge. I love this sketch and had an idea right away.

I've been trying to use my stencils a little more often, and stenciled some subtle bricks for my background. I did a little piercing on the square layer, something I haven't done in ages. A few die cut flowers and a sentiment and that's all there is to it! 

Products Used:
Stamp Sets: Painted Flowers, Floral Shadow, Beautiful Lady (Altenew)
Card Stock: Whisper White, Pear Pizzazz (Stampin' Up)
Ink Pads: Frayed Leaft. Forest Glades, Frosty Pink, Coral Berry (Altenew)
Tools: Big Shot, Painted Flowers Die (Altenew), Piercing Essentials, Piercing Tool, Sponge Dauber (Stampin' Up), English Brick Wall Stencil (My Favorite Things)

I'll be taking a little bloggy break for the next few weeks but I'll be back soon!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Please leave a comment, and then head over to visit the rest of the Design Team at The Paper Players. We hope you'll play along with our challenge this week, too! 

Inky hugs :)

  4. Beautiful Sandy! I am loving your use of stencils - they make such subtle yet effective backgrounds. And those flowers are gorgeous!

  5. I just used this stamp set (Painted Flowers) for the first time and I love how my card came out. Your's is just beautiful as well. I'm anxious to try it in other colors as well.

  6. This is really pretty, Sandy. I love the color combination and the flowers, but I really like that brick wall stencil. I have never even used a stencil once, I think I need to try! Crystal

  7. Goooooooorgeous! LOVE those florals and the stencilled bricks just set them off perfectly!

  9. This is so beautiful, Sandy! I love the stenciled background and those flowers are stunning! Hope you are having a great week, My Friend! XX

  10. Sandy, this is gorgeous. I love the subtle brick pattern - I need this stencil as the bricks are thinner than the ones on my stencil :-) The flowers are beautiful. Great take on the sketch, my friend and we will miss you whilst you take a break

  11. Love your stenciled background. Such a gorgeous card!
