The Paper Players Challenge # 55

Good afternoon everyone!  Today I made a card for The Paper Players Challenge #55.  It's a color challenge using Poppy Parade, Crumb Cake, Basic Gray, and Baja Breeze.   The easy part was picking a stamp set to use - Strength and Hope.  But I had a little bit of trouble trying to use both Crumb Cake and Basic Gray together so I chose to use Baja Breeze and Crumb Cake as my focal colors and Basic Gray was used on the background stamp underneath the Poppy Parade butterfly, which of course I had to pop off the page with dimensionals!  I love how it turned out! What do you think? 

Card Ingredients:

CS: Baja Breeze, Crumb Cake, Whisper White
Ink:  Baja Breeze, Crumb Cake, Basic Gray, Poppy Parade
Stamp Set:  Strength and Hope
Accessories:  basic pearls, sponges, dimensionals, mono adhesive, paper snips, Stamp-a-ma-jig

If you'd like to play along with The Paper Players, there's still time to create your own project and upload it to their website.   The link will close on Friday, July 22nd at midnight.  As a side note, if you purchase the stamp set, Strength and Hope (Wood Mount # 118100), from Stampin' Up's Summer Mini catalog, Stampin' Up! will donate $2 to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation.  The campaign ends August 31st.  Click here to order from my website 24/7.

Have a great Sunday!
