Nature Walk Returns!


Hi Stampers!  

I created this card for this week’s  PP51 ColorChallenge at The Paper Players.  As you can see, the colors are bold and bright and possibly not the normal colors I would have paired together for my "Vintage" or "Shabby" style, but that is what I love about weekly challenges!  

The colors definitely remind me of summer so I decided to use the returning set, Nature Walk :-).  If you did not have a chance to purchase this set when it was in the Occasions Mini, you will be able to after July 1st :-)
 
As usual, ThePaper Players Design Team has done a fabulous job and they have several guest designers for this summer – if you have a chance, check out their site (you will love all of the inspiration)!
 
This card was fairly simple to make- cut out a few Top Notes, emboss a panel from DSP and sand, stamp the images, color and spritz with markers and sponge.  Add the ribbon and brad to finish it off!  Quick and easy- if you have any questions, please let me know. 

Stamp Sets:  Nature Walk, Thoughts and Prayers
 Ink: Basic Black, Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight, SU! Markers- Melon Mambo and Wild Wasabi
Cardstock:  Whisper White, Wild Wasabi, Melon Mambo, retired DSP
Accessories:  Big Shot, Framed Tulips EF, Top Note Die, Sanding Block, Sponge Daubers, Color Spritzer Tool, 5/8” Daffodil Delight Satin Ribbon (soon to be retired), Antique Brad 

Thanks again for stopping by- I hope all of you are having a blessed week!
