Paper Players #67 - Jaydee's Fall Colors

Hello and Happy Sunday to you! This week at The Paper Players, the lovely and talented Jaydee has created a fab Fall color combo to get inspired for the season. 
Although, just yesterday, I mentioned how I struggle with the Cajun Craze color. I decided to make amends for this challenge and get my inner- "Cajun Crazy" ON! Lol! I was inspired by the sketch over at Twisted Sketches. This layout was so unique, I really wanted to give it a go! 
This card was also very inspired by my fellow Paper Player pal, Nance Leedy.  I used the Floral Fusion Sizzix Die to create the layered flowers and also layered a stamped image behind the sentiment, which is something that Nance does regularly for that extra "wow"-factor to her cards. I love the look! Thanks Nance, you already know I am a huge fan of yours...but this just confirms it! ;)
I used some retired Autumn Spice DSP on this one (as it was already sitting on my desk) because it was a perfect fit for the color combo. I sponged some Cajun Craze ink around all of the edges for some added pop, along with a layer of textured card stock. This card is pretty "bulky", but that's ok. Chunky cards may cost a little more to mail, but they are REALLY fun to open! Ha ha! 


Here is quick shot of the decorated inside of the card: 
Please stop by and visit the Paper Players Design Team to see what the gals have created with these fabulous colors. Their cards are awesome, as always! We sure hope you will play along this week with YOUR creation, too!

  3. Stunning card, AM! I visit Ann and added vellum to my order list, then come here and decide I need that floral fusion die. I'm afraid to visit any of the others today! :) This is really gorgeous. I'm going to go dig out my Autumn Spice paper. I miss it and it was my favorite until Spice Cake came along!
