Hello there! It's time for a new challenge over at the Paper Players! This week, Nance is our hostess with a fabulous color combo. I fell in love with these colors as soon as she shared the inspiration photo with us. I personally LOVE shopping for fun accessories. Handbags, shoes...but especially jewelry! I had a lot of fun with this challenge, which really helped me get out of the stamping rut I have been in lately. Thanks, Nance! :)
While perusing Facebook yesterday morning, I came upon the photo below on the Better Homes and Gardens page. Something about the layout inspired me and I thought it might make a cool card design. Love all the circles! Those colors are really pretty together, too. Hmm, a idea for a different project, maybe?
This is not my usual style and the "random" placement was kind of tough for me to get comfortable with. But once I overcame that (with a little encouragement from my friend and fellow Paper Player Ann) it came together quickly. I added a LOT of gold accents between the Foil Paper, Glimmer Paper, Sequins and Smooch Spritz on the butterfly. I don't tend to use gold very often, so I wanted to make it count. Haha! I also listed all of the supplies used at the end of the post. I really like how this one came out and I hope you do as well.
Please join us over at the Paper Players! The challenge is open through Friday, February 14th, 2014 at Noon (PDT). Stop by and say hello to the rest of the Design Team to see what they are sharing this week. Have a great day!

Just wanted to share a photo of Miss Gidget before I go. I don't think I have mentioned yet that we officially adopted her. Yes, it's true. She got very sick while we were fostering her and her adopters ended up backing out. After nursing her back to health (which was a long and often scary road), the bond was way too strong and we were not able to let her go. The sassy diva is now home! :)
