The Paper Players #129 & DD#36

Hello my friends.

I'm so happy to share with you that my card, see HERE, was selected as one of the Cut Above winners over at The Paper Players...Thank you, Nance!
Today, I created another card combining 2 card challenges: The Paper Players #129 & Dynamic Duos #36:



My card:



I love making Clean and Simple Cards because they are super fast to make!!  The base is Whisper White, following with Real Red cardstock.  Again, I made my own background paper by photocopying the page from a dictionary that has the definition word "Love" - it's in the top left-hand corner.  The image is from SU! Greetings Card Kids, colored with Copic Markers.  The sentiment is from IBS Be Mine Stamp Set.  To add balance to the card, I added Red Baker's Twine and 2 red rhinestones.

Thanks so much for stopping by,

  8. Congrats on getting A Cut Above at Paper Players! This Valentine is super cute. I like your interpretation of the sketch. I too make my own dictionary paper! I first thought of it at Christmas, using the definition of 'Christmas tree' with an image of a tree. What a way to have an endless supply of patterned paper, eh?
