Life Doesn't Have to be Perfect Card


Hello! I hope you're having a lovely weekend. Today is the start of a color challenge at The Paper Players hosted by the amazing Ann. There are a lot of different ways to use the colors. Pumpkins and fall will work well but I decided to go floral. My card is pretty simple with minimal layering. The patterned paper from the All Abloom and Moonlight paper stacks do all the heavy lifting and the flower adds a pop of Tangelo Twist. Using the Bird Builder punch I added the leaves to accent the flower (I almost used a Tangelo Twist bird but decided against it). This sentiment from the Perfect Pennants stamp set is very fitting and pretty much summarizes my life last week. The final touch was adding the gold sequins for a little pizzazz.

Again, the design team has come up with some wonderful inspiration (click here)! We would love for you to join us this week and remember all paper crafting products are welcome. You have until NOON (PST) on Friday, October 17, 2014 to add your card to the gallery. I can't wait to see how you use the colors. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day!

Here are the colors:
