Paper Players Challenge #18-LeAnne's Theme Challenge

The beginning of the month brings a new Theme Challenge to the Paper Players Challenge Blog!  This week's challenge is brought to you by LeAnne and it a FABULOUSLY FUN challenge!!  She is challenging us to go Monochromatic with our colour choices.  Right away I knew I wanted to use Pacific Point, Marina Mist and Bashful Blue.

The Beginning
The start of my card came from the new Celebrations Designer Paper (117164) on pg 173 of the Big Stampin' Up Catalogue.  I just love the festive and upbeat colour pallete of the paper and so decided to pull out and dust off the Season of Joy Set (110384) on pg 33 that has lots of upbeat images in it.

The Middle
- stamp the snowflake image in Marina Mist on a 4 x5.25" piece of whsiper white paper
- use the Scallop Border Punch on a 1.5" strip of Pacific Point cardstock, adhere that piece behind a 2 x 4" piece of the blue polka dotted Celebrations DSP, then add a strip of Whisper White Satin Ribbon to the Designer Paper, wrapping the ribbon behind the paper and taping it down with regular tape.
-Cut a 2.25 x 3.25" rectangle in the Pacific Point and a 2 x 3" rectangle in Whisper White (stamp the tree image in Pacific Point on the Whisper White rectangle
-Put all the pieces together on a 4.25 x 5.5" Pacific Point Card Base

The End
-to add some bling, I punched out a snowflake using the Extra Large Snowflake Punch and added a little jewel to the centre of it from the new Basic Rhinestones (119246) pg 188.  You get a 150 of them in one pack!!!
-I also used the Large Oval Punch and the Scallop Oval Punch for my sentiment which was stamped in Pacific Point.

I hope you get the chance to come and join our challenge this week!  We are looking forward to seeing what you do with our Monochromatic Theme Challenge!

Thanks for stopping by!
