Paper Players #38 ~ Colour Challenge from Ann

It is time for another Paper Player Challenge!  This week Design Team Member Ann Schach has chosen a beautiful Colour Combo for us to try!!!  I am all out of Very Vanilla so I used Whisper White and Crumb Cake as my neutrals.

Creating this card:
  • I heat embossed the flower in white on the Blushing Bride Cardstock.  I wanted the colour to be bold and clean
  • Then I cut out the flower and popped it up on my card
  • I used the Label Punch to create a little hat for my oval punched sentiment 
Hop on over to the Paper Players Challenge Blog to play along this week!
