Paper Players #93, Play Date Cafe, and I Spy Sketches

So I am having an eye issue...my right eye is blurry and has some bumps on it. Bleck! I have been resting it this weekend! Thank you to my Paper Players team for being so wonderful!



This week at the Paper Players Challenge, I am the hostess and I have a TIC TAC TOE thang going on! Basically choose any three in a row...across, down, diagonally...I left the center choice up to you, like in Bingo! Sheesh I am mixing up my games here, but you get the drift! This is an Anything Goes Challenge but with the parameters in the Tic Tac Toe box!  I hope you will join in the fun!  I chose the Square Card, Your Choice (Rock and Roll technique for my Butterfly) and Spring.
{Supplies}
Stamps: Summer Solstice, SAB Elementary Elegance Set, En Francais
Inks: Perfect Plum, Concord Crush, Confetti White and So Saffron
Papers: Whisper White, Perfect Plum, DSP scrap from my stash
Tools: Swiss Dots embossing folder, Oval Nesties, Big Shot, Perfect Plum Ribbon, Pearls 
***Technique: I Rock and Rolled the Butterfly in So Saffron and Perfect Plum

For my card, I used the Colours from the Playdate Cafe and the Sketch from I Spy Sketches!  



We hope that you will join the Paper Players Challenge this week!  Please be sure to visit the other DT Members to see their wonderful creations! This is also our last week with Shirley our Guest Designer! Thank you Shirley for your wonderful work and for playing with us!!!

  8. Love the perfect plum and yellow combo--so Spring! Hope your eye is better. Mine have been tearing a lot from all the pollen in the air, so I hope that's all that's wrong with yours.
