Paper Players Colour Challenge, Viva la Verve and 4 Crafty Chicks

Happy Easter! It is time for another Paper Players Challenge! I am having the family over for turkey-lurkey today, so excited to have everyone over to the house. We have not all been together since my dad was in the hospital, so I am happy that we can get together and celebrate being healthy and being a family!

Stamps: He is Risen (Stampin' Up)
Paper: Bazzill Basics Paper (Vintage Marketplace), American Crafts (Green Grid Paper), Whisper White, Not Quite Navy, Certainly Celery
Inks: Copics and Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, Not Quite Navy for the sentiment
Extras: Lace Ribbon, Oval Punches (SU!), Oval Nestabilities

This week I needed a good sketch for the stamp I had in mind.  I went looking and found this beautiful sketch over at Splitcoast Stampers. It is a Verve sketch challenge and I absolutely loved that could use lots of designer paper and layers! Yum!  I inked up a new Stampin' Up set called "He is Risen". The floral image was the main reason for the purchase but the sentiments are also lovely. The flower is inked in Memento Ink and coloured with my Copics. I also wanted to play along with the gals over at 4 Crafty Chicks, they have a theme challenge to do with Flowers. This is my first time playing with them! Hi ladies!

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!
