The Paper Players Challenge #60

Hey Everyone

My card this evening is for The Paper Players Challenge.  The challenge is to make a CAS card from the sketch below.  I have to literally hold back my hand to stop myself from layering and stamping galore on CAS challenges.  I initially had a big bow on the side of the card but I removed it and gathered the ribbon instead.  It wasn’t until just now that I just realised that I’ve put the sentiment on the top when it should’ve been on the bottom! – oh well, that will teach me for not taking my laptop into my craft room.

I’ve stamped the baubles on to the main panel, then stamped them again on to a scrap piece and cut out the centre with the 1inch circle punch to raise them up on the original panel.

This card was chosen as A Cut Above at The Paper Players Challenge.

Thanks for taking a look.
