Find Beauty for The Paper Players

 Good morning on this Sunday Sunday September 11.  I hope everything is going well with you today! I am so glad you're here to join in for The Paper Players Challenge #608. Joanne has a wonderful group of colors to choose from for your projects! 

I pulled out some of my Stampin' Up! card stock and made my decision to feature dies and flowers using the MFT stamps Flower Bouquet Dynamics. 

These can be arranged in so many ways and I love that they have some cuts that allow the individual blooms to flex for some dimension. 

I used Old Olive, Mint Macaron, Blackberry Bliss, and Daffodil Delight card stocks. The basket (from The Greetery) is lined with a soft Petal Pink pattern from Stampin' Up!'s Textured Chic Specialty Designer Paper. The crosshatch die (Stampin' Up! Chic Dies)  is one of my favorites to provide a textured backdrop. The sentiment was stamped using Blackberry Bliss Ink. I love the contrast this color gives! It's a nice alternative to black.

That's it for me today, I hope that you will be inspired to play along!

 Be yourself

          Have delight in your craft 

               Make something beautiful!

What a beautiful posy of flowers Cindy; I love all of the textural elements on you card, especially that hatched diecut as a background (I need to remember that!) I agree about the Blackberry Bliss in this colour combo too - it's a lovely deep contrast to the paler colours and works so well for the sentiment in place of black. A fabulous card!

This little basket of flowers is just delightful! The "wire" looks so real! What a fun way to create your bouquet too and the diecut background pulls it all together! Adorable!
