The Paper Players Challenge #18

This week the Paper Papers have gone Monochromatic and you can choose any color and any sketch! I have wanted to do a non-traditional christmas card but was a little scared. So I thought this challenge would be the one to try it. I have used all Blushing Bride...what do you think?

  • I used the Gifted set for my main image and I did not want the phrase that is in the set for this card so I masked the " Tis the Season" part of the stamp so it would not appear when I stamped the Image.
  • I used sponges to lightly give the egde of the Scallop Square a hint of color so it did stick out like a sore thumb.
  • I did not have any Blushing Bride Buttons so I used the ones from the Subtles Collection...Can you tell the difference?
