Paper Players Challenge #92

Hello blogger friends!  It's late again, but I wanted to be sure and post the cards I made this evening.  This one is for the Paper Players Challenge #92.  Believe it or not, there is no stamping (or distressing) done on the background.  I found some gorgeous DSP at Archivers last week when I was looking for doilies for another challenge.  This paper is from Simple Stories:  Generations, Always and Forever.  One side had the brown gingham and the other had the gorgeous doilies.  I added chocolate chip matting to a crumb cake base.  My scallops had a layer of lace, too.  I used the With All My Heart stamp set for the image and the sentiment and added a couple pearls.  It was fairly easy, but I struggled over what image and sentiment to use.  I'd never seen a doily design in browns, but I'm thinking it could even be used for a masculine card.

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Oh I love this Carol, what a great way to showcase this paper!

  2. These "colors" are gorgeouse together Carol! At first, I thought the paper was the Medallion stamp but now I see it is stunning DSP! Love the pearl centers and the touch of crochet trim! Thank you for playing with my sketch at The Paper Players!

  3. Carol, what a gorgeous color combo. That little bit of lace ribbon sneaking through the bottom is such a soft and feminine touch and is perfect for your card. So glad you joined the Paper Players this week

  4. Awesome card, Carol! Don't you love it when the paper does all the work? Thanks for playing with us this week!

  5. Great combo of chocolate and crumb cake. Everything coordinates so lovely and the addition of the pearls is a beautiful touch! So glad you joined in the fun at The Paper Players!
