Wish Big!

I'm on a bit of a roll when it comes to creating, (Insert happy face!) and it's largely due to all the great eye candy out there in blog land!  The Paper Players is a challenge blog that I follow but hadn't played with in quite some time.  I loved their concept for this week's challenge:

How fun is this?!?!?  Well I have Tic Tac Toe, but I may also have a random square...that happens sometimes right?  Take a look at my card:

Can you guess which squares I used?....
I ended up using the top row, along with the ribbon square.  I'm really not a floral person, nor blue, and I really struggle with masculine cards.  I saw this card on Pinterest and loved it immediately and based my card off hers.

Stampin' Up asked sometime last year on their Facebook page what color you'd like to see added.  My response was "the color of grandma's raspberry jam."  I love this color, though I have to's the first time I've played with any of the new in colors! 

The paper is from the Harvest Orchard DSP and don't let the name fool's perfect for so many occasions!  I'm in love with the new piercing templates, and I pierced the DSP...though I wish I hadn't :(  A large pearl and some Dazzling Details and the card is complete!

Thanks for stopping by!

  5. Such a fun card, Bobbie! I just love how rich that color looks paired with the polka dot paper and the texture from the ribbon. Thank so much for joining us this week at the Paper Players! :)
