Today was a card making day...

Today was definitely card making well as movie day.  I participated in the Paper Players sketch's been way too long since I was able to partake in the fun on their blog!

This blog, Paper Players, is great! I love their challenges; they rotate them...they are a one stop shop for keeping your mind creatively functioning!  Check the schedule out:

Week One: Theme Challenge with Pinterest Inspiration
Week Two: Colour Challenge
Week Three: Clean and Simple Challenge
Week Four: Sketch Challenge
Week Five: Tic Tac Toe

What I really love is...they accept all stamping products for participation...even though the blog is heavy on Stampin Up! stuff, which I LOVE!, but I have a lot of other products!  Hats off to them! Thank you for including all of our creativity! I appreciate it!  Here's the guidelines for participation:

1. Create a new paper project, using any stamping products.

2. Upload your creation to your blog with a link back to us.

3. Please fill in the linky with a direct link to your post.

4. Please leave a comment so we know you have played.

5. Feel free to combine our challenges with up to 3 challenges, total!

6. Have fun!! 
Anyho, here's my card for the challenge:


  1. Oh Barb, this is so pretty! That paper is gorgeous, I can't stop looking at all the intricacies of it. Love the colors and the beautiful butterfly. Thank you for your sweet words about our blog...we're glad you found us! Thank you for joining us at The Paper Players!

  2. Gorgeous, Barbara! I LOVE this paper! The butterfly is the perfect touch! Thanks for the kind words about our challenge...and thanks for playing with The Paper Players!

  3. Barb, I love the repetition of circles, they really create fabulous movement on your card. I also love the fact that you made the sentiment feel so much larger - and grander - with your treatment around the focal circle. So glad you found the Paper Players and so glad you joined us this week and shared this fabulous card. We look forward to visiting your creations again.

  4. Barbara, so glad you are enjoying The Paper Players challenges. (I kind of like it there, too, LOL!) I love all the pretty little details on your project, and that sweet butterfly is a real eye-catcher. Thanks for sharing your project with us this week!
