The Paper Players 378 - Design Team Card

Last week's Love Notes challenge gave us so many wonderful entries at The Paper Players and we were delighted by that. I think this week's gorgeous sketch by Nance will also be popular, since it has such scope. Pop over and see what the rest of the team did with it.

My favourite new set from the Occasions Catalogue is Petal Palette and I'm still experimenting with it. I'm equally taken by the gorgeous Petals and More framelits that go with it. They make cutting out the stamp shapes a cinch but I'm most in love with the branch of leaves and the cut work lattice.

Equally lovely are the strip embossing folders, Petal Pair. I've used one of these for the horizontal element of the sketch. I've water-coloured the spray of roses. Unusual colours but I was inspired by the irresistible colours at Just Add Ink this week.
