The Paper Players 388 - Design Team Card

Today, LeAnne has a colour challenge for The Paper Players. Isn't it pretty? With that gorgeous graphic, I couldn't help but think of lavender and the lovely lavender set that was available during Sale-a-bration. Then I got the stubborns and decided that I wouldn't use it!

Even so, I couldn't get away from the idea of flowers and got out a long neglected set, Wild About Flowers. I really like this set because the stems and heads are different stamps, so that it's really very easy to create colourful garden scenes - or do both in a dark colour and make a silhouette.

I used Sheet Music to create a background in Wisteria Wonder and the other two colours for the flowers. Even though the colours are so pretty, there was something elegiac about them, so I made this a sympathy card. I think not all sympathy cards need to be heavy and black.

We'd love to see what you do with LeAnne's pretty colours. Pop over and see what the rest of the team has done with them here.

Product List


  1. Beautiful! I love the embossed background and the flowers look gorgeous. Great design!

  2. I like your card and how you combined the sheet music and the flowers. Great design! Keep up the good work!

  3. This so pretty Jan and the overstamping onto the sheet music is genius. I think these calming colours make for a wonderfully soothing sympathy card too. Hope you enjoyed Onstage - looking forward to swapping stories with you!

  4. I almost made my card into a sympathy card too...this is very calm and soothing, especially with the musical background. I sort of dismissed these florals, but I think I might need to take a second look at them since I love silhouettes so much! Very pretty and nicely done!

  5. This is so lovely, Jan! I love the sheet music background! Two weeks of music--:))) The flowers you created are gorgeous! The silhouettes are so pretty! I sure hope you are having a great week! XX

  6. This card is beautiful and so serene. Love the silhouette flowers against the sheet music. I hope you're having a great week ~ Hugs, Annie

  7. Jan, this card is beautiful and I agree with Ann... it is wonderfully serene. Perfect sympathy card.

  8. Jan, this has to be the prettiest card I’ve seen with this set! Soft, elegant and soothing these flowers and your gentle sheet music background are perfect for a sympathy card. Absolutely beautiful my friend!

  9. Jan, I just love this. The silhouette flowers are just gorgeous against the musical background. Even better, you've inspired me to use this set that has been sitting on my shelf untouched for two years!
