The Paper Players 416 - Design Team Card

Welcome to a new challenge at The Paper Players! This week, Ann Marie has a fabulous sketch for us to play with. It's very versatile. I know this, having made two completely different looking cards with it and having to choose which one to submit! I hope you also have many creative ideas for it.

I took a couple of liberties with the sketch, turning the small square into a circle and adding some embellishments to it. But what is a sketch but a starting point - as long as the idea can still be seen.

Petal Palette is my favourite sets from last year's Occasions catalogue and I've not used it of late. It's got such a lot of lovely sentiments so I selected one as the basis for my card. The rest built up around it.

The Chicken Wire is straight from this year's Holiday Catalogue and is fabulous for both card makers and scrapbookers. Here, I've used it as one of the rectangles in the sketch and I like the airy feel it gives, while the silver adds a touch of romantic elegance.

I'd love to see what you do with the sketch - and so would the rest of the team. Pop over to The Paper Players and see what the rest of the team have done.
