It's been forever since I played along with a Paper Players Challenge. Today, Claire has a pretty color combination for us that I though would look nice with this SU set called A Whole Lot of Lovely. I can always use more thank you cards too. I kept the layout fairly simple using the sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch, #135. What makes this card shine, in my opinion, are the added embellishments.
I started off coloring directly on the stamp with my SU Bermuda Bay, Old Olive and Crumb Cake markers. After coloring was completed, I stamped it onto some SU Whisper White card stock. It's cut out with a Lawn Fawn stitched circle die and layered onto a Spellbinders Scalloped circle. The Crumb Cake background is dry embossed with the SU large circle EF. Per the sketch, I added the burlap ribbon along the top of the SU DSP and tied it off with some turquoise Baker's twine. The flowers have rhinestones in the centers and in keeping with the circle theme, I added the enamel dots in the upper corner.
Here's the inside:
