I love crafting, especially rubber stamping. Most weekends I can be found surrounded by paper, rubber stamps and ink.

You're the Salt. . . .

Good Morning and Happy Valentine's Day,

It's time for a new The Paper Players challenge. Today, Laurie has a very "happy" color challenge for us to use.

It took me awhile to come up with my card, but once I figured out what I wanted to make, it came together.  I'll be giving this one to my "personal chef" for his Valentine's Day card.

I cut the Die-namics frames from the challenge colors and raised them up with fun foam, which is cut with the same dies. I glued the window plastic on top of the foam then glued the frames on top of the plastic. The sentiment is stamped on white card stock. I added the sequin then glued the fun foam to the white panel, which is glued to the Pool Party card base. The chef is stamped, colored with Copics, and cut out with the coordinating die. I raised him up on the front with dimensionals.

I'm looking forward to seeing what you do with this "happy" color combination. You'll find some awesome inspiration by visiting the rest of the design team's blogs:
