Color challenges are always a struggle for me but decided to play along with The Paper Players Color Challenge PP499 to use Smoky Slate, So Saffron and Seaside Spray. Hmm….so doing my best I pulled out GKD Little Boy Blue cardstock, cut multiple frames using my Waffle Flowers A2 layering dies then decided that the frame needed some embossing so used my swiss dots embossing folder and actually before I adhered the frame to the card base. Next I used Memento’s London Fog ink on the GKD Sunshine Stencil to create background. The main image SU’s Measure of a Life stamp set was stamped in the London Fog and sponged a little Distress Oxide’s mustard seed ink on the dragonfly. Added some crystalline drops that looks like dew.
Not feeling very motivated but hopefully that will change. Have a great day.

Love it! Very nice!
Pretty card! I like your frame dies.
Motivated, or not, this is a great card using the colors. Sometimes, just making leads to ideas and motivation.
Great card. I really like the sunrays framing the dotted frame. The yellow dragonfly is lovely.
Wow, how lovely! The die cut frames highlight your firefly image so beautifully! I’m so glad you joined us at The Paper Players this week!
Love your stenciling and embossing on your background and frame; they look great together! Great use of the colors for the challenge.
I love that image, and your framing of it is stellar! What a gorgeous way to highlight a beautiful dragonfly! Thanks for sharing this with us this week and using my Paper Players colors!!
This is wonderful. I love how the rays and the swiss dots work together and putting the frame around the focal image makes it really pop. Just beautiful.
I love how you framed the image with the dotted frame. It looks fabulous against the rays! Thank you for playing with The Paper Players this week!
