The Paper Players Colour Challenge: PP516

Another beautiful day in Pennsylvania with temperatures in the 70’s. I think one more day of outdoor winterizing before the fall chill and rain returns to us. In the meantime, I created a card for The Paper Players Colour Challenge: PP516 using these pretty Christmas (to me) Stampin Up colors.

However, since I’m still not anywhere near ready for Christmas cards I decided to turn the colors into another fall/autumn/Thanksgiving card. My green is Distress evergreen bough ink and a Gina K stamp from the Petals & Wings set. I pulled out one of my favorite SU silhouette sets Garden Silhouette to gold emboss. The sentiment FAITH is also a GKD stamp from Triple Play Frame which also was gold embossed. So this is normally where I run into problems adding another color and I was looking to go minimalistic and used a strip of Recollections Christmas Plaid paper pad for Real Red. A punched butterfly in gold was added to finish off this card.

Thanks for looking and have a great day. Stay safe.

  1. Who knew that traditional Christmas colors would make such a beautiful Thanksgiving card. This is so pretty, great job.

  2. Lovely wildflower and butterfly, and the plaid is beautiful! So happy you shared this with us at the Players this week! And I live in PA too…not too far from you, relatively speaking!

  3. A beautiful and elegant CAS card Gayle, proving these colours don’t have to mean Christmas. Thanks for playing along with my colour challenge at The Paper Players this week!
