Colorful Thank You Card for PP437

Is a pearl bedecked, colorful thank you card in your future? It’s Sunday, and time to play with The Paper Players!

colorful thank you cardThis week I have the pleasure of hosting the color challenge at The Paper Players.  I thought a trio of Balmy Blue, Calypso Coral and Daffodil Delight would be perfect for creating spring cards. I had fun creating this colorful thank you card, and I hope you enjoy it.

This card is not one which can be created quickly.  However, if you have a little time on your hands, it is a fun card to make.  It involves using the Stamparatus “hinge step” technique to stamp the images which are found in the larger “windows”.
