This week I am hosting the first color challenge of 2021 at The Paper Players.  If you are tired of holiday colors, these colors will be a welcome change.  If you don’t happen to have the exact Stampin’ Up! colors, please feel free to substitute colors of a similar hue. We can’t wait to see what you create!

The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips

Today’s card is easy-peasy. Why? Because those gorgeous dragonflies are punched from designer series paper. And the die cut frame? Well, it’s from the  Dandy Laser-Cut Paper collection. This is truly one card where the paper does all the work. All it took to finish up the card was to add a sentiment,  a few embellishments, and voila! It’s done!
