I Just Hugged You In My Thoughts! --PP356

August 6, 2017

It's Sunday and time for a new challenge at The Paper Players.  

The amazing Nance is our hostess this week and she has a FUN theme challenge for all of us! It can be an outdoor activity such as cycling, hiking, camping, gardening, etc. or it can be something found outdoors in nature such as birds, bees, flowers, trees, get the idea!  Have fun and we can't wait to see what you create!  

My card is created on a white card base.  I used MFT Blueprints for the orange background.  I used the MFT Cloud stencil to create the sky and distress inks and Lawn Fawn hillside  borders to create the ground. The little girl image and all the leaves were created using the MFT Jumping With Joy stamp set and dies.  I colored them with Copic Markers and added Wink of Stella for shine.  I paper pieced the hat and pants with Lawn Fawn Plaid paper.  The sentiment is stamped in Momento Cocoa ink using the same stamp set.  I love Fall and this is my idea of fun in the "Great Outdoors"!
