I saw the sketch for the Paper Players 201 this week and decided to play along.  It didn't look like anyone had used Timeless Talk so I decided to go for it!

Deciding on a color palette is easy witht he help of the Color Coach.  After selecting the dsp from the 
 Moonlight dsp Stack, I checked the Color Coach for possibilities with Sahara Sand.  One of the suggestions was Early Espresso, Pear Pizazz, & Sahara Sand.  I went with it because I knew that I wanted a darker color for the tricycle and a lighter color for the swirl.

After laying the pieces out, I felt that my dsp needed an edging.  Nothing dramatic, so I selected Sahara Sand & the Finishing Touches Edgelit.  Just enough color to provide definition without overwhelming the dsp.

First I stamped the swirl from Everything Eleanor on Pear Pizazz cardstock with Pear Pizazz Ink.  Next, I stamped the tricycle from Timeless Talk on top of the swirl using Early Espresso Ink.  This was cut out with the Deco Labels Framelits.  

The sketch called for a few banners which I cut and embossed with the Fancy Fan Embossing Folder  & the Decorative Dots Embossing Folder.  I intended to use Candy Dots on the wheels for embellishment,  but the more I looked at my card, I felt Pearls would be a better fit.  What do you think?

Would you like to see the sketch that I worked from?





Paper Players Inside

Because my cardbase is Early Espresso, I lined the card with Whisper White and stamped the swirl from Everything Eleanor in Pear Pizza & then stamped the sentiment from Remembering Your Birthday in Early Espresso.  This ties the front of the card with the inside of my card.
