Oh Happy Day for the Paper Players! PP300, CTS#177





Congrats to the Paper Players Challenge for reaching the 300 milestone! A happy day for sure! I am honored to be a guest designer this year with this amazing group of ladies. Have to admit I felt a bit like a graffitti artist when I decorated my "brick wall" with bright colors, balloons and fun shapes in honor of the celebration!


Our challenge this week is a Clean and Simple theme challenge from Jaydee: Celebration!  To celebrate our 300th challenge we are giving away blog candy - and lots of it!  The team has assembled ten grab bags full of stamping goodness!  To be eligible to win one you need to play along with our challenge this week.  You can play as many times as you like, but each needs to be a new project - no back linking please!  See the Paper Players blog for our other challenge rules.  Winners will be selected from all PP300 challenge participants using random.org and will be posted on Saturday June 25th.








I used Leigh Penner's fun sketch at CAS(E) this sketch! for my design.

Love this bright, colorful and fun card on the brick embossed background. It is definitely CAS and so pretty.

Anchoring those balloons on the brick wall is genius! I love them on the embossing. That sentiment is gorgeous too. I can see you as a graffiti artist some day!

Linda, I love your brick wall graffiti card. The colors are wonderful against the white brick background. A fabulous CAS confection. So glad you are a part of our PP team this year

Well, I'd say your graffiti art puts most to shame. This is one well decorated brick wall! Seriously, very cute and creative.

This card would have been wonderful on its own, but adding the brick embossing took it to another level! Such a cool effect!

A wonderful "graffiti" card! Using the brick embossing folder was such a creative idea! Thank you for inviting me back to be part of the 300th challenge!
