The Paper Players: Sending Smiles

I hadn't treated myself to "cute" stamps in a long time, but this set from Mama Elephant was a must!!

Sending Smiles

Check out the clouds that this sweetie is floating through!

I had so much fun making this card.  I realized that I don't color very often anymore but I LOVE it and need to do more!!

I also had a great sketch to work with.  The Paper Players had a tall panel and I knew it would perfectly!

  • Paper: Stampin' Up Coastal Cabana, Simple Stories I {heart} Summer dsp
  • Ink: Memento black and copics
  • Accessories: Taylored Expressions clouds impression plate, Mark Richards White Glitter Dome stickers

This is stinkin' cute, Kims! Coloring is so comforting; takes you back to your inner 6-year-old. I love how the colors of this post match up so well with your banner colors!!
