Playing with the Paper Players

I just love when I make a project, and before I have a chance to post it anywhere, I discover that it fits the bill for a challenge.  Well that’s exactly what happened here when The Paper Players posted their color challenge today.

I posed a question on my Facebook page, asking my readers to respond with their favorite choice of green for St. Patty’s Day.  I promised to randomly select a winner from all the comments to send a St. Patrick’s Day treat.  stampin' up! greensWhen I selected the winner, I wanted to send along a card, and of course the card had to be green, Cucumber Crush, to be exact!  I thought a touch of gold was fitting.  So here is my card:

Yay for Green!

Lots of white and Cucumber Crush green accented with gold!  Just perfect for the Paper Players challenge:

I started with a Stampin’ UP! notecard in Whisper White, added a layer of Cucumber Crush & White diagonally striped paper, a layer of Whisper White adorned with Washi Tape in gold, and a few gold metallic enamel shapes, and a star stamped in Cucumber Crush ink from the Confetti Celebration stamp set.  A few snips from my paper snips cut out the shape in no time!  Fast. Easy. Wow!

By the way, My Green Color Quiz?  It was a dead heat between Emerald Envy and Cucumber Crush!
