Tangled Up in Creativity and the Paper Players Challenges

 Hi Everyone.  It's Monday and what better way to start of the week than doing a little stamping.  Actually, I have been doing a lot of stamping as I am trying to get swaps done for the Stampin' Up! convention in 10 days.  So I thought I would take a break from my swaps and do a card for the Tangled Up in Creativity Blog Group and the Paper Players challenges. 

Monica, one of the hosts for the Tangled Up in Creativity challenge this month sent everyone in the group pretty DSP to use on their card.  We were challenged to use both papers or at least one of the papers on our card. 

I also used the challenge sketch over at the Paper Players and they are also celebrating their One Year Anniversary.  Congrats Paper Players.

This card also uses one of the new Big Shot die cuts - Perfect Pennants which will be available in the new 2011 2012 Idea Book and Catalogue.  This new catalogue will be available on my website on July 1st.  How's like Christmas seeing all the new goodies.

So that will be it for tonight and until next time....
