Paper Players # 129

Happy Hump Day!!!  Half way through the week already and hopefully the weekend will be here soon.  Need another day off at home so I can stamp.  I need a little inspiration this week so I decided to do another challenge for the Paper Players.

Paper Players 129 1-20-2013

When I first looked at the layout I actually had a hard time figuring out what I wanted to make.  It is such a clean and simple layout and it shouldn't have taken me so long to do but this one did.  In the end I am very happy with my card - I hope you like it as much as I do.

My card base is Whisper White Card Stock.  The polka dot layer I used Sunshine & Sprinkles Designer Series Paper.  At first I wasn't in love with this paper and now I can't get enough of it :) The Melon Mambo Card Stock is cut using my Big Shot and the Window Frames Framelit Die.  The next layer of Whisper White I stamped the whale from Oh, Whale! Stamp Set in Marina Mist and then used the Happy Whale Clearlits Die to cut out the image.  The hearts above the whale is from the same stamp set.  Underneath the whale I cut a piece of the Sunshine & Sprinkles Designer Series Paper using the Frames Framelit Die to get a piece of the water ripples.  I could have used the water ripples from the Oh, Whale! stamp set to get the same affect but I wanted to use the paper instead.  The sentiment came from the same stamp set and I used Lucky Limeade and the Bitty Banners Framelits.
