Cheery Lynn Whimsical Flowers for the Paper Players


Hi everyone!

Nance has a new color challenge for us today at The Paper Players:


As soon as I saw the copper, I knew what I wanted to make. Last summer one of my friends gave me a piece of alcohol inks that looked just like copper. I had used it to cut out several small pails from Impression Obsession.





Then I cut out some flowers using Cheery Lynn's Whimsical Flower set.
 I LOVE that set. The greenery is so pretty!



I did alot of layering, using Impression Obsession's 5 in 1 frame, MFT's Blueprint #20 and Avery Elle's Pinked set. The sentiment is from Penny Black's festive Snippets.


I really liked this color combo, and I can't wait to see what you all come up with!!
