Paper Players and PPA Preview

Good Morning! Welcome to my blog. I'm so thankful for all of the nice comments I received on yesterday's Blog Hop! It was fun and I'm sure those of you who hopped along saw lots of Holiday Catalog ideas. Today I'm entering my card into the Paper Players Challenge. (Don't forget to check out my PPA sneak peek at the end of this post!)

I used the large flower stamp from Betsy's Blossoms to stamp in Crumb Cake on Whisper White. Then I stamped the image again in Cherry Cobbler and Not Quite Navy. I circles out of those images, then mounted them over the flat images, trying to match them up. The circles are popped up on Stampin' Dimensionals, as is the paper-pieced bird image. My bird has a red rhinestone eye, thanks to a Red Sharpie Marker. 

The sentiment is from the Curly Cute stamp set and is stamped in Cherry Cobbler. Thanks for looking! I love your comments, so won't you leave me one?
