PP100: Thanks with Rue des Fleurs

Congratulations to the Paper Players for celebrating their 100th challenge. I have found so much inspiration from the Paper Players. This week's challenge was to find a favorite past challenge and create a brand new card. I chose two cards. A sketch challenge and a color challenge. To create the background paper, I collage stamped on Crumb Cake DSP using Elementary Elegance stamp set from Stampin' Up! I was a bit addicted to collage stamping this weekend. I actually made three cards using the technique.

And, now for the details...

The Stamps
SU Elementary Elegance
SU Rue des Fleurs

The Colors
Pool Party
Soft Suede
Poppy Parade
Very Vanilla

The Embellishments
SU 3/8" Poppy Parade Poly Stitched Ribbon
SU Crumb Cake DSP

The Tools
SU Scallop Edge Border Punch

And, now for the inspiration...
