Stampin' Up! Celebrate You

We just celebrated Independence Day but this card is not for that celebration...it's for The Paper Players 400th Challenge

Jaydee came up with this challenge to celebrate the people who have played at Paper Players. However, I want to celebrate them for being faithful to have a challenge, creating cards as examples, posting comments on the participants' blogs and announcing the winners...that's dedication.

So, without further ado, here's my card in their honor...

I chose red, white and blue so I could also play at Retro Rubber - Challenge #90

RRCB 90

With Retro Rubber challenges, you have to use a stamp that is older than a year. So I did that by using a stamp from Label Me Pretty on the inside. That set was debuted June 1, 2017.


I hope you'll take the time to visit the challenge sites. Thank you for stopping by today and if you have any questions, please let me know in a comment.

  1. Karen, thank you! We really appreciate you celebrating us. It means a great deal :-) I love the stained glass effect on the bottom of your card it really adds wonderful movement. I also love the stars on the top half and the layered sentiment. Fabulous card! So glad you helped us celebrate our 400th challenge
