Less is more and Paper Players #133

I thought long and hard about the "Up in the Air" challenge at Less is more and really did not have any ideas. I did not want to repeat airplanes, birds or butterflies or anything else that is quite obvious. And finally I thought I would use this fun tightrope walker stamp. It is really not my original idea, I just played with it, using a card my sister made a little while ago, that I have posted on my blog here

The tightrope walker is from Stampsmith, the skyline I have no idea. The sentiment is computer created and the sky is patterned paper. I used hemp cord for the tightrope.


Not much time left, to play in this weeks Paper Players challenge - I thought I'll miss it, but I lucked out this time. I made the card a couple of days ago and then things got really busy and I never got around photographing it. I was not even sure if I should show it in public. Not one of my better cards. Neither bows nor buttons are my thing - I think it shows. It won't be a winner, but most cards are not anyhow. So who cares, here it is:

The dies are Lifestyle Crafts, the sentiment is Papertrey.

Super cute. I love that big bow and the creative use of the buttons with the sentiment tags. The rubber ducks are the perfect finishing touch for a totally fun baby card. So glad you joined the Paper Players this week

Wow! I saw thic card on the challenge up in the air, and was in love at first glance!

This one of the most STAND OUT from the crowd cards I have seen in along time, awesome.


PS I read Paper Piecing (LIM) and almost posted a pieced card too, so hey I am in your boat there! ha.
