Here's my card for the current challenge at The Paper Players. I used the layout to make a fun summer themed birthday design using Reverse Confetti's Seaside stamp set and dies.
I made a background for the image from a wavy patterned piece from one of RC's Quick Card Panels sets, matted on contrasting red and layered over an aqua circle that was also matted with red. The round and rectangular panels were adhered to a teal card base, then the sentiment panel with the crab image was positioned on top. This red/aqua/kraft color combination just might be one of my all-time favorites!
