The Paper Players #505

LeAnne has a super fun sketch for us this week at The Paper Players! Consider this a sneak peek of the fun new products to come in the new Close To My Heart catalog!  I thought the sketch would be perfect to showcase some of the new papers.  Here is the original sketch design-

My papers are from the new Party Time paper packet.  This collection will be featured in our annual catalog, which goes live on September 1.  The collection includes 12 sheets of 12x12 paper in a double sided design.  One side features blue tones and the other side features pink tones!  Here is a look at the collection-
Super cute and perfect for your birthday creations! After cutting a mix of papers for the sketch, I pulled it all together by using the Stitched Rectangle Frame Dies.  I cut two frames, cutting one in pieces to use for the inner frames.
