Paper Players and a Friendly Mashup Reminder

Hello, and Happy Friday!

I have a quick card...hope I get it linked up on time!  I am combining this week's SCS sketch with the Paper Players challenge...some soft spring colors this week!  I love diagonal lines, so the sketch caught my eye. Plus, it's very unique from the usual, dontcha think?  I have seen many cards recently with white on crumb cake, so I decided to try it with these colors.

So, on my crumb cake card base, I added some DSP.  The cantaloupe piece is from the Sweet Sorbet pack.  The so saffron is from the long-retired Delicate Dots.  I have a near-full package left!  I think I may have to make some gift sets to use it up!  My stamps (image and sentiment) are from SU's "Because I Care."
I embossed the flower with white embossing powder, and the sentiment with my wild wasabi powder...I hardly ever use it.  After stamping, I colored the image with my markers, though much of the image is just white.  I think I need some ultrafine powder.  I added some enamel dots.  I wanted just a bit more, so I used my wasabi marker to doodle some dots along the edge of the dsp.

Before you go, I need to remind you that there is STILL TIME to participate in the Friday Mashup 200th celebration!  The deadline is March 18th, at 6 pm EST.   Prizes are being given away!  Be sure to add your project AND to comment on the DT cards!  You can find my card HERE.

Thanks for stopping by!
