Whimsical Christmas - Stampin' Up! Whimsical Trees - The Paper Players 557

   It's Sunday and you know what Sunday means?  It's a new Paper Players challenge!  No better way to start off a new week than with a new challenge!  LeAnne has a fun theme for us: By the Numbers!  So you need to have a number on your card!  So many ways you can use this one!

  I wanted to get started on some Christmas designs so I combined a new stamp set Whimsical Trees with some die cut numbers.

 I used all sorts of supplies from the July-December mini catalog to create a nice little Christmas collage.  I'm pleased with how this non-traditional color combo looks (I pulled the colors straight from the Whimsy & Wonder DSP) and the bit of foil gives just the right amount of shine!

  My number element for the challenge was made with the new Silver Foil paper and the Playful Alphabet dies and some of the foam dimensional sheets for a nice popped look! 

  Check out the rest of the Design Team and see their fab creations!
