The second I saw the inspiration picture from the challenge, it made me think of the Summer Dream papers which have a paper with a very similar big wheel pattern. The Paper Players challenge called for a sentiment-focused card, which was a great way to use the full big wheel paper and not hide it too much. I looked for an appropriate sentiment and found "May Your Day Be Perfect" from the ever-so-practical Suite Sentiments stamp set. I also discovered that my newly-acquired Cupcakes & Carousels Embellishment Kit fit very nicely with my papers (vanilla background, Pool Party accents) so I used the baker's twine, the little paper bow, the sequins and the gold-foil die-cut. Those gold-foil die-cuts were what I was totally in love with, but the rest of the kit is pretty dope as well. I wish we would have full spool of that yellow and turquoise baker's twine - it is awesome!
I added a little touch of Sale-A-Bration in there with a Delicate Details stamped border and two little bows on each side of the sentiment, that come from the Any Occasion stamp set.
This card is pretty huge. Because I didn't want to take away from the patterned paper, the card measures 6" x 6". I had to look into my 12" x 12" scrapbooking cardstock to find a cardstock piece of cut my card base out of. And my trusty Envelope Punch Board came in handy to create a matching envelope. Because the paper pad I was using was 6" x 6", I simply found a random piece of patterned paper that matched (and that I suspect came from my very first scrapbook supplies order over 12 years ago!!
