The Paper Players Challenge #63

Today I tried another challenge! I chose the paper first as I knew I did not have all the required ink and paper colors. These colors are all the ones Nace wished for, Rich Razzelberry, Old Olive, Basic Gray and Whisper White. My Big Shot is fairly new, so I played with it several times for this card. The SIZZIX BIGZ die is called Flowers, Daisies # 2 and it is placed on a Textured Impression embossing folder called Square Lattice. Isn't texture fun on cards? For even more texture, all the elements on this card are popped up with assorted dots and dimensionals. I used the Scallop Edge border and the Decorative Label punches. The pearl is from the retired Pretties Kit. This Happy Birthday stamp is most likely retired, as it is labeled 1997.  To make the foliage, I found in my stash another 1997 oldie but goodie SU stamp that I inked up with VrsaMark on an Old Olive scrap. Each leaf is shined up with Crystal Effects before I hand cut them all out. Inside I glued a BIGZ Top Note in white with a small gray and white daisy. All the supplies used are from Stampin' Up! No ribbon this time, unusual for me. Hope you like this card, I do. But why, oh why does it take me so long to make a card?
