Stampin' Up Nothing Better Than Today's Plan Card for The Paper Players Challenge

 Welcome to another week with The Paper Players Challenge.  This week we were presented with a color challenge.  The colors provided to us were: Granny Apple Green, Daffodil Delight, Tahitian Tide and Basic White.  I thought this would be a perfect time to dust off Stampin' Up Nothing Better Than Bundle.  

I started with a panel of Stampin' Up Hues Of Happiness DSP and adhered it to a panel of Tahitian Tide card stock with Stampin' Seal.

I die cut a piece of Basic White with Stampin' Up Layering Circle Dies.  I stamped the sentiment from Stampin' Up Nothing Better Than Stamp Set with Tahitian Tide ink.  I added stars with Granny Apple Green ink.  
I stamped a cocktail glass with Night of Navy ink on a piece of Basic White.  I stamped the umbrella with Tahitian Tide ink.  I stamped the cocktail with Daffodil Delight ink.  I stamped the lime with Granny Apple Green ink.  I die cut the glass with Stampin' Up Love You More Than Dies.  I adhered the cocktail glass to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals.
I die cut the work "cocktails" from Stampin' Up Love You More Than Dies from a piece of Stampin' Up 2022-24 In Colors Glimmer Paper.  I adhered the die cut to the card front with liquid adhesive. 

I finished the card front off with Stampin' Up Elegant Faceted Gems.

I adhered the card front to a Granny Apple Green card base.
The inside is a panel of Basic White with the sentiment stamped with Tahitian Tide ink.  I stamped the cocktail with Night of Navy, Granny Apple Green, Tahitian Tide and Daffodil Delight ink.  I adhered the panel to a Tahitian Tide mat before adhering it to the card base.

I can't wait to see what everyone creates for this weeks challenge!
