The Paper Players - PP557 - A Theme Challenge from LeAnne

You know sometimes when you see a challenge theme and too many ideas come to mind?  That was my dilemma at The Paper Players this week where the theme is By the Numbers.  I made two cards... I think I will submit both.

I settled on a weight number! I used Art Impressions Thin Enough set along with a birthday sentiment from Simon Says Stamp Big Birthday Greetings.

The initial thought that came to mind was an AT&T Princess Trimline phone.  I just wasn't sure if anyone would get the reference.  My best friend and I each got pink Princess phone when we were 12 and thought we were the best.  I recreated that pink trimline phone using My Favorite Things Caption Numbers, the swirly long phone cord from Taylored Expressions (Curly Border) and a reminiscent birthday sentiment from Mama Elephant Birthday Messages.

Elizabeth both of these cards are just fabulous and so perfect for our numbers challenge this week! I love that pink princess phone and all the little details and the first one just made me laugh out loud - I’m sure I’m not the only one to identify with that sentiment! Thanks for playing along with The Paper Players this week!

Oh my goodness, I can't decide which of these I like those most...they're both FABULOUS! I am partial to that princess phone, though! VERY clever! Thanks for rocking my challenge with both of these!
