Play Date Cafe Challenge/Birthday Card
This week's Play Date Cafe color challenge uses a combination of colors I wouldn't normally put together, but as always provided a great way to step outside my comfort zone.
Here are the colors...
My coffee buddy Lisa Cerrato is having a birthday tomorrow so I made her this card...
Like many of you, I LOVE buying new products, but I struggle with serious guilt because I already have so much great stuff. So for this card, I used supplies I had on hand like buttons, sparkly brads, felt shapes and older papers. The only new thing here is a bit of a sneak peak. The "happy day" ticket and the stamped flourish above the flowers are both from the stamp set "You and Me" in Close To My Heart's upcoming National Scrapbook Month campaign in May. (More details to come.)
The stamped flowers are "Innoscents Flowers 2" from Heartfelt Creations. The colors I used are Close To My Heart's Sky, Tulip and Hollyhock.
Thanks for stopping by today. Enjoy your Tuesday and be sure to check out all the great artwork posted on the Play Date Cafe blog.
