The Play Date Cafe #179

Hello happy people! It's the best day of the week! A new color story is over at the Play Date Cafe. Our colors are Grass, Rose Petal, and Hibiscus. Makes me yearn for spring (or at least spring-ish temperatures).

I made this card for my mama, and it has already been thrown in the post box. I think she really is pretty amazing!

The flowers were fussy cut from pattern paper in My Mind's Eye "The Sweetest Thing - Tangerine" paper pad. I double or triple layered a few of the flowers to give dimension. The sentiment is stamped in Versamagic chalk ink "Aloe Vera", with Paper Smooches stamp from "word salad" set.

The winner this week will win a gift certificate from The Twinery! I loooove their new shimmer twines :)

Our Private Blend Designer, Ashley, is finishing up her term over in the cafe. She has brought so many beautiful projects to the team and we are so grateful for the time she had with us! Have fun creating ANY project you want with these inspiration colors. Just link over to the Play Date Cafe :)
