Vintage Carousel - Play Date Cafe #107


Welcome to another week with the Play Date Cafe.  This week we are hostessing a Color Splash challenge... black and white with a splash of orange.  SO fun!  My carousel image is from the Life is a Carnival set by The Craft's Meow. I love this set because the images can so easily be "dressed" for a vintage vibe or made bright and bold for something fun.

The Color Splash inspiration:

I  love to see what can be done with a base of black & white.  Neutrals are always welcome additions to the challenge each week... perfect for a girl who loves kraft and wants to use it on everything, don't you think? I snuck some Prima trim and a few sparkly stars into the mix.

Now for our sponsor...

This week Scrapping Cottage is offering a fabulous prize to one of our Cafe players.  I am totally wowed by how cute their die collection is so be sure to join in the fun - I can't wait to see what you create!

All the challenge details can be found in the Cafe.  HUGS.

Wow...that carousol stamp is delightful and the sentiment perfect, great details. The meddalion and stars adds a festive feel, the trim and printed paper create the vintage effect and the splash of orange adds a pop. Nicely done. Thanks for your visit and sweet comment ;)

Oh wow! Denise. This is such genius! I just think you are so clever. Love all the wonderful book print and how it's been perfectly placed and altered in color to suit the challenge brilliantly. The carousel is simply scrumptious. Don't get me started on your trim. Ah, such magic!

Ba-zinga right back! (pretty much the best blog exclamation ever). I love the medallion in the corner, and the paper-piecing on the carousel - beautiful!
