Sending Smiles - Play Date Cafe #127


Lots of sweet elements and sassy somethings decking out this card today for the Play Date Cafe.  I love the bright color inspiration, but it took a decidedly softer direction under my hand today.  I love the flexibility to tweak our beautiful color palettes to fit our own crafty moods and interpretations... today I felt "shabby" and opted for just a subtle pop of cherry.

Daffodil, Hydrangea, Kiwi, and Cherry


My card is also inspired by this week's Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge.  Again, I tweaked it a bit but I loved the little banner element and used the Roses in Bloom set with a frame from Cameo Creations.


Our sponsor this week in the Cafe is one of our favorites... Simon Says Stamp.  We hope you'll join us for a chance to win a great prize... can't wait to see what you create!

So lovely, Denise! Feels like looking in a grandma's parlor with the lovely papers, lace, buttons and rose! That butterfly is too sweet with the little clothespin center!

Very pretty. You have a great talent for creating "shabby". I especially love the beautiful trim along the banner.

oooh girl, this is divine! Utterly shabby-licious! What I adore the most is your rather subdued and sophisticated take on the challange colors. No need to be over the top with them to still effectively nail it. Such an artful interpretation. I love the lovely bits of lace atop the pennants. A nother bit of papercrafting heaven to be found here Denise. So deliciously well done.
