If you follow my blog regularly you already know how much I love playing at The Play Date Cafe.
Here are this week's colors
I missed the last two challenges :( so this week I was determined to play along. It turns out that was going to be harder than I thought! I was on a hunting trip through my stash for gray paper, or gray ink, or well gray anything!! The only thing I could find that had any kind of gray in it was graduation paper . . .eek! Thankfully, amongst all the wonderful bright colors in the Jillibean Soup staples pack there was a 6 x6 sheet of gray :) After a hour long scavenger hunt I finally got to work :)
I cut a piece of white to 1 1/2 x 5 1/2 and added some gray ribbon (American Crafts) I accidentally found this while looking for my purple ribbon, I had no clue I even owned it . . oops :) I added my purple ribbon and then trimmed the edges. The sentiment is from Hero Arts, All Occasion Messages.
The flower was stamped 3 times on white cardstock and the leaf twice (both from Hero Arts, Layered Flowers) I colored the flower with my H20 pen and dusty concord. The leaves were colored with crushed olive. I fussy cut everything out. The flower was put to together with foam tape and adhered flat to the card.
I topped the flower off with some stardust stickles and a purple button.
So now that it's all said and done I think I like it enough to go get some more gray paper :)
