The Play Date Cafe Challenge } #78

Do you love a color challenge??? I so you need to check out The Play Date Cafe. They have a fun new challenge up every week. This is my third week playing along and i'm loving it. I have to say....this one was a challenge for me for sure!! I love the colors, but had a hard time picking out the paper to use. After changing my mind 3 times on the paper and after 2 hours of trying to design it...it was done!! Ok so that being said I gave the card to hubby's grandma this past weekend for her birthday having NOT took a picture of it, so yep...it's time to start all over :) Here is what I came up with the second time around.




So for this card I used some an older line Togetherness from Cosmo Cricket. I needed some red in it so I used a BoBunny double dot sheet for the background paper. Added a little border punch, and pop dotted up some things I cut out from the paper itself. Throw in some Kaiser Craft pearls and some yummy twine from The Twinery (blossom)and there you have it...challenge 78 is done :)
Thanks for stopping by!!!
