The Play Date Cafe#89 Guest Designer

Hi everyone, I am SO SO SO excited to shout out that I am the guest designer of The Play Date Cafe this week. You don't want to miss this week's color story and awesome prize. Make sure to check out all the contest details and great creations from The Play Date Cafe Design team. They've prepared a wonderful eye candy for you. The deadline is Tuesday, July 12, 2011, at 11:59 pm ESTCome play with us and see you there. 
Here is this week's color story. Is it gorgeous!! Love Love Love it. I just love the soft tone from all the yummy photos. I had so much fun playing with this color combo. I am sure you will have fun too. Can't wait to see your take on this challenge.

This week's fabulous sponsor is The Craft’s Meow, who are so generous provided the DT with stamp to use for the challenge. This is the beautiful stamp I used for my card called: Celebrating You Stamp Set.


Here is my card. I stamp the flower and sentiment on craft card base with Rich Cocoa ink. Die-cut Eyelet Circle from white card stock and adhere on card base. Stamp flowers and leaves again on white cardstock with Desert Sand ink, color with markers and cut out. Pop off on card with foam tape. Tie on ribbon and add gems.

Wow, your card is amazing. Even more amazing that you just had a baby. I don't think I functioned well the first three months! Sleep when you can.;)
