PDCC96

Hope everyone had a nice weekend and those in the path of the hurricane came through it safely. I have another card for the Playdate Cafe today. What a splendid trio of colors this week...mint, ivory & coral. 


A couple of months ago I bought 2 sheet of this wonderful Graphic 45 fairy folk paper. Another one of my..."oh this is just too pretty to cut" finds LOL!!! Come on now; who wouldn't want to just save these precious Beatrix Potter images to swoon over! But you see the reverse side of the sweet bunnies is coral floral paper (hey that rhymes!). Cha-ching ~ perfect for the Playdate Cafe challenge! Hand me my scissors!!!

An ivory base was my starting point. Next the coral floral paper with a stitched border and pearlized brads followed by the mint scalloped layers. My tag is topped with an ivory ribbon, mint button and wispy punched pine (Martha Stewart ). A smidgen of glitter (yep...I used glitter again ), ivory trim and PTI tiny tags sentiments along the bottom. That just about does it. Take care ~ Lisa

Lisa, this card is so sweet. I love every little detail - from all the gorgeous papers, to the button/ribbon/branches accent at the top, to the three little dots on the flowers (that match the colour challenge perfectly!).

Such a fantastic card.
