PDCC #142 ~ Bloom Where You're Planted!

Good Monday morning to ya! How about a little something I put together for the Play Date Cafe over the weekend. They've given us three fun colors ~ Cobalt, Goldenrod and Peony. The cobalt threw me a little on this one when trying to work it in. Then I spotted this pretty blue button hanging around in my stash and it helped to point me in the right direction! 


The focus for my card comes from the buttons in the inspiration photo. I chose my Lily Bee Design polka dot paper to mimic their golden color! I decided to go with just of sparkly sprinkling of the blue as an accent to the other two colors while looking at the shiny bracelets. I kept my design pretty simple by using a couple of tags from my stash, PTI: beautiful blooms die cuts & tag-its #3 stamps. The pink wreath represents the pink foliage near the gate. Can I tell you just how much I love Papertrey Ink grosgrain ribbon and felt. They really are fabulous products. The felt die cuts beautifully and the grosgrain ribbon holds it shape perfectly. The vintage cream is my favorite!


I hope your week is off to a great start! ~Lisa

Love how you tied all the elements together so beautifully. The lady bug with the blue dots is just too, too cute hiding in the bottom corner.
