PDCC # 188 ~ Have a Sweet Day!

Hey there bloggy blog friends! I hope everyone is doing well. I've been card marking away for some upcoming new releases. Trying to get ahead before we take a vacation. When I saw the new colors for the Play Date Cafe ~raspberry, pastel pink and lilac~ I had to squeeze in some time to play along. I've been enjoying plates of fresh fruit for lunch topped with scrumptious raspberries. They, along with the color raspberry for the PDC were my inspiration for this card.

This pretty PSX raspberry stamp is one of my first. Our son loves them so I picked this up a loooong time ago with him on mind! I die cut the PTI mat stack 3, then made a mask of it. This let me have the berries placed behind the mat just where I wanted them. The berries and label are both stamped with pure poppy ink that was stamped off once to lighten the color. A limitless layers (PTI) circle holds a few more berries along with an IO sentiment. I have to tell you that my very favorite ribbons are the PTI twills. This ribbon makes the prettiest bows! I accented my card with a sprinkling of DeNami buttons and a few gems.


I'm so happy you took the time to stop by today. I have a couple of new followers that I want to thank and send a big warm welcome to, so happy you have joined me on my blogging journey!  Have a sweet day ~Lisa

Really, really pretty, Lisa. ;-) The berries are perfect for this color combo, and I love how you've surrounded the Mat Stack die cut with them - inside AND out! Very cleverly done. And that twill bow does look fantastic! Although, my DH won't be happy that you're enabling me. ;-) (hee hee)
