Playdate Cafe color challenge

Hi Friends,

Well, we had more storms last night.  The wind was really whipping around, and yes, there are more damaged limbs in the tree. So far, the momma bird and her nest are unharmed.  She’s quite protective of the nest, let me tell you.

So onto today’s card… I’m getting another one in under the wire for the Playdate Cafe challenge. They are doing their colorsplash challenge, and I just love those. I really wanted to play along, so I made the card tonight, just in time.  The primary colors are black and white with a splash of blue. 

Here’s what I came up with (using my new Unity Kit of the Month along with some W Plus 9 stamps).


Here’s a close up of the flowers and the butterfly. I put on some sparkle using the Spica Clear pen, but it’s so subtle that you really cannot see it in the photo. However, it’s a nice little touch in real life:)



So did you all submit to the recent Papercrafts publication call? I submitted a few, but I didn’t overdo it this time.

I hope you are all doing well. Remember the Everything but the Kitchen Sink Challenge. You have until 27 June, and there’s a $25 gift card for the Lawn Fawn store at stake!

Hugs and blessings
