Play Date Cafe

Hi Friends

I hope your week is off to a great start!  Today was a gorgeous day in Indianapolis.  Wow, it was awesome. It’s been so terribly hot this summer that it’s been intolerable to be outside.  So this was a very sweet reprieve.  We’re really hoping the weather continues like this for awhile. 

I’ve been wanting to participate in the Play Date Cafe challenge for awhile and not had the opportunity.  So I’m really happy that I was able to play along this week. 

Here’s the inspiration photo:PDCC42

And here’s my take on the challenge:

I did something a little different with Lawn Fawn’s  Judy’s blooms this time. I stamped the flower on cream and shaded with my copics to add some depth.  I stamped it twice and cut them out and glued petals on top of the base flower to add dimension.  Then I added some Basic Grey pearls.  The crinkled ribbon was originally vanilla colored, and I used glimmer mist to die it. Then I crinkled it on red line tape.  I just love the look. 

Thanks for stopping by

Hugs and blessings

Lynnette
