Playdate Cafe Color Challenge

Hi Friends

I cannot believe it but I’m actually playing in a challenge. I love Playdate Cafe color challenges, so I’m squeezing this one in between other things I need to get done (and it’s already past my bedtime).  I’m not sure where all the time is going, or why I’m so busy, but there sure is a lot going on these days :)

So the colors for the challenge were white, melon and green.  I am need of several “thinking of you,” “praying for you,” or “just because” type of cards, so I decided to get use that sentiment for this challenge. Here’s what I came up with:

I broke out some Papertrey Ink stamps (Turning a New Leaf, and Blooming Button Bits), and of course I had to use a small sentiment from Lawn Fawn’s Bows and Holly. Come to think of it, that sentiment isn’t any of the three listed above, but it will serve its purpose. 

I embossed the flower in clear to add richness to the color. I also broke out one of my Wilton doilies. 

Thanks for stopping by today, and have a great night
