it's a PLAYDATE!


Discount Cardstock is sponsoring The Playdate Cafe this week.  It's is a very cool challenge blog, based on COLOR.  (And I just LOVE color!)  Here are the colors for this week:


And here is my card, based on those colors.


The stamps are from the April Kit of the Month at Unity Stamp Company. and the cardstock is of course from Discount Cardstock!!!  If you need the fun colors that I used on my card - Sunflowers Medium Prismatic, Posh Milk Chocolate Felt  and Frosted Teal Prismatic, you can find them on the DCS website! Be sure to stop by The Playdate Cafe to see their designer's creations! 

I am sort of new to The Playdate Cafe - in fact, this is the first time I've played along with one of their challenges.  But I hope to do it again soon!  Here's just a bit how it works. . .

The Play Date Cafe Challenge (PDCC) was created to be unique and fun. Just follow the COLOR COMBINATION as closely as possible making those colors the FOCUS of your creation. You can make anything you like: cards, layouts, 3-D, home decor...pretty much anything!


I hope you'll join me in playing along at The Playdate Cafe!
