The Play Date Cafe Challenge PDCC128!! =)

Pin It

WOW!! Look at these AMAZING and BRIGHT Colors for the challenge this week over on the Play Date Cafe Blog here: http://theplaydatecafe.blogspot.com/
I wanted to play with some New Products so this is what I came up with!! =)

I used a Tim Holtz damask embossing plate on a Tim Holtz Core`dinations orange cardstock piece and then I added some Rose Inka-Gold and rubbed it on top of the embossed pattern to bring it out!!
I LOVE the way it looks in real life because it has a very pretty, but subtle shine to it!! I then folded two doilies that I bought at an Antique store and glued them together just in the center so that it would have some dimension!! I then cut a pink piece of cardstock and used some champagne glitz versa mark to stamp a floral image using a New Stamp`in Up stamp. I cut a label from Paper Trey Ink and embossed the sentiment also from Paper Trey Ink in Melon Mambo Embossing Powder from Stamp`in Up and I LOVE this fun color!! =)
I distressed all of the edges of my papers, because I LOVE the texture that it adds and then added the embossed label using pop dots!! I tied three bows out of matching ribbons and then added some May Arts burlap twine behind the bows!! I wanted to cover the center of the bows so I cut a scalloped flower out of felt using a My Favorite Things Rose die and then added a Prima pearl to the center of the rose!! I also added some more pearls to the corners of the cardstock to make the visual triangle so the eye could wonder across my card with good flow!!
I must say I LOVE the way my card came together and I had a BLAST getting to play with LOTS of my NEW products!! =) I hope if you weren't able to play along this week that you'll go and check out ALL of the AMAZING INSPIRATION that was created for this challenge and that you'll play along next week!!  
THANKS for stopping by and have a FABULOUS WEEK!! =)
