Play Date Cafe and Sweet Stamp Shop

Happy Thursday!  It’s time for a bit of fun over at The Play Date Cafe this week with Sweet Stamp Shop as our sponsor.  

PDCC 113

I chose to use this Scootin’ By set..
I used the little polka dot flag (on the right of the set) to paper piece a mini banner for the top of the card and then finished off with some little presents that I paper pieced.  I added a bit of white with my gel pen for a bit of oomph!

Jax’ inspiration picture had some soap bars (?) with text on so I used that as inspiration for the text background.  The suggested colours are mint, juniper and vanilla.

I hope you’ll join in with us this week, the colours are lovely to work with.  I actually really surprised myself with these.  I thought I would find them tricky being pastels, but I love them and would definitely use this combo again.  Thanks Jax, another combo to add to my list!

Pop by and visit the rest of the team and don’t forget to visit the main Play Date Cafe blog for all of the challenge details.  Sweet Stamp Shop are also having a DT call right now so pop on over to check out the details.

Back soon with a simple thank you card to share with you all.

In the meantime have fun!
