PDCC 29




This week's Play Date Cafe Challenge colours, chosen by Sarah, are lime green, leaf green and very pale blue and are just stunning.  The eagle eyed among you will realise that my card:


uses the tag I had on my workdesk yesterday - it must be a premonition!  I decided that the crushed olive could probably count as lime green and made some paper butterflies with the small Wendy V stamp.  I found some reasonably pale blue patterned paper in my (large) stash of 12 x 12 papers.

I added one of the butons from my haul at Worthing, (which is a lovely dark leaf green!) to cover the hole in the tag.

Now to try and get the Sunday Stamper "use gold" challenge done before the weekend - but not tonight!

Those are lovely colours, and I like how you have used them. I love that small butterfly stamp as well, I'm using it loads!

Love this. I can deal with the lime green accents - must take Paul's advice next time and use the colour I like least as accents only, lol!! I haven't used my Olive green much yet - must get those distress inks out...

The background is one of my favourite stamps, along with the butterflies, lovely piece of work.

Love your tag and especially the background stamp. I found these colours more difficult this time. A lot of us seem to have used butterflies LOL. Least you found a use for your tag. Tracy Evans x
