Popping in to share a card I created for this week's Play Date Cafe Challenge.

I stared at these colors all weekend, thinking how I wanted to use them. Finally, at 9:30 last night, I gave myself half an hour to whip something up. Challenging myself like this is fun sometimes - I am a very sloooooow cardmaker, so it leaves no time for deliberation.

I pulled my supplies together and just went with it! Am loving all the camera images popping up in stamp land, so I jumped on that wagon for this card, tapping into the supplies I have set aside for my Project Life.

The camera stamp is from Dear Lizzy and was stamped onto a grid lined journaling card. The chevron pattern is from the Mint Motif Beyond Borders set.

These colors are all so intense, I thought the 'less is more' approach was a better one. I brought the springy green color in with some washi tape, a button, and a punched tab. I just picked that punch up, but I seriously love it.

Thanks for stopping in to see me today, have a good one!
