Play Date Cafe Challenge #159

Hi there!

It is time once again to share this week's Play Date Cafe Challenge. I hope you enjoyed last week's two-weeker and had a chance to play along with us. This week we have a super fun Color Splash for you!

This week's challenge colors are black and white with a splash of maroon. Here is the card that I made:

Santa is from the Around Christmastime set from Waltzingmouse Stamps. I stamped the image and die cut it with a Spellbinders circle die. I colored just the hat, and added some Frosted Lace Stickles to Santa's beard. The circle was matted with a die-cut pinking circle, a doily, and some big buttons. I like the little strip of red that peeks through the doily.

The background was stamped with the Vintage Christmas Backgrounder from WMS.

I hope you will join us for this week's challenge. You can link up your creation over at The Play Date Cafe Blog. You have through Tuesday, December 4th to play along. While you're there, you can get all the necessary details, be inspired by the rest of the DT creations, and check out the Cup of the Week prize. Whew!
