Play Date Cafe Challenge #170

Happy Thursday!

Let's just jump right in, shall we? Today brings a new color story from the Play Date Cafe. Gray is one of the colors, so I automatically love it!

This week's colors are denim, buttercream, and stone. We are sponsored by The Twinery this week, so we're using colors based on one of their twine collections.

I had a lot of fun making this week's card.

In addition to the twine and some washi tape, I used the solid and outline chevron border images from Verve's Borderline stamp set as well as a sentiment from Words of Wisdom. Sequins have made another appearance as well. They don't seem to work on every card, but I sure do love them when they do.

I hope you will join us! You can link up your creation over at The Play Date Cafe Blog. You have through Tuesday, February 26th to play along. While you're there, you can check out the Cup of the Week prize from our fabulous challenge sponsor, The Twinery!

I have a collection of twine from The Twinery, and I love it! I am looking forward to picking up the new platinum and gold shimmer twines they have released, they look fabulous!

A big thank you to The Twinery for sponsoring us this week!

Have a fantastic Thursday!
