Play Date Cafe Challenge #192

Hello there!

Wow, this month is just flying by. It is already the last Thursday of July! I'll be honest, I'm a little anxious for August to get here so we can close on our new house, but I do realize that time is zipping by far too quickly.

But Thursday means that it is time for the The Play Date Cafe Challenge! It is time for a color splash this week and we're splashing with neon yellow! Ooh!

Just like in the good old 80s, neon is trending again! Maybe you have some of the fun neon ink or cardstock that is available that would be just perfect for this week's challenge. I don't :) but this is what I came up with.

I rifled through my patterned paper stash and found this printed transparency from the now defunct Hambly Screen Prints. Bingo. Just the right pop of yellow to pull off neon :)

I added a block of the transparency to my card then stamped a sentiment on a little banner. I went back and added the black cardstock behind the transparency to help tone down all that white. This was the hardest card to photo - all white on white.

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, July 30th to play along. While you're there, you can check out the Cup of the Week prize from the PDCC prize vault!

I can't wait to see what you create!

STAMPS: Strictly Sentiments 2 - Wplus9
CARDSTOCK: White, Black - Wplus9; Yellow Bicycle Transparency - Hambly Screen Prints
INK: Onyx Black Versafine - Tsukineko
OTHER: Banner Trio Die - Wplus9


  1. Love the rows of bikes Anya - congrats on your new house! How exciting! (and nerve wracking!!)

  2. Brilliant! Love the little neon bikes - such a fun card!

  3. Love this card! The bikes are a FAVE!!!
    So sad that Hambly is defunct! I miss them terribly...
    Owell, this card is so cool.

    Thanks for your comment on my entry to the challenge - Means alot to me!

    Side note:
    I love, love, love the Playdate cafe, (not complaining I love looking at the entries all the time), however I am new to the challenge relatively and I never know when they post winners.. is it monthly - or fortnightly? I will post it to my calendar if it is regular, I just could not figure it out... Thanks so much Anya!!

    Hugz Kimberly.
