Play Date Cafe Challenge #145

Hi there!

I am happy to bring you today's Play Date Cafe Challenge #145.

I love today's color combination, and I hope you will too!

Kinda makes me think fall! Here is what I created..


All of the sentiments are from the Back in the Saddle set from Waltzingmouse. I combined three different ones here, and love how they turn into a longer phrase. Achieving the color gradient on the sentiments was easy to do - I just inked the whole sentiment first in More Mustard ink and then went in with a darker shade (Tangerine Tango) and inked up just the bottom. Good stuff!

This week's prize is being brought to you by the fabulous folks at Momenta.

Head back to the the The Play Date Cafe Blog to find out what you're playing for and to join in the fun!
