Play Date Cafe Challenge #153


It is time for this week's Play Date Cafe Challenge! Are you ready? We have a selection of yummy colors this week featuring bubblegum, tangerine, and pear.

Here is the scrappy little card I created:

I started by inking the edges of my Kraft cardstock with white ink. I added a strip of pink cardstock that I ran through my paper crimper. It was spritzed with Mister Huey's Calico Shine, but it doesn't show up well in the photo.

I layered a doily on top of that then added the chipboard butterflies. The sentiment is a fun little transparency, and I adhered it with a mini staple.

Now I invite you to head over to the The Play Date Cafe Blog to link up your creation. You have through Tuesday, October 16th to play along. While you're there, you can check out the Cup of the Week prize from our fabulous challenge sponsor, Simon Says Stamp!
