Play Date Cafe Challenge #162

Hi there! It certainly is a busy time of year, isn't it? I hope you are all having a chance to enjoy the season. I have been doing my best.

Today I am here to share this week's Play Date Cafe Challenge. This week we have another beautiful holiday combination: gold, teal, mint, and lavender.

This week we were sponsored by Jenni Bowlin Studios who sent us some fabulous stamps to work with.

I used the Writer clear stamp and created this card:

I used strips of cardstock to add some color blocking to my card. I made sure to incorporate some glitter for the gold! I stamped the stamp right over my cardstock strips then added the word hello, assembled with Thickers. This stamp was fun to use, you could have it writing just about anything!

This is another great holiday color combination - I hope you will join us! This challenge will be open for two weeks, so hopefully you will be able to squeeze something in amongst all your holiday merry-making! You can link up your creation over at The Play Date Cafe Blog. You have through Tuesday, January 1st to play along. While you're there, you can check out the Cup of the Week prize from our fabulous challenge sponsor, Jenni Bowlin Studios!

Thank you for sponsoring us this week, Jenni Bowlin Studios!

Have a super day and a very happy holiday if I don't see you before then!
