Play Date Cafe Challenge #33

Mona selected the yummy colors for this weeks challenge at the Play Date Cafe Challenge. Love this color combination and think you might find it a fun one to try. Raspberry, Aqua, Kraft and White...


I had some beautiful Memory Box Paper called Jubilee that had three of the four colors already on the paper! I decided to pull it out and incorporate it into the design of the card. 



The butterfly is sponged with Memento Dye Ink called Rosebud. (Quite appropriate as it matches the lovely roses on the card from Prima Marketing.

The branches were made using the Fiskars Punch.

The rest are bits and pieces of trim, ribbon, hat pin and flowers. 

The challenge this week is hosted by Ruby

Our sponsor this week is Practicing Creativity. Go check out the PDCC to see the wonderful prizes.   Courtney Baker is also joining us in the challenge this week as our guest designer!
The rest of the design team created some fab projects with the fun colors. 


Hope you find time to play along!

What a cute card Suzz! I probably would never have put those colors together but they really work. I've looked at that Rosebud ink and wondered what it would look like. Very pretty! Looks like another great challenge. Thanks for sharing your beautiful card.
