Play Date Celebrate
This week the colors for the Play Date Cafe Challenge were brights: pink, blue and orange. I had about 5 ideas right away, but settled on this one. These are great summery colors. The card kind of created itself as I was making it. I had an idea in my head, but then cut the pink base paper wrong, so it ended up having a side fold, with a short, wide panel. Then as I was stamping on the flowers (from PaperSource), I kept turning it, until finally I settled on a top folding card. It was neat to kind of just let it make itself, if that makes sense.
And the inspiration photo:
I think I might use this design to make some Fourth of July cards. I don't usually send them, but these flowers in this design with the Celebrate sentiment made me think of the Fourth. Have a good weekend.
