PDCC #62

Hello, friends:}


We have a FRESH color story to share with you today! LOVE The Play Date Cafe color challenges--this one has been brought to us by our wonderful leader, Julie! She is mixing some fuschia, poppy, and taupe together! LOVE LOVE LOVE this inspiration photo! I did have to ask what taupe was--and Julie's response was about pantyhose! LOL! Too funny:} **NOTE:: Taupe is a light light brown/tan


I made this sympathy pocket card for a good friend. His wife recently passed away, and I thought these colors were beautiful, soothing, and uplifting just like she was! I looooooooove this frame by Tattered Angels. I glittered it up for extra texture and used by Hero Arts script stamp for the background. I love how that sentiment {Unity Encompassed Grace} peeks through the pocket. I also love love love those butterflies {Unity Happy Everything}. They are actually all different-look closely to the bottoms! CUTE! The polka dots are also a Unity stamp! I think that this card was perfect for this occasion. 

This is another creation I used (with all three colors)...I made a birthday journal with my new Suzi Blu Unity stamp {you can get one at Paper Maniac for a good price!!}. I also used my Unity cupcakes from the 6 pack essentials stamp set. I have to say that the glitter on the top (the stars) really is pink--it looks purple in the pic. The sentiment is actually on the top and bottom of the Suzi Blu stamp--I just masked it and stamped it together. LOVE how this turned out. It is super cute and perfect for a birthday gift!
That's it for me today--but stop on by the other PDCC DT members' blogs! LOVE all their creations!
