PDCC 82

Hello, friends:}

Today starts another amazing color story over at The Play Date Cafe. This week, Ruby has shared a vintage photo as our inspiration--light blue, pale yellow, and orange brown. That's what I saw!
I had several ideas for my creation this week...I had about seven cards sketched out....but I ended up making this fun birthday card for my dad. The colors just made me think of him! The inspiration photo also made me think instantly of my dad--he travels all over the world every week. I used some old DCWV papers and the Birthday Buddies stamps from Paper Smooches. Easy--love how this turned out! **NOTE:: In order to match my colors to the inspiration photo, I carried my iPhone with this pic around to all the craft stores and held it up to the papers! I love getting just the right color of cardstock and papers:)
That's it for me...but be sure to stop by the PDCC blog for complete details and prize information! The PDCC sponsor this week is Discount Cardstock. And our Guest Designer is Laura DavisAnd don't forget to stop by all the other Play Date Cafe DT members' blogs--you won't believe how they used these colors! F-U-N!!!!




Thanks for stopping by! Be blessed:}
