PDCC #93

Hello, friends:}

Hoooooray for another fun day over at the Play Date Cafe! We are starting another color story today-watermelon, sorbet, lime. I love these colors together--for my creation, I went off the watermelon image from the graphic.
I wanted to make an envelope card similar to one that I saw on a blog a couple weeks back (I cannot for the life of me figure out where I saw it--please let me know if it was you!! I will add your link!). I made this envelope by hand and just decorated the outside. SO FUN! I love that little watermelon and the calendar tag {Unity images}. I also love those letters--they are foam and match the polka dot paper PERFECTLY! I also used my favorite twill ribbon from The Ribbon Carousel!! LOVE this envelope! 
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 Pink Persimmon. And don't forget to stop by all the other PDCC DT members' blogs-- AMAZING! And speaking of our DT--we are welcoming our two new DT members: Julie Day and Denise Johnson! HOOOORAY!

Thanks for stopping by! Be blessed:}
