Play Date Cafe Challenge #34


Happy Thursday, sweet friends! I am so excited to report that Limelight Papercrafts is again sponsoring The Play Date Cafe Challenge! Thanks so much for joining me today, and I hope you'll participate in being inspired by this BEAUTIFUL photo! The color story for this week is black and white with a POP of BLUE! (You can choose the shade of blue!) I cannot wait to see what you come up with!! :)
For my anniversary card, I used a white cardstock base and added on a layer of K & Company fabric! I picked up this package of fabric at Michael's the other day on clearance! :) A black strip of cardstock, puched with the SU Scalloped Border Punch was placed across the bottom of the card. I tied on some Wrinkled Ribbon that I made (I simply wet and scrunched up some seam binding because I wanted this to remain really WHITE) and layered on a fabric flower. I made this flower using the same K & Company fabric package (a different piece, obviously! haha!). I made the flower using the same method as I did on this card...using Rae Barthel's tutorial. I stamped the "happy anniversary" sentiment in Frost White ink using PTI's Fillable Frames 4 set. The sentiment was punched using an SU label punch and accented with Silver Rhinestones. I added a Making Memories black and white clip to the top of the fabric as well, to carry through with the black and white theme. The clips were also on clearance! 99 cents for EIGHT! :)
Be sure to visit The Play Date Cafe, link up your creation, and get entered to win a fabulous prize!! We are sending one lucky winner two bottles of Shimmerz Vibez Miniz (that's a lot of z's!)! We'll send Hot Fudge and Razzle Dazzle Berry. These will be in the store SOON at Limelight Papercrafts!
