Play Date Cafe - Happiness Always

I made this card for the current Play Date Cafe color challenge. I made the lilac flower from Tim Holtz tissue tape. I watched the video how-to he made and decided to give it a try. Click here if you would like to watch the video. Before I made the flower I colored the tissue tape with Dusty Concord Distress Stain and I used one of his Accoutrements for the center of the flower. Thanks for stopping by!!

Here's my card.

1. Card stock - Very Vanilla, Blue - Stampin' Up
