The Play Date Cafe #140

Welcome to our latests color challenge at The Play Date Cafe. This week our colors are Caribbean Blue, Shoreline and Sunshine. For my card, I used my Stampin' Up Pennant punch for the banner and attached it to the card with twine. I found some papers that I thought matched the colors almost perfectly and I colored the letters with a Copic marker. 

1. Card stock - Swiss Dots (Bazzill Basics), Lauderdale (Hero Arts), Out of Print (Basic Grey)
2. Letters - American Crafts
3. Twine - Dialy Junque (Pink Paislee)
4. Button Candy Dots (Pebbles)
5. Pennant Punch (Stampin Up)
6. Copic Marker -Duck Blue

You should come play with us this week. One lucky winner will get a great prize from Simon Says Stamp.

We have another great guest designer joining us this week - the uber talented Teri Anderson! Teri is one of my favorite designers and I love visiting her blog for inspiration. Be sure to click here and check out her blog and leave her some love.

  2. Hi Donna, just stopping by to say how delightful your blog is. Thanks so much for sharing. I have recently found your blog and am now following you, and will visit often.

  3. How perfect is that background paper! Darling little buttons and wonderful banners. Amazing job with the colors.

  4. wow, interesting color combo...I don't think I have any of these colors but I'm going to see if I can come up with something similar by diluting some inks that I do have. Fun this!

  5. Super fun use of the challenge colours, nothing like a great banner!

  6. This is so bright and happy, Donna! And your background paper couldn't possibly be any more perfect! Great job!

  7. Yay, I nearly did a pennant (or banner as we call them over here in the UK). Fun card, really cheery!

  8. Such a happy card! I LOVE the twine, penants and patterns. Fabulous design!
