The Play Date Cafe #155


Welcome to this weeks Color Challenge from The Play Date Cafe. This week our gorgeous color story is Mint, Gold and Leather. You could make some gorgeous fall and holiday cards with these colors. This week our awesome sponsor is Technique Tuesday and they generously sent the members of the PDCC design team new stamp sets to play with. I got this amazing set designed by one of my favorite crafty friends, Teri Anderson the set is called Twinkle On. I just love it! And, I had such a fun time working with these stamps and colors. Teri is also our Guest Designer this week, so be sure to check out her card and leave her some love.

On a sad note, this week we are saying good bye to our long-time DT Member Ruby. Her life has taken a new turn lately and she is focusing on other things. I was a player long before I was a member of this design team and I have always loved visiting Ruby's blog and checking her unique style of card making. She will be greatly missed and we all wish her the very best in her future endeavors. We'll miss you Ruby!!

Now, for my card. I had nothing in mind when I started making this card - it just sort of developed organically and I really like it. I used Crate Paper Peppermint papers and border stickers. The light green background paper is from Echo Park -Merry & Bright.  I embossed the stars on the trees using a color called Pirate Gold. It's a little darker than gold, but I thought it went well with these colors. I stamped the trees in Wild Wasabi ink from Stampin' Up and added Gold Stickles to the tree. I stamped the sentiment and tree trunks in Ranger Archival Sepia.
