The Play Date Cafe 161




Welcome to our new color challenge at The Play Date Cafe. This week we have some fun, funky and festive colors - Evergreen, Gum Drop and Candy Cane Red. I just love these colors and I decided to make a funky and bright card this week. My colors aren't spot on, but I can say I was definitely inspired by this awesome color story.

I die cut the tree from grunge paper and colored it with a new Tim Holtz Distress stain - Pickled Raspberry. Then I added various red brads for ornaments. There is more contrast between the pink and red in person. The papers are Snow Day from Crate Paper and the sentiment is a SRM Sticker. I had those bright red snowflakes in my stash.

I'm also entering this card into the Cupcake Craft Challenge. Their theme this week is Merry Christmas so this fits the bill.
