The Play Date Cafe #183

Welcome to this week's color challenge at The Play Date Cafe. This week our colors are Navy, Emerald and School Bus. I actually made a card this week - it felt good!! I moved into my parents house last week and I almost have my crafty stuff stored in a way that I can get to everything and I know where most things are. It's the best I've had it in months. For my card I pulled out the American Crafts Glitter Tape. I alternated the green and blue tape for the background. Then I found a little yellow polka dot envelope that is the perfect size for a gift card and added a strip of glitter tape the envelope and then dressed it up a little with these awesome pearl accents provided to us by Elizabeth Mindemann from Close to My Heart. I liked that they had sticky backs and weren't brads. It made them so easy to use. Our lucky winner this week will win a Close To My Heart prize provided by the very generous Elizabeth.
