Joy

Beautiful colours at the Playdate Cafe this week:
 I think the colours are gorgeous, but I wasn't sure how to put them together.  I had a look in my tin of ATC "blanks" and found some tri-fold cards that I had never used, so I decided to give it a whirl:


The background is coloured with a combination of Distress Inks and Adirondack Ink, then overstamped with stamps from Clarity, Lavinia and My Mind's Eye.
I painted some card with Claudine Hellmuth paints and punched out my flowers, then added some inked old book page strips for the border.
The sentiment is by Elusive Images.
I love this combo ( did I mention that before? Lol!), it's really bright and cheerful.

Have a good weekend.  We're going treat shopping in a minute - woo hoo!

Thank you Playdate Cafe, and thanks for looking.  X
