You're Fabulous

Hello and happy Saturday my friend!  Thanks for popping in, I always appreciate your visits.  Today I have a fun card to share with you using The Play Date Cafe's fabulous color combo of Navy, Bubblegum and Leaf Green!  Phew, this one started out a bit rocky and then I began rearranging things and bingo!  I had myself a card...love when that happens.  I do believe I am finding myself addicted to their fun color combos over at the Cafe!


To start I took a piece of pink striped patterned paper from Echo Parks Dots & Stripes mini pad and adhered it to a white card base.


I then die cut some Enchanted Evening card stock using the Beautiful Blooms dies from Papertrey Ink.  Brushed the edges with Fresh Snow ink and adhered a threaded New Leaf Button to the flower centers.


I stamped my sentiment in Enchanted Evening ink and adhered three pearls underneath to finish it off.


Here is a look at the inspirational pic:


I hope you enjoyed!  Have a wonderful, crafty weekend peeps!

Lindsay
