The Play Date Cafe Challenge #68

It's Play Date Cafe time, and this week Julie has picked one of my favorite go-to color combos!

Ahhhh kraft and pink, how I love you. Do you remember my phase a while back when almost EVERYTHING I posted was kraft and pink? LOL! I even used it on Courtney's birth announcements, remember? Hopefully this week's challenge won't kick me into another kraft and pink obsession. But, I make no promises on that... ;-) Isn't Julie's color story gorgeous?? Ok, there's a slight chance I may have gotten too hung up on KRAFT when I should have added more of an ivory type of color. Le Sigh. I couldn't help myself. :-)

For my card this week, I stamped the gorgeous Hero Arts Leaf Clusters in white on kraft. Stitching, big satin bow, polka dots, scallops - a pretty predictable Libby card, I suppose. :-)

Well please do yourself a favor, check out what my PDCC sisters were up to. They are not at all predictable, they amaze me with something spectacular every week!! (Ok, perhaps they are predictable in their awesomeness!)

Julie Ranae * Sarah Anderson * Savannah O'Gwynn * Ruby 2 Shoes * Andrew Ewen * Fiona Shultz * Jaclyn Miller * Jinny Newlin * Michele Gross * Tracey Kuzniak * Colleen Dietrich

And this week we have a very exciting special guest joining us, Kazan Clark. Yes, *THE* Kazan Clark. I cannot believe I've got a Kevin Bacon link to her greatness now, woohoo!! ;-)
