The Play Date Cafe Challenge #87

Hi there! Would you believe I stamped? To be honest, I can't. HA! Movers come on Friday and as of Wednesday night, I still haven't figured out what I'm letting them pack vs what I'm packing myself. Oops! (*Can anyone say PROCRASTINATION??*) But anyway, this week's Play Date Cafe colors were too lovely and the goodies from Stampendous too wonderful not to find some time to stamp!!

I was primarily inspired by the image in the lower left corner of Jax's fabby color story when making this card. I got out my beloved Claudine Hellmuth Studio Paints and played with the background. Have I mentioned lately how much I adore those paints??? Well I do. I used a gorgeous Dragonfly Vine image from Stampendous, but sadly it's sooooo hard to get a decent photo of it. I embossed it in glitter EP and it just doesn't want to play nice with my camera! Here's a close-up, but still hard to see...

Jax's color story this week could also make for a fantastic July 4th card, I'm thinkin'!

A huge thanks to Stampendous for sponsoring this week's challenge!

Now head on over to the Play Date Cafe blog to check out what my teammates created with these colors, meet our guest designer, see last week's winner list and find out about this week's fabby prize!!

Thanks for stopping by today!

  6. I LOVE it when you get your paints out Libby, such a fun card, really artsy as Fiona said. I love how all of our dragonflies turned out so different. All the best with your move, I bet you can't wait to get to the end of it all now.
