Happy Birthday to the PDCC!!

Have you heard? The Play Date Cafe has turned 3!! I'm honored to be here today as an Alumni Guest, helping them celebrate.

I'm not gonna lie, the colors were a tad bit of a challenge - but that's what makes it a fabulous challenge, yes? Here they are:

I chose this pretty flower from the Hero Arts + BasicGrey Floral Blossoms set. I did a whole bunch of fussy cutting to paper-piece the flowers in PDCC colors. I added some fun dimension, too:

I finished it all off with Stickles, Enamel Accents and a bunch of Hero Arts gems.

The PDCC has always been a unique challenge for two reasons: They encourage you as a player to 'interpret the colors' as YOU see them and they welcome pretty much ANY type of project - from cards to layouts, knit, crochet & sewing, mixed-media and even cupcakes!

From October 18-22, you can enjoy inspiration from other returning design team members as well as the current PDCC team, prizes from a variety of sponsors and additional giveaways for becoming a follower of the challenge and for displaying their brand new badges!

I hope you will join me in congratulations The Play Date Cafe by playing along. It's going to be an exciting celebration!
