The Play Date Cafe Challenge (PDCC) --- A Color Challenge!
I just LOVE a new challenge and when I saw this amazing site with challenges I had to play along! I found this gorgeous and inspirational site by following a link through the talented Andrea Ewan's blog. I must say there is nothing I enjoy more than hanging up my laundry on the line outside, winter, spring, summer or fall. I think it's positively therapeutic! And I absolutely love clothes pins; my most prized possessions of clothes pins are these delightful, very old, very weathered, beautiful clothes pins that my best friend, my Grandma, gave to me. When I saw this challenge, I was so inspired to play along ~ Well, this time of year, the borders of my yard look exactly like this card; weathered, gray and brown, with a hint of silvery shine, fragile, flowers ... full of happy memories from the summer.
So I made these two cards for the challenge this morning and I hope you like them. Nothing fancy ... I was going to put a layered flower on the lower left to help close the joy fold, but I'm not feeling it now - let me know what you think. (I'm going to call this my ten pound card because it is so many layers of CTMH textured card stock and weighs a ton! I used CTMH paper and stamps by the way. The card stock is the "back side" of the textured card stock) Thank you so much for looking :) Have a wonderful day!
