The Play Date Cafe Challenge #3




I am so glad to be hearing such fantastic feedback for The Play Date Cafe Challenge.  We are on week #3, so spread the word and join the fun!  The design team have been having so much fun working on inspirational projects for you and this week is no exception.

Our host for this week's challenge is Alison.  You will find the story behind the inspiration over at the PDCC blog, so I hope you will visit there next.




In the meantime, this is my take on this week's challenge.

I had to break out my Graphic45 from the 'Comminique Collection' along with a few other odds and ends.  When I thought of these colors together, I immediately thought nostalgia.  The photo is little more off-white than should be, but I had to take the photo in manufactured light, so I guess we will pretend that this tag was at one time a pristeen white that has aged over time as it was found in someone's old scrapbook.



One of my favorite embellishments on this tag is the extra-large polka dot button that didn't quite come out clearly in the photo, but it's there.  I added more dimension with the typewriter keys at glossy chipboard, as well.

Well, get on over to The Play Date Cafe blog and see what the other girls have created to inspire you and then please join the fun!  We love having you play along with us!
