The Play Date Cafe Challenge #10

I am so thankful when it comes to a blog 'makeover', you get to try and try and try until you fall in love with what you've done.  Now the problem with all that trying is it usually takes up an entire day of being at the computer, but I think it's just another form of creativity.  I love shabby chic and the romantic colors, so I hope you enjoy it while it never know when it might be changed again!
      So the sneak peek above is to whet your appetite for these luscious colors for this week's Play Date Cafe Challenge.  I LOVE THEM!  The inspiration comes by way of The UK this week, so get on over and see what the fabulous PDCC Design Team
put together to inspire you.

I didn't use nearly as much brown in fact, it's just the base of my card.  But I thought the other elements of this Valentine's card worked really well for the challenge.

The focal point is vintage sheet music from the 1940's.  Also vintage are the foils that were recycled from very old baby shower decorations.  Remember the tissue paper garlands that pulled out to spell 'Congratulations'?  I managed to purchase a number of these awhile back and loved die-cutting them for these hearts.
I used the Damask EF for the silver metallic layer and fabulous turquoise glitter on a chipboard letter.
The die cut tag is from 'Snowed In' by My Mind's Eye.

In an effort to stick with the goal of using more of my older paper collections, I will do my best to share those by name, when I can.  This card uses pretty pinks from Making Memories' 'Sabrina' Collection.
That's one down...many, MANY more to go!

This card is currently for sale in my Etsy Shop.

Go...have fun with this challenge!
Let's see if we can get a record 
number of players this week!

I LOVE the fan and the foil hearts, Julie. Guess what? I had that blog background for about 10 min and couldn't find the header, so I changed it to the one I have now. :D
Great minds think alike. I love it! Beautiful.

Communication ? by that I mean how well does your vet communicate with you?Will he or she explain the condition or illness in terms that you can easily understand, or do they try to confuse you with high-tech or medical jargon? A good vet will go over treatment options with you, explain necessary tests, review x-rays or test results, give complete and clear instructions for home care or further testing requirements, etc Sharing knowledge also provides solutions to problems And power was given to them over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword, with hunger, with death, and by the beasts of the earthWhen we slow down and observe our thoughts closely, we will sometimes uncover gifts and talents we didn't know we had
