Better Late Than Never...



This past week, I was unable to complete a project for
the current challenge over at The Play Date Cafe.
You may have read that my computer crashed and learning
my way around my very first laptop was pretty time consuming.
Anyway...I managed to get a little something done and wanted
to share it with you just in case you were on the fence
about these wild and crazy colors...


I was totally inspired by a project I spotted in the
current 'CardMaker' magazine and thought it might be
a good way to incorporate the colors.
Most of the DP that was used on this was from
GCD Studios.  The stem is paper from Heidi Grace.
  The leaf images are from Inkadinkado were stamped using 
Ranger's Adirondack ink in 'Caramel'.

Here is a reminder of the 'color story' for this week.....


There is still plenty of time to play along with us.
Stop by The Play Date Cafe and check out the
amazing inspiration from the
world's best design team!
