Wishing you Joy...The Play Date Cafe Challenge

I love this time of year with all the bold & bright
colors that are all around.
This week, we are challenging you to play
with this fabulous color combo from

Sarah is our challenge host this week and she is
the voice in my head that is always saying
'come on...just smoosh all the colors together!'
Well....that isn't quite what I did, but I did make these
beautiful colors work and of course, I am
on my Christmas card-kick!

Whenever I struggle with colors that are not easy for me
to put together, I automatically call on my stash of
embellishments and they did not fail me!

I used my Sizzix/BasicGrey Ornament Die to create
that fabby focal point and layered a wonderful purple
rhinestone flourish and a beaded flower brad from
The sentiment was just the right shade of
blue rhinestones and is from Studio18 
and I know you know
my favorite baker's twine from
The Twinery in lilac.

We would love to have you join us this week!
We have such fun meeting and greeting all of
our players and the design team's inspiration...
well...forget about it!  
It's off the chain!

See you in The Cafe!
