Yummy Colors in The Play Date Cafe

Here we are again with another unique color combination
for this week's challenge at The Play Date Cafe.

I love how all of these yummy colors just seem to
I found each of the photos in this montage
really beautiful and inspiring.

The challenge this week is sponsored by
and our design team have had the pleasure of playing
with their beautiful stamps.
Both the 'crest' and sentiment are fab images from DeNami.
I created a tone-on-tone background using the crest
and then did a little 'shadow' stamping on the focal point.

Of course, I am joined in The Cafe with a bunch
of very talented designers and this week, we have
Paulina Nakamura of DeNami Design
joining us as our guest.
If you visit their blog, you will get even more
inspiration as their design team are playing
along as well.

Here's who you find designing this week...

and our special guest designer

Hope you will play along this week.
 We'd really love to have you!
