Inspired by Cath Kidston

Are you ready to be inspired by yummy springtime colors?

It's time for a new challenge in The Cafe.

Inspired by the Cath Kidston designs in the color story,
I called upon my stamps, inks and papers from A Muse Studio.
I stamped the pink-dotted background and layered in on top
of the beautiful blue gingham paper.
I created little flag-tags to match.
