Take a Close Look ...The Play Date Cafe

It's time for another challenge over at

Talk about 'summery' colors, huh?!
I love what Jaclyn Miller, our color story gal
is doing for us each week...always so inspiring!

I went very CAS this week using some 3-D stickers
that I have had in my stash for quite some time.
They are from Paperchase and I love them.

This week, we are welcoming our newest designers
Denise January & Julie Day
I know they will be an inspiration and will bring
their own unique design-style to the challenge.

Denise is also a DT member for our sponsor this week
We are really happy to have Pink Persimmon with us.

So come on by and play...we'd love to have you!!

Today's Project Recipe:
Stamps: 'Hello Beautiful' by Sweet Stamp Shop
Ink:  'Slate' A Muse Studio
Tools: 'Flower Strip' die from Sizzix, Big Shot, Fiskars corner rounder
Embellishments:   '50's Chic' stickers by Paperchase

Oh, this card reminds me of my DD. When she was little, she ADORED wearing her 'Dorothy' ruby red shoes (from Target) anywhere and everywhere. They now reside on her bedroom shelf up high, with the Wizard of Oz figurines she collected. ANd the saying here, "Take a Close look....You're Beautiful" sure reminds me of her, too. I wish *she* could see how beautiful she is!
