Love is in the's a Private Blend!

This is a fabulous week over at The Play Date Cafe!
Not only do we have an open design team call going on at the moment, but we also have a new  
Cafe feature with a designer opportunity.

This week, I was totally inspired by The Play Date Cafe's first 
'Private Blend' Designer.

Before I tell you about that inspiration, I want to also thank my friend
Maria has graciously provided this fabulous inspiration photo
for this week's challenge.

Mona Pendleton of Cupcake's Creations is our first
'Private Blend' Designer and her tissue paper flowers are so beautiful.
I decided it was time to make a few of my own 
inspired by her terrific style.

I also managed a little 'Boo' with this project by using flocked DP from
Prima's Nursery Rhyme Collection
and this fabulous Paper Inspirations
stamp that I have had for over five years and had never inked!
The textured hearts were a part of a die cut package that came free with one of my British stamping magazines.

Hope you will take this opportunity to play with these great  
Valentine-y colors over at The Play Date Cafe.  
Head on over and find out how you can be a 
'Private Blend' Designer!

Great choice of colours this week :) Can't go wrong with lavender and the bold pairing with red is gorgeous. This card is beautifully constructed and WOWWW to the flower. Must look at your links to see how it's made, may find myself having a go too. Thx for your comment on my blog (in fact thank you for all your generous comments). Good to know I bring a little silliness wherever I go haha Px
