Color Challenge on Play Date Cafe!

If you have been following my blog, you know that I like to participate in the H2H and Mojo Monday weekly blog challenges.   These challenges have really encouraged me to think outside my box and and get creative.   Every once in a while H2H will have a color challenge which I really like.    My friend Mandy found a great color challenge blog last week called Play Date Cafe.    When I checked it out, I knew it was one that I wanted to take part in!

Here is the inspiration for this week's colors.... (LOVE THEM!)


These colors made me think of Close To My Heart's new stamp set called Paper Lantern.  Cool, crisp summer lanterns in Dutch Blue and Gypsy.

Here is my interpretation of these colors:

White Daisy Cards & Envelopes Valu Pack (X254)
Paper Lanterns (C1458)
Dutch Blue Exclusive Ink (Z2119)
Gypsy Exclusive Ink (Z2190)
Black Exclusive Ink (Z2105)
White Textrued Cardstock (retired)
Dutch Blue Cardstock (1241)
Gypsy Cardstock (X5757)
Black Brads - Mini Medley Accents Black Collection (Z1393)
3-D Foam Tape (Z1151)

All products are Close To My Heart products.

Be sure to visit Play Date Cafe and check out all of the wonderful challenge entries this week.  You are sure to be inspired!
