It's been a while since I've participated in any challenges. I've been so busy with other projects at the top of my list, I haven't had time to just 'play'. I've been keeping up with all the challenges though. Everyday I check my favorites and hope that someday I'll get a chance to participate. In fact, I was supposed to be working on designing my cards for my Annual Christmas Card workshop yesterday. When I saw Playdate Cafe's color challenge this week, Avonlea immediately came to mind. Three of the colors featured in one of our newest paper packs, Avonlea (X1755B), are in Playdate Cafe's colors. Avonlea has three trendy colors - Avonlea Teal, Avonlea Green and Avonlea Off-White. I used the Avonlea Green and Teal cardstocks along with Slate Cardstock
The Playdate Cafe Avonlea Paper Pack
I pulled the Raspberry color from our Flirty Paper pack (X7160B) which features another trendy color - Flirty Raspberry. I thought this made a nice complimentary color Avonlea.
My card pattern came from Freshly Made Sketches. Here is my card:
I used a rub-on from the Parlor Velvet Rub-ons (Z1742) and added a 2" butterfly cut from the Artiste Cricut Cartridge (Z1790). "K" Shift <Accent 4>. Final touches - sparkles from the Black and Grey Sparkle Assortment (Z1754) and a sentiment from Words of Comfort (C1524).
