Play Date and Sweet Sunday Combo

Good afternoon,

Not content with one post today I'm here with another!

This card is a combination of two challenges the Play Date Cafe challenge, which is a challenge all about colour, this week we have a very girly colour combo, of Coral, Petal Pink and Antique Gold.
So I sifted through my Colour Coach to find colours like these and came up with Tango Tangerine, Blushing Bride, ad So Saffron (I don't have any gold so I went for a golden yellow shade)


 The second of the challenges I have used for my card is a sketch from the Sweet Sunday Sketch challenge, I really like the sketches from this challenge site. They are normally quite simple so that you can take them wherever you'd like, here is this weeks sketch.


I really liked the photographs used for the Play Date colour story and was inspired by the dress to use my Sew Lovely stamp set. What do you think?


I used the eyelet border punch for the strips to carry on the fabric theme, I think they look a little like fabric strips.I kept my promise and used several pieces of DSP in this card.

Well that's all from me for today, see you later in the week with some more offerings, xx
