A Play Date at Sweet Stop

Good Afternoon,

Surprise, surprise I've been looking at more challenges and I've got another combo for you today. When I got comments left on my blog I always try and get back to that person to leave a comment back. I had a comment left by a lovely lady and when I went to find the blog it came from I found a new challenge that I hadn't found before, it's called the Sweet Stop challenge and each week a new sketch is uploaded for us to have a go at. I have a long list of cards to my on my desk for my mum and on it was a card for my grandad so I thought that the colour combo on Play Date Cafe would be perfect for his card.

It was also an excuse for me to ink up a new stamp set that I've got called Plane and Simple, it's a really great set for men's cards, and even includes three very useful sentiments too!

So here is the sketch that I've followed


and the fabulous colour combo, can see this one being a firm favourite for men's cards,


So here is what I've come up with  for my combination of these two challenges


 continuing my quest to use DSP in my cards, I have used a piece of Blueberry Crisp DSP for one layer of this card, stamped-off a border of two the elements in the stamp set. My boyfriend even liked this one so that's my man approval, normally I just get a half hearted 'it's nice' but he actually took this one and had a good look, so it must be OK.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend, xx

Oh Kelly, the colors and vintage images on your card are just perfect for a masculine card! I'm sure your grandad will love it! So glad you stumbled upon The Sweet Stop and hope you'll continue to play along!
