Play Date Cafe #41

Julie Ranae has challenged us with the colors of Tuscany this week for the Play Date Cafe Challenge #41. Red, yellow, and white are our palette. Hope you all aren't getting tired of all the October Afternoon papers I've been using lately. I can't help it. I LOVE the papers in the Thrift Shop and Fly a Kite collections. Originally this was going to be a 5" x 7" card, but I just couldn't get it to layout anyway that I liked, so I decided to make it an easel card so I could use the lattice border punch as the stopper. I love this stamp, and yes it is an actual woodmounted rubber stamp. :)

Paper: October Afternoon Thrift Shop, DCWV, Recollections cardstock
Stamp: Rubber Stampede Sunflower
Inks+: Derwent Water Color pencils, Scattered Straw Distress Stickles
Tools: Nestabilities Large Scalloped Octagons (S4-187), EK Success 3/4" circle punch, Martha Stewart Garden lattice punch

Miscellaneous: Paper Studio adhesive pearls, Studio 18 Rhinestones, ribbon

Don't forget to get your Papercraft Star project in before noon tomorrow and then come back and vote for your favorite submission.

Thanks for stopping by!

What a very cool idea to slip those ribbons through the lattice, it looks incredible. I thought I would try that color challenge, but I couldn't do it justice like you just did. I am starting to get excited to see what kind of cards you will put together for fall, Halloween and Christmas !
