Just a Splash...PDCC25 44

Mona Pendleton | Wednesday, April 14, 2010 @ 8:57 PM | , ,

Hi Everyone! Time for another Creativity Challenge at The Play Date Cafe. This week Sarah chose the splash of colors & this photo to hopefully get you inspired to play along with the PDCC25 challenge:

Here is my take:

I tried to stay true to the challenge & just use a splash of orange - what better way than to plant a Prima rose? :)

I stamped the background image using the Music Background stamp from Rubber Stampede. The lil' sheet of music was stamped using a Prima stamp that my DH surprised me with :) I simply stamped that image, then using a Fiskars scissors trimmed around the edges to give it a decorative border.

Thanks so much for looking! Be Sweet!

I hope you can join along with this week's creativity challenge. After you have made your project, please head on over to The Play Date Cafe & link your post. If you post your creations in an on-line gallery, please label it PDCC25. Be sure to see what all The Play Date Cafe DT girls have created, (on my side bar) to share with you for inspiration! I hope you are able to join along with this week's challenge.
