happy 6th Anniversary...PDCC30 45

Mona Pendleton | Wednesday, May 19, 2010 @ 8:57 PM | ,

Hi Everyone! It's Thursday & you know what that means? It's time again for another Creativity Challenge at The Play Date Cafe & it's my turn to choose the color palette for PDCC30 :)
This happy Anniversary card is for my DH :) - we will be celebrating our 6th Wedding Anniversary in early June. While we were shopping at one of my favorite papercrafting stores, he spotted the "love birds" stamp that you see in the upper right hand corner ;) - so of course, I had to use it, especially on this card.

When I saw this beautiful bedding in the Pottery Barn catalog, I immediately thought what a fabulous inspiration photo it would make! So my hubby made it happen :)

I showcased an elegant Melissa Frances sticker inside a label cut with a Spellbinders™ Labels Eight die template. With a few "homespun" embellishments sprinkled about & a lil' stitching, my card was complete.

That's all I have for today :) 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 PDCC30 so we won't miss them! Be sure to see what all The Play Date Cafe DT girls have created, (on my side bar) & our Guest Designer, Maile Belles. I hope you play along with these pretty pastels :) Thanks for looking! Be Sweet :)
