Just Peachy...PDCC32 44

Mona Pendleton | Wednesday, June 2, 2010 @ 8:57 PM | , , ,

Hi Everyone! It's Thursday & you know that means it's time for a new color challenge at The Play Date Cafe. Sarah chose this week's pretty pastel color palette for us all to create with. Limelight Papercrafts is offering a prize of sorts, so please be sure to visit The Play Date Cafe for complete details.
I tried something new on this card! I have been inspired by all the fancy ribbon treatments that I have seen many fellow designers creating out there in blogosphere, I thought I would give one a try! I layered a piece of lace & ribbon, then stitched it on my card. My stitching is a bit crooked but with a little practice, it may improve. Like I have said before, can't be afraid to try something new :) Using one of my new fave techniques, embossing & stenciling a Spellbinders™ die template, I created the butterfly embellishment & topped it off with a hand crocheted fleurette made by my sis Tina :)
Aren't those soft tender roses that seem to be peeping through harsh, cold snow just beautiful. I have experienced this before while growing up in Buffalo, NY! We would just pray that the flowers & vegetation would survive after Mother Nature decided to drop more snow after Spring had Sprung :(

I chose to showcase this lovely sentiment from the Waltzingmouse Afternoon Tea Sentiments set in an ornate frame made using a Spellbinders™ Labels Four die as my focal point. Not so many words, but speaks volumes! Thanks for looking at my creation :)

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 PDCC32 so we won't miss them! Be sure to see what all The Play Date Cafe DT girls have created, (listed on my side bar) as well as our Guest Designer, Jen del Muro & the Limelight Papercrafts DT. I hope you come join the fun! Be Sweet!
