Pastel Paper Lace – PDCC117

 

 

 

The colors for The Play Date Cafe Challenge were just too wonderful to resist.  I love pastels above all else and even get kidded by my sisters because I wear pastel colors all year ’round.  What can I say?  They make me feel good!

Here is the color challenge photo:

Paper:  Fancy Papers “Simplicity”, K&Co “Tim Coffey”, Martha Stewart; DCWV “Chateau Lavender”.   Inks:  Ranger Distress Weathered Wood, Ranger Distress Stain Picket Fence.Tools:  Spellbinder’s Lace Doily Motifs and Ironwork Motifs.  Embellishments:  Michael’s $1 Bin Pearls, Recollection’s Pearls, Hobby Lobby Ribbon.

I got such beautiful good wishes from other designers I have visited today that I thought I should pass them along.  I hope you have a wonderful evening and a great day tomorrow! Please give me a shout out.  I would love to hear from you!

    Hi Charlotte, this card is so pretty. There are so many “yummy” details on it, from different pearl colors, to layers of die cuts, to the beautiful ribbons. Love it!!

    This is gorgeous! I love your layering and the way your ribbon is the focal point on your card, fabulous! Thanks for joining in the fun with us over at The Play Date Cafe!

    • Thank you! I would have put some dimension between the layers (my personal preference) but I am making a set of note cards for a friend that she intends on mailing. I wanted her to be able to do this without any special packaging. BTW, I love the name ruby2shoes!
