Blessings -- PDCC29


Hello! It's time for another Play Date Cafe challenge. Sarah has chosen the fun inspiration photo above and the colors Lime Green, Leaf Green and Very Pale Blue this week.

Please welcome our Celebrity Guest Designer... Heidi Van Laar.

Lisa is our hostess for the week.


For my card today, I used Basic Grey Kioshi to come up with some colors somewhat close to Sarah's inspiration photo. My stamp is from Verve's Blessings. I used the largest die from the Spellbinders Nestabilities Deckled Rectangles. While the white cardstock was still inside the die, I sponged some Spring Rain ink into the center. Finally, I stamped the Irish Blessing in Versafine Onyx Black. I used foam tape to pop it onto my card.

Here's a detail shot:


Are you ready to play along? We'd love to see your creations! Be sure to go over to the Cafe and link your post. If you use an online gallery, please use the keyword PDCC29. And, be sure to visit my PDCC teammates for some wonderful inspiration.
