Just a Note -- PDCC33


Hello! It's time for another Play Date Cafe challenge. Mona has chosen the gorgeous inspiration photo (from BeddingEnvy.com) above and the colors Raspberry, Aqua, Kraft and White this week.


Our celebrity guest designer/sponsor is Courtney Baker with Practicing Creativity Stamps!


I was long overdue to give my Verve stamps some love, so I pulled out Happy Days and randomly stamped the hibiscus on kraft cardstock to create my background paper. Next, I used detail white embossing powder and heat embossed one hibiscus for my main image. I colored the flower with Copic markers, and I also embossed my sentiment - "Just a Note" (from Accent Notes).

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 PDCC33. And, be sure to visit my PDCC teammates for some wonderful inspiration.
