Hugs and Smiles -- PDCC44


Hello! It's time for another Play Date Cafe challenge! Senior Designer, Sarah, has chosen the inspiration  colors Hot Pink, Navy Blue and Mustard this week. In case you are thinking that these colors don't "go well" together, that is why Sarah has named this a "horribilus" challenge... she invites you to challenge yourself to create something with these colors, which, BTW, really can be put together nicely.. :)

Please welcome back to the Cafe ... our fabulous guest designer, Elise Durenberger!

Our wonderful sponsor this week is Memory Box!





I used some coordinating papers from 3 Basic Grey lines today -- Bittersweet, June Bug and Oliver -- and did some layering of the patterns until I came up with something (hopefully) pleasing to the eye. I used the new Verve set, Kind Words, to stamp the silhouette flowers and the sentiment, Hugs and Smiles. I cut these both out with a Spellbinders Labels Nine die, cutting off the left part of the label so it would align with the left edge of my card.

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 PDCC44. And, be sure to visit my PDCC teammates for some wonderful inspiration.

Guest Designer, Elise Durenberger

  14. Hi Stephanie -
    This is such a pretty card with all the elements so perfectly coordinated. I love the layout with the DPs - what you did with the label is unusual and makes the layout so interesting.
