PDCC One Year Anniversary!!

Hello! Today we are celebrating the One Year Anniversary of the Play Date Cafe Challenge with PDCC52! Julie invited a few PDCC alumni to come back and play along, and of course I said yes! She chose a beautiful pastel palette (see above), which is open to your interpretation. I used light yellow, pale peach, light pink and white.

This special challenge is sponsored by Unity Stamps and Cosmo Cricket. In addition, the Unity DT will be playing along. Each day of this week's challenge until the challenge deadline (next Tuesday at midnight EST), the PDCC blog will spotlight some creations by the Unity design team. You won't want to miss any of it!

With all the fall and Christmas cards that I have been making, this was a refreshing color combination for me to work with! I used one of the newest Verve sets, Many Blessings. I stamped the smallest flower 3 times, then I added the sentiment on the same panel. I pieced the flowers with the same Bitty Dot patterned paper, added the same colored pearl to the center and added some light green to the leaves. For my layout I used one of Mercy's sketches from a few weeks ago, MTSC94.

Be sure to visit the Play Date Cafe blog for more details on this anniversary challenge and to see all the designers' creations!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
