Colour Challenge at The Play Date Cafe

I love The Play Date Cafe Challenge blog - it always has such interesting colour combinations in it's challenges - this week it's a lovely combination of CHARCOAL, ASH and BUTTER. As I still need to do loads of Mother's Day cards I used these colours for a handbag card. This image from the Digistamp Boutique is one of my favourites.

I've matted the image onto a scallopped square, then onto an embossed background. I've decoupaged the flowers on the handbag and used diamantes in the middle of them. A matching buttercup yellow ribbon finishes the clean and simple look. I didn't have any paper of the right shade of yellow so for the matted edging, I coloured some white scraps with the same promarker that I used on the flowers so everything matched.


  1. Fabulous card...hope you'll link up with me at 52 Card Pickup!
