After hours on my craft table...

Hello. After days of previews and design team challenges, I finally had some time to play. I saw the color combination in The Play Date Cafe and I had to join. My mojo wasn't up for it though. I was sitting at my craft table for hours wasting paper, ink and a whole lot of other things. Finally, I gave up and left...and went to our local AC Moore! They had a whole bunch of My Mind's Eye 6 x 6 patterned paper pads for $3.99 and they were all 40% off! I felt like a kid in a candy store! The patterned papers are so pretty, it was all the inspiration I needed. 

Here's the inspirational photo from The Play Date Cafe 128.


Here's what an hour in AC Moore and a whole lot of My Mind's Eye patterned paper pads produced.





I missed using my Papertrey Ink supplies so I wanted to fill this card with as much Papertrey Ink goodness as possible. I used Rosie Posie, Simply Jane and Sweet Love stamp sets.


I die cut the flowers and the frame and stamped the images on them. Then I just layered them over one another in different levels. The patterned papers I used on this card were from my new My Mind's Eye 6 x 6 patterned paper pads. 


That's all I have for today. I have my eye on some other challenges. Hopefully I have enough time to join them! Thanks for visiting today! I'll see you all soon!
