The Play Date Cafe 170 - Sending Well Wishes

Hi there! I finally had some time to play a bit in my craft room. I was also browsing through my favorite blogs and found The Play Date Cafe 170! The color combination is gorgeous! I absolutely loved it and had to join!

When I saw this color combination the first thing I grabbed was PTI's Facy Folk Art stamp set. The colors reminded me of beautiful Moroccan tiles from my best friend's house back home. They had these gorgeous yellow and blue flowers on them. It took me a while to come up with the layout for my card, but I eventually finished it.

The wood grain background and gray door also stuck to me. And I grabbed my favorite "wood" image, the Birch stamp set from Clear and Simple Stamps. I heat embossed it in white against a stone colored cardstock.

I also added a label from PTI's Fabulous Frames on the bottom to balance the flowers above. I punched the sides and slipped jute twine through it and around the card.

The sentiments above and below are from PTI's Everyday Photo Finishers. I thought the font was perfect for the "feel" that I wanted to bring out from the card.

I added a strip of gray cardstock to separate the two portions of the card. I found it lacking and decided to stamp my favorite image from PTI's Embellishments on it in white. I used WPlus9's White Pigment Ink. Have I mentioned how awesome this ink is?!?!?!

 That's all I have for today! I hope you enjoyed this post. Thank you for stopping by! Enjoy your weekend! :)
