This week Ruby2shoes has brought a challenging colour story to The Play Date Cafe - I say challenging, as mixing brights and pastels is something I wouldn't normally do ;)
I have created something a little different this week, and you will have to look carefully to see that soft pastel lilac type colour on my baby card. See if you can spot it around the greeting, and also I used milled lavender DI to stamp the Ippitiy 'A Bit of Burlap' to give my background some detail.
The real feature of my card is that awesome crocheted coral rose flower in hot pink. I made that using two different size cottons (#10 and #5) and am really happy with how it turned out. The images and the quote are from Darkroom Door 'Hello Baby' products.
Here are a couple of pictures of the flower before they were attached to the card..
Our sponsor is Mark's Finest Papers this week - why not try out these colours for yourself, and be in the running for a terrific prize!
Thanks for popping along to visit my blog :)
NOTE: I found this pattern on Ravelry.com, but you need to be a member to access it, so I am passing credit to Linda Skuja on her blog here if you would like to see the pattern for yourself. Thanks Linda I really had fun making this flower!
