The Play Date Cafe #107




It's colour splash time at The Play Date Cafe this week.  Black and white with a splash of orange.  Here is the colour story...

And here is my 'joyful' Christmas card.  I really love how punchy this card turned out.


I used black and white cardstock, as well as papers from Bo Bunny (Grease Monkey Tread, Grease Monkey Gears, Olivia Nectar) and Kaisercraft.  The alpha stickers are Basic Grey 'bittersweet'.


The snowflake is made from white #10 cotton, and came from this pattern here.  The layout of the card was based on this sketch from Pagemaps:


 Thanks so much for stopping by :)

Hello Fee! So good to see you. :) Thanks for popping by my blog recently. I am definitely feeling better with each passing day. Thank goodness my family helps out with the heavy lifting though. ;)

I am happy to see you crocheted a little snowflake for your card. You always impress me with your knitting and crocheting. THanks so much for playing with us at The Play Date Cafe this week. Take care, Fee!

Hey Fee!! I love that you've used these colours for Christmas! What a great project, love your snowflake! I was only thinking of you earlier. Dawn McVey bought a big fluffy crochet flower from an Etsy Shop that she blogged about. I'm in love!!
