Play Date Cafe and a card from Dawn!


Woo Hoo would you believe it I found an hour to have a play today and managed to make this card for the current Play Date Cafe Challenge, not colours I would normally use but hey ho love a Challenge!!!!

 Here is a close up of the flower, to brighten it up a bit I have glued on a few seed beads with Glossy Accents to look like dew!

This is the challenge inspirational photograph but I am really bored of Christmas cards, it had to be a Thank You instead.  I will also enter this in the current Hero Arts challenge.

I was lucky enough to receive this stunning card today in the post all the way from Dawn in New Zealand, isn't it stunning,  Thanks so much Dawn I love it!!
Really must do some more jobs now before the big day.  Have a great time everyone.
Hugs

Glad you like it Sally.... and that it arrived in time for Christmas... was worried with all your winter weather, it might not have made it!!! Have a great day with the family Sally.

Dear Sally
I really like your cards, especially the one that has butterflies and music, two of my favorite things. I am learning to use my spellbinder dies and like them so much.
