Play Date Cafe # 64


Really pretty colours again at The Play Date Cafe challenge this week, and this card seemed really easy to put together.  The hardest thing was getting a reasonable photograph on a dull and dreary day!




































Yesterday DH and I went to visit the local garden center for a little trip out and while we were there we had a hot chocolate in the cafe, the center is having a new cafe built and so while the building works are going on the drinks were served in paper cups.  As soon as I saw the corrugated Kraft coloured holders I knew I could recycle them,  hence the corrugated card in the design.  The flower is made from a piece of old lace that I stitched along the edge of and gathered. Its an old button as well so lots of recycling going on today!!

Hope you are enjoying your weekend and thanks so much for all the lovely comments you are leaving, I even had a tweet about this card last week which was very exciting!
