PDCC# 82

Just a quick post tonight with my entry for the current Play Date Cafe colour challenge.  This is a fairly simple card all made around the pretty blue flower I had in my stash.  The Kraft card has been stamped with the Hero Arts Birthday definition stamp, the PP's are from My Mind Eye and and Prima. I have just added some machine stitching and distressing to the edges of the papers.


















This is the inspiration photograph set by Ruby, such a great photo.

Another one where my comment went AWOL! I love the pale stamped background and your paper strips with the sewing! And that pop of colour from the flower just finishes off this card so beautifully!
