Is everyone ready for the weekend?! I hope you all have some exciting plans. I think mine will involve doing some washing and cleaning as my other half is working :( Ah well, at least everything will be clean!
I'm here today with a card that combines the colour scheme at the Play Date Cafe this week and a sketch from Viva La Verve. Originally, I made this card based on the sketch for week 4 by Andrea. It was a bit fussy for me so I decided to simplify it. When I'd finished my card, I realised that it was almost exactly what was required for the first weeks' sketch by Amber which has had me stumped!! How bizarre! So, I'm using this card as my week 1 entry instead and I'll have another go at Andrea's sketch over the weekend maybe - I might even attempt to keep all the layers - maybe! ;)
I am also entering this for the challenge over at CAS-ual Fridays - it's been such a long time since I participated in this challenge, which is crazy since it was the reason I started my blog in the first place!! I just had to join in :) The challenge this week is BIRTHDAY!!! I can see there being a plethora of entries for this challenge! It's open for a little longer than usual and it's all in aid of Michele's birthday! Happy Birthday Michele!!
Here's Amber's sketch...
...the awesome Play Date Cafe colours...
...the CAS-ual Fridays theme...
...and my card...
Now, the pink and yellow are MUCH brighter than that in real life...can I get the colours to come through on my photo's...NO! Doh! They are much more like the mood board colours, so you'll just have to imagine for now! :)
This card came together pretty quickly, especially for me...it usually takes me an inordinate amount of time! I love these colours but I don't think I would've been brave enough to have put them together myself - I love challenges :)
Thanks for stopping by and a big hello and welcome to my new followers and commenters - you make my day! ;)
