Play Date Cafe 95

It's a new week, and a fresh color combo over at The Play Date Cafe - navy, bubblegum, leaf green.....


Lucky for me, I had some pretty patterned paper from Savannah O'Gwynn, my friend and teammate at The Cafe, that matched two of our colors.


This card base is white, so that it's easy to include a message inside.  To the card front, I added a strip of Night of Navy cardstock that was embossed with an Organic Flourish folder from Cuttlebug. 

The sentiment is from Stampin' Up!'s Occasional Quotes, and was heat embossed to give it a crisper image.
The pink ribbon is vintage, from my grandmother's sewing room.  :)  Thank you, Mom-mom!



The center medallion is a 3D sticker from K & Company.  I added the green bling and a white satin bow.

Our sponsor this week is Avocado Arts, which has the most ADORABLE stamps!  You've gotta go check out the prize, plus all the fabulous inspiration from our Design Team HERE

Thanks for joining me today!
