Play Date Cafe 118 - Thanks


Golden Yellow, Pacific and Cobalt are the bright, happy colors this week at The Play Date Cafe.  They totally remind me of sunny, summer days.

I first tried a more vintage style card and completely failed, so I went CAS instead - that's my usual go-to solution for a tricky color combo.


I used Pacific Point, Summer Sun and Brilliant Blue cardstock, punched and layered onto an embossed card base.  The sentiment is Verve - Celebration of Thanks.
