Play Date Cafe 125 - Inspired by Bedding

One morning, my daughter was on the computer and logged onto Kmart's home page.  Bedding was on the first page, and though I couldn't see the picture clearly from where I sat, an idea was born for this Play Date Cafe challenge:  Color Splash using Brown.


I ADORE this image Jax found!  It's one of the neatest bunny drawings I've ever seen.

Here's my Christmas-in-Spring card:


I used the ornament from Flourishes' All That Glitters, and the sentiment from Paperwhites.  The single brown ornament was stamped on a scrap piece of white cardstock, colored, trimmed and popped up on foam dimensional stickers.

Some lace and bling were in order, too:


Our sponsor this week is The Twinery.  Don't you just looove those gorgeous twine colors they sell?

I can't wait to see what you all do with this week's colors.  I believe I could do a dozen more cards in this palette!

Thanks for joining me.  :-)

That is a wonderful picture. It reminds me of a picture I saw as a child in a book at my Grandma's house. I would never have thought to do a Christmas card with these colors, but it really works well. I love how the ornament is hanging on the card!
