An Upcycled Mother's Day

Hello everyone!  It's time for another Play Date Cafe challenge!  We've softened the colors from last week a bit.  ;-)


The colors - as named by Jaclyn Miller, our color story coordinator - are Raspberry, Harbor and Honey Mustard.


This went together pretty quickly:  a blue card base, fluffy blue ribbon, and an upcycled-tag from the clothing store, Hollister.  I saw all three colors in that tag, but tried to cover up the tag's wording with chipboard pieces from Girls' Paperie.


The tag is mounted on a piece of raspberry cardstock, edges punched.  Real, honest-to-goodness bakery twine was used in the making of this tag!  (yum.)

Our sponsor this week is Mr. Cricut Crazy --

Check out the fab prize at The Play Date Cafe, and be inspired by all the creative goodness our team has to offer you.  :-)

Thanks for popping by!  I'll be around to visit your blogs when my mom goes back home this weekend.  In the meantime, we're shoppin' til we're droppin', and visiting extended family, too.  It's so much fun to see my mom again (it's been almost two years since our last visit).

Other: blue ribbon - Stamp Simply Ribbon Store; Deco Fan punch - Martha Stewart; chipboard letters - Girls' Paperie; pearl; metal clip - Mark's Finest Papers; tag - Hollister jeans
