Play Date Cafe 127 - Bicycle Thanks



Daffodil, hydrangea, kiwi and cherry - our bright, primary palette this week at The Play Date Cafe. 

You know me, I shy away from brights, so again I turn to lots of white with just shots of color:


The bicycle, basket and chevron stripe come from Market Street Stamps, "Riding By".  I won this set last month and this is my first chance to use it.  Love it!  The sentiment is Hero Arts.

I made a set of these for my girls to use.  They are flat - great for mailing - and I only added that little bit of twine for this card you see.  I thought it looked a little plain for blogging.  ;-)


Our sponsor this week is Simon Says Stamp:


We hope you come play with us.  We'd love to see what *you* will create!

Thanks for coming by today.  I always appreciate your visit.



Dimensions: 4.25" x 5.5"
Stamps: Riding By - Market Street Stamps; Everyday Sayings - Hero Arts
Paper: white - PTI
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black - Tsukineko
Fibers: Maraschino twine - The Twinery

CAS perfection! And not at all too plain for blogging, I hope. Seems like there are a lot of "less is more" folks out there and this is their kind of inspiration. I love that you do all styles of cards and enjoy all of them.
