The Play Date Cafe Challenge #78 (and more)

Good afternoon!  I hope you've had a great day so far!  It's been a busy one for me, but I still wanted to pop in and share a card I made for a couple of challenges.  First, it is for this week's challenge in The Play Date Cafe.  Here is the inspiration photo for the challenge:


My card is also for this week's challenge on Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge Blog.  The theme this week was "Carnival".  The theme tied in with a fun blog hop - the Mo's and Zo's Carnival Hop - where the amazingly talented design teams from Mo's Digital Pencil and Zoe's Make it Crafty got together and shared their creations inspired by the carnival.    You'll definitely want to check this out!

Anyway, here is my card for both challenges:


I started with a card base of Papertrey Pure Poppy and layered with SU Cool Caribbean.  I found these fun patterned papers from Daisy Bucket (Love You and Playful Petals) in my stash and they matched so well with the PDCC colors and patterns!  I merged the Candy Cart image from Make it Crafty (flipped horizontal) with the super cute Cotton Candy image from Mo's. Cotton Candy is a very special image - if you purchase the image from Mo's Digital Pencil during the Carnival Hop, Mo and Zoe are donating 100% of the proceeds to the US and UK Make A Wish Foundations!  How cool is that?  Back to my card - the images are colored with Copic markers.  I added some Red, Aqua and Pink Stickles to the candy cart and lightly sponged some clouds in the background. A couple of flowers and a bow from my stash finished it.

Thanks for stopping by!  I'll be back soon with some other things I've been working on!
