The Play Date Cafe #98

Hello, there!  What a busy weekend it's been!  This is my first chance to get to the computer all weekend!  Before I go get ready for another busy week, I wanted to stop in and share the card I made for this week's color challenge at The Play Date Cafe.  The colors this week were teal, mustard and dark blue.

Here is the inspiration photo:

Here is the card I made for the challenge:

I must admit I was a little intimidated by this color combo.  I couldn't quite figure out at first how to incorporate the navy/dark blue. I started with a card base of the beautiful new SU In Color, Island Indigo.  I layered with patterned papers from the DCWV Mariposa 12x12 pad (top panel) and the Basic Grey Black Tie collection (bottom panel). I stamped the label frame from Gina K, Designs Lovely Labels 2 set with Broken China Distress Ink and cut it out with Spellbinders Labels Fourteen Nestabilities.  The sentiment from Gina K. Designs Hugs and Prayers set was stamped in the frame with Chipped Sapphire DI.  I colored some adhesive pearls a mustard color with a Copic marker.  I finished my card wth a double loop bow of navy satin and a Prima flower I airbrushed to match the mustard shade.

Thanks for stopping by!   I hope to see you soon!
