Play Date Cafe Challenge 18 - A Splash of Color

 

I was so excited to open my email this morning and see that I'd won a spot on Play Date Cafe's Fab 4 for last week's challenge! Thanks so much to Julie Ranae, Julie, Sarah, and Mona for the honor and especially for the inspiration!  This week's 'Color Splash' challenge is to use black and white with a splash of teal - isn't this inspiration photo gorgeous?  For my card, I went with this vintage bluebird image from Artistic Outpost's Blue Bird plate for the focal image.  All of the background stamps are from Cornish Heritage Farms (Beautiful and Vintage Chintz), and the little "Fragile" label is from Stampington.  This color combo is so fun to play with for spring.  You can check out the designers' wonderful creations HERE, and play along, too.  Thanks for stopping by!
