Play Date Cafe Color Challenge 17

 
My ATC group is swapping cards this month, using supplies that we swapped at our Christmas meeting.  We all have to incorporate some of our swapped goodies into the cards in some way, and I wanted to make sure these cards are mailable, too. 

I decided to turn to the Play Date Cafe for inspiration, so I'm playing along with the PDCC17 color challenge to use red, brown, and linen.  This is one of my favorite color combos, so it was fun to do, and I got to use some of those scraps that I'm vowing to make use of!  All images are from Cornish Heritage Farms (Bicycle Life, Beautiful, and Haute Couture sets). The linen-textured cardstock is also from CHF.  Thanks to the Playdate gals for all of their inspiration!

Hope you had a great weekend!
