Play Date Cafe Challenge #24

Great minds, as they say, think alike, LOL! :)  I was just finishing up this card and decided to check out The Play Date Cafe before bedtime.... and wouldn't you know, it fit the color challenge perfectly!!  The gorgeous inspiration photo for this week's challenge has colors of plum, lavender, and cream.  Simply luscious!  For this card, I used Cornish Heritage Farms' Botanical Bliss set from the All Things Considered line.  I colored the poppy with Copics, and added a little 7 Gypsies chipboard flourish under the focal point.  I cut the clock from the stamp set into quarters to use as "photo corners."  The patterned paper is from My Mind's Eye's "Carefree" line... I've been hoarding it, I love it so much!  And, there's something a little sneaky about this card, but I can't tell you what for another week or so. ;)  Stay tuned.....
