Play Date Cafe Challenge #28

Squeaking in just under the wire, with a Play Date Cafe Color Challenge #28 entry.  I always space, and think that the deadline is Wednesday, when it's really Tuesday.  Anyway, it's so good to be back playing again at this wonderful challenge.  Take a look at this gorgeous inspiration photo!  I simply couldn't resist. 

For my card, I've used lots of images from Oxford Impressions' The Fairest Flower plate.  I was recently blessed with blog candy *and* a discount from Suzanne Melvin, founding femme of Oxford Impressions, and believe me I took full advantage, LOL!! Thanks so much, Suzanne!  I know this will be one of my all-time favorites.  I also used the Vintage Chintz backgrounder from Cornish Heritage Farms, and an old music image from Anna Griffin for All Night Media.  And of course, I had to add some crinkly ribbon from Bluebird Lane etsy shop (the perfect vintage pink).

Sorry for the double post today (after spacing for a bit last week, LOL!).  We have a slight lull in our schedule, so I'm hoping to do lots of crafting this week, since next week isn't looking so good, time-wise. :(  Have a great evening.
