This week's Play Date Cafe color challenge was a true challenge for me (and I can't say that about many colors - I love them all). Yellow is a color I don't often use as the main focus of a card; however, once I found my main image, things came together a little more easily. The colors for the challenge were deep yellow, pale yellow, and white. My little moon-sitter is from the new Heartwarming Vintage "Altered Fairies" Creative Scraps..... loooooove them! I knew I wanted to pair her with Cornish Heritage Farms' Astronomy Scrapblock, to give her a proper background. The celestial image is stamped on some old Stampin' Up! patterned paper that had a yellow and white floral motif. Then, since she was looking off to the side and smiling at something.... I needed to give her something to look at! So I decided to go with yellow clip art butterflies, flying out of the flowers beneath her. A bit of diamond Stickles touched everything with moonbeams. Can you tell I ended up having fun with this challenge after all, LOL?
A little reminder before you go..... if you'd like to try out for the Gingersnap Creations Design Team.... there's still time!! Click on the Design Team Call badge in the column to the right for all the details. I can tell you, it is soooo much fun to be on this team. The gals are fabulous to work with, and I am in total awe of their work every day. You'll know about the challenges well in advance, so there's no time pressure to get your projects completed (unless of course you're like me, and need two days to find your desktop before you start working, then lose the product you want to use, then stamp crooked, and then.... well, I still usually manage to get stuff done on time anyway, LOL!!). Try it. You'll like it. :)
