First Time for The PDCC!

Hi everyone,

I'm giving the Play Date Cafe Challenge a try for the first time. We are to use black and white with a splash of lilac. I ended up using more than a splash, but lilac is such a pretty color, I couldn't stop adding more of it! Here is the card I made, using the beautiful Flower Bird Garden cling stamp from Hero Arts.



I had the pretty pins that were both white and colored one of them a light purple with a Copic marker. The metal butterfly is actually a magnet that can be removed from the card.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful Saturday!

This seems to be a popular Challenge!
The colours are wonderful and your card especially so, the decorative pins and your lovely Bow, your lovely image and of course the "Butterfly".
How these wonderful creatures add to a card, where would we be without them!

This is just outstanding. I love the more than splash of lilac as you put it, lol! and your embossing is amazing. I so looove that butterfly, it looks so lifelike. Play Date Cafe should feel so honoured to have your card in the pool of players. Big Hugs. We have loads of snow here too Barb and just want to say be safe and stay warm. Big Hugs.
