Playdate Cafe Challenge

Hooray for Friday! It is gloomy and rainy today in SD, which is fine by me, it is quite a nice change. Might have to put some soup on for dinner tonight, if this keeps up! The card I am sharing today is one that I did for this weeks Playdate Cafe Challenge .  Here is the picture for this weeks color palette...


Gray, Yellow and Pink!  These are vey soft colors and this is definitely not my comfort zone.  I like dark, rich colors, myself, so I have a hard time knowing what to do with colors like this.  Buried deep in my paper stash, I found a pad of papers that have been in there for a couple of years.  In it there were some floral papers that fit the colors for the challenge. 


I cut strips from the floral papers to make the background which I adhered to a gray card base.  Used the same gray cardstock to make the strip across the front.  I scored lines on it just to give it some extra texture/dimension.  The woman in the tub and the sentiment stamps are all from an old TAC set called 'Rub-a-dub-dub'.  I colored the main image with my Prismacolor Pencils.  The sentiment is stamped with pink and black ink. 

If you like challenges, you should really check these out.  Can't wait to see what everyone else does with these colors.

Happy Friday,

Michelle
