PDCC80 & CPS217

As soon as I saw the colors for this week's Play Date Cafe challenge, I knew I wanted to play along.  However, time isn't on my side lately and I'm almost late to the party on this challenge.  I also combined it with the CPS sketch for this week as well (I did take the liberty to "adjust" it a bit!).  Paper Smooches is the sponsor of both......great idea to use my Friendly Flowers stamp set!!  The colors on this card just make me want to sing that song....feeling "Hot Hot Hot", drink a margarita, and be back on a cruise!  (it's been so hot here in Kansas the past few days....makes me long for a beach!)



I colored my sentiment and my flowers using Copics.  I kinda like the flowers not "all" colored in.....Yes, I meant to not color them in.  :)  Have a wonderful day!

What a fun card Amy! Oh my I love what you did with those colors! Fun fun fun girl! It isn't that hot here but I am sure dreaming of a beach too!

Such a great take on both challenges, Amy! LOVE what you've done with the gradient effect on the sentiment! And gracious! I know what you mean about the heat! Why do we always seem to have such short falls and springs? Anyway, thanks so much for playing along with us this week at The Play Date Cafe, girl!

I like how you only colored part of the flowers! That is a fun look! I also like how you split up the sentiment too! Very cute!

FUN!
Those colors are perfect for a little fiesta...
and oh! The heat :(
We reached 95 today (by my car's thermometer)...
I'm miserable and I'm not supposed to feel like this till July...
so the beach sounds great!
Love the flowers not all colored in...
they're perfect!

LOOOOOVE this one Amy!! I am coveting these Paper Smooches stamps, I only own 1 set and that simply isn't enough! I love how you only colored in parts of the flowers, a lot more interesting that way if you ask me ;) GREAT job!

Suzanne said...

Love it! It's awesome, Amy! Those buttons are great on this card...I especially like the multi-colored lettering!

So I must admit that I read your comment, and thought, Denver is near Kansas? LOL! I checked the map -- and realized I should refresh my geography! It was beautiful out there!

Lynn said...

First of all, if I didn't already have them coming, this would have made me buy this set! Second this is awesome! I LOVE the gradient on the sentiment, amazing! So is the button & twine and those banners. The whole thing in incredible. :)

Hi miss lady!! Great card, love it!! ps: the sun I used on my sailing card is the sun from the same set from WD. LOL I just stamped it yellow then cut it out and colored in the whole thing instead of leaving the gap between the sun and the rays. :) :) :) Hope you have a great weekend!! HUGS!
