Play Date Cafe Challenge #81



Mojo, where are you?! Seriously, I've been occupying myself with organizational tasks lately because my creative mojo is apparently on vacation, without me. Sheesh. I haven't been on a vacation in 2 years, 3 months. (Not that I'm counting.) You'd think my mojo would invite me, but NO. ;-D

However, today I am happy to have a card to blog! I was looking through challenge sites over the weekend and saw the color combo that the Play Date Cafe is using this week--I LOVE purple and green together and really wanted to make something for this challenge, even if my mojo is in Cabo without me. I scored a card base of Royal Velvet about 1/2 inch apart in two columns on either side of a central area. I used Scor-Tape to add a line of glittery goodness to the center of each scored area. Next, I die cut the flowers from PTI's Delightful Dahlia in Soft Stone, stamped them with a background stamp, and then with the Dahlia stamps. I glittered the centers and added rhinestones, and popped them up in the center area, with the leaves framing them. Lastly, I combined white embossing powder and glitter and embossed the Happy Birthday sentiment and added tiny rhinestones under it.

{I apologize for the picture--I went to use my "good" camera, only to find that its batteries need recharging and I have no replacements for the meantime! So, I had to use my point-and-shoot and I don't feel that the colors are quite true. Also, the flash kept flashing in the center tiny rhinestone, making the trio look uneven--they are even IRL, I swear, LOL!}

Supplies
Stamps: PTI--Delightful Dahlia; Stampendous--Pattern Trio
Paper: PTI--Royal Velvet, Simply Chartreuse, Soft Stone
Ink: Versamark; Versacolor--Hyacinth; Memento--Grape Jelly; PTI--Ripe Avocado
Misc.: Dies--PTI Delightful Dahlia; Glitter--Palette Prisma; Scor-Tape 1/4"; Embossing Powder--Stamp Diego Ultra Detail White; Rhinestones--Recollections
