The Play Date Cafe Challenge - Inspiration picture

Via my friend Sue's blog I saw and loved the colors in this inspiration picture for this weeks challenge on The Play Date Cafe blog.



I haven't been inspired lately but this afternoon I just saw the Silhouette grass stamp mixed with lavender in my head and I had a card done in next to no time. That's the beauty of these stamps. I have a very old stamp from SU, dated 1997, which I used to create a pollen effect. The butterflies are digi, reduced in size. I love the fact that I can use lots of different scrap papers and just print out what I need, any size I need.

Olive and lavender

The Silhouette grass stamp is Hero Arts as well as the digi butterflies and the lavender is from Rubber Stampede.
