Play Date Cafe Challenge


I'm surprising myself that I've found the time to make another card this week already! :)  Amazingly, this card came together really fast (that doesn't happen very often!)  And is it bad to say that I'm really happy with how it turned out??

Anyway, I just discovered a new card challenge site called The Play Date Cafe. I'm still learning how it all works out, but this week's challenge was to use the colors black and white with green.  I'm hoping cream counts for white! 

Here's what I came up with:

I've had the bookprint paper for a while, but I'm pretty sure it was Jenni Bowlin. The flower rub-on is from Stampin' Up and the sentiment is Lucida Handwriting font. 

I'm really enjoying these card challenges - they sure help get my creative juices flowing.  Give them a try!!

Thanks so much for looking and God bless you!!
