Lizzie Anne Designs Has a Date

...with The Play Date Cafe, and it's a color challenge! For my first card, I've used my Bonjour Little Bits set.

Stamps: Bonjour Little Bits (Lizzie Anne Designs)
Card Stock: Marina Mist, Perfect Plum, White
Ink: Perfect Plum, Marina Mist, Copic Markers
Accessories: Eyelet Circle and Circle Nestabilities, AMuse Ribbon, Foam Tape

This next card is the first one I made for the challenge. I decided to make another card, because I thought the green was a little too prominent in this one. I saw Cindy's tutorial for the Ruffled Ribbon Border, and thought I would try it on this card. The butterflies are from Follow Your Dreams.

Stamps: Follow Your Dreams/Spring Mix '11
Card Stock: White, Marina Mist
Ink: Onyx Black VersaMark, Inkssentials Opaque Pen
Accessories: Oval Nestabilities, Bricked Embossing Folder (Tim Holtz/Sizzix), Simply Chartreuse Satin Ribbon (PTI), Marina Mist Taffeta Ribbon, Perfect Plum Button, Scor-Tape, Foam Tape


Great news! There's a huge Overstock sale at Lizzie Anne Designs right now. Everything in the Overstock section of the store is on sale for 40% off through Sunday! Awesome, right?

Thanks for dropping by, and remember to check out all of the other challenger cards!

Thanks for visiting!

Oooh, ooh, ooh! Can't decide which card I love the most. Round cards are always so fun, but I love those purple butterflies, green ruffle and the dots of white around the edge of your oval. On the other hand, I want that bistro set...now. Lol

Both are sweet cards, Rose Ann! Love the ribbon running around the edge of the circle card - a perfect touch! And the ruffle of ribbon around the oval is a great idea! I love the cut-out butterflies, too!
