PDCC 128

 I can't remember when was the last time I played Play Date Cafe Challenge !!? I think once a long time ago? Anyhow this week's colors really spiked my interest. Since I am color-challenged, this vibrant and "ymmilicious" (if there is such a word) photo kind of gives me a little push.
 sending you love #1
I used the Zig Zag (chevron) stamp from Hero Arts and washi tape for this design ( the pink lines under the stamped Chevron). The washi tape were kindly sent to me from HA Flick friend Janet W.  Janet found out that we do not have Target stores here in Canada and offered to send the washi tape to me that she bought from Target! Isn't that something!!? When I received the washi tape, I was so happy, as you can just imagine! Here I embossed the butterflies in white over the colored paper (which I created with Distress Inks-Spiced Marmalade and Worn Lipstick).
I have been making cards with lots of butterflies lately. There will be more to come! Hope you are not tired of them!

This is such a great design and wonderful combo!
I love what you did mixing the chevron stamp with the washi tape and these two butterflies are just a perfect whimsical addition!

Those colors are fab-u-lous! No wonder you jumped in and played again! I love that you colored the CS and then embossed the butterflies (which I could NEVER get tired of seeing, esp. w/ your magic!).
