Great Impressions Stamps and Play Date Cafe Challenge

Happy Thursday and thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. Rain is in our forecast here in Pittsburgh for the next several days. Perfect for staying indoors and crafting.

Here is a fun idea to get your mojo in gear. Great Impressions Stamps is sponsoring this week's Play Date CafĂ© Challenge #185. There is a $25 shopping spree for Great Impressions Stamps to be won. Hope you can play along.

This is the inspiration photo for this week. Aren't' the colors just fabulous?

The Great Impressions DT thought it would be fun to play along in this challenge. For my card I used the Great Impressions Stamps -"sunshine, happiness, love G484".
I colored with Stampin-Up Markers and then cut it out with a Spellbinders circle die.   

My card colors are sahara sand, bermuda blue and rose red. I had the perfect designer paper for this challenge. It's from Stampin-Up's "thoroughly modern" collection.

I cut a couple of pennant flags from an MFT die and added some rose red seam binding to complete my card.

Make sure you drop by the Great Impressions Blog as well. There is a prize to be won there also.

Until next time.........God bless.
