Play Date Cafe colors

I found time to play along with the Play Date Cafe color challenge.
 This is the newest one for this week.
 I found some pages to download from an old time children's Christmas book.  I printed one of them out on textured cardstock and used it for my card.  The paper behind that is a digital paper. 
 The red doily is cut with the Art Philosophy Close to My Heart Cricut cartridge and the snowflake is a new Martha Stewart punch. 
 This is last weeks Play Date Cafe color combo.
 I was instantly in love with those colors together and so I created a card then realized one day too late that I missed entering it for that weeks challenge. I still love the card though.  The ornament is a stamp by Gina K as is the sentiment.  The white paper came with the embossed design in it, I thought it added an elegant look. 
 I stamped it with black and embossed it with clear embossing powder and then colored it with Distress Stain in Broken China.  One of my new most favorite supplies is silver Liquid Pearls.  I added a few dots of that.
 While I had this set of stamps by Gina K out on my desk, I created two very quick and easy cards.  I cut the two labels with the Cricut Expressions and then stamped the sentiment.  This was added to a piece of paper by Teresa Collins.  I love the elegance of this paper collection.
 This card was for some guys so I liked the more masculine look of this print.
And for a photo...
Sunset from the other day in one of our shopping center parking lots! I used my Hipstamatic camera on my phone for the effect.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
