Play Date Cafe!

Good morning everyone! Hope your week is going well! We have had a great week thus far...it is seriously amazing what a little Vit. D-by way of sunshine will do for you!!:) We've had a few days at the park-showing Max what the sun looks and feels like! Hope you are enjoying the wonders of Spring in your neck of the woods!

Today Lizzie Anne Designs is hosting the color challenge over at Play Date Cafe! This great image is the one that we're using for our inspriation...challene #74! So, here is the inspriation...
And here is what I made following this inspiratinal photo! I felt springish..and loved the white in the photo...so I used the new birdcage(isn't it awesome!?) from the Spring Mix, Follow Your Dreams and then used plenty of white space...something I've missed for a while!! The birthday sentiment was stamped, it is from the Banner Birthday sixlet stamp set, and then punched out and added to the white space...just punched for a little something special, but not too much attention.
My flowers are made from a SU triple flower punch--and I stressed the paper out a bit and added some pretty pearls. My tulle bow was the last touch...and a larger pearl to finish the card off!
There is a bit of fun happening in the LAD store today, all the items in the Overstock section of the store is 40% through Sunday! So enjoy some great deals on some great stamps!! Several Mix sets are in there...(the Sweet and Spooky one...LOVE this one!!)...enjoy!!
I hope you have a wonderful day! Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreicate you sharing a few with me today!

Jen, this is a great birdcage! I love how you adorned it with little handmade flowers and pearls. We were each blessed with a terrific assortment of LAD stamps, and there was a cute bird cage in my bunch. I've already used it and it is adorable.

Glad you played along with us at the Cafe this week. It's a fun week with LIzzie Anne Designs!
