WMS Sketch Challenge #66 + PDCC100!

Well, after a few weeks of getting back into the school groove, (and after spending a week making fancy invitations for my hubby's 40th birthday party; post to go up soon! ;) I'm finally reading to get back to participating in some of my favorite weekly challenges...two of which are the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge and the Play Date Cafe Challenge. I combined them this week to make my card...

And voila my card: Photobucket I don't know if it is remotely perceptible, but I stamped the green card base with Text-It in a really light green color because I wanted it to be subtle...at first it looked great, and once I had the card assembled (and could therefore not do anything about it), the ink color had faded so much that you could hardly see it! I didn't really want it to be that subtle... ;) oh well...I took another close up picture, hoping you might be able to see the text better... Photobucket In any case, it's fun to be back to challenges again. Have a great week everyone!

Cardstock: Garden Green, Pumpkin Pie, More Mustard (SU)

  1. WOW this is so elegant, Rachel! The bright orange and green are so lovely together. It's making me think that I use too many neutrals on my cards! These colors just pop by themselves. The simple embellishments let your amazing doily shine!

  2. These doilies look fab in these colour, I love the tag with it's sweet button and twine embellishment, so pretty!

  3. Ooh I think this is the nicest doily card I've seen so far, really very pretty! Love how you've done the embellishments. Thanks for joining in our 100th challenge over at The Play Date Cafe!

  4. Super lovely! That doily stamp is fab! :) And you have used the colors beautifully!
