The Playdate Cafe #16

Good morning everyone.  How has your week been so far?  I saw a Robin yesterday and today my Cardinals are singing.  That hopefully means spring is coming soon. 

I made a card last night for the Play Date Cafe.  I was wondering how I was going to pull it off with my usual pastel colors I use.  I am just a girly girl when it comes to most things so anything feminine is just my style.  I think I did ok.  What do you think?

This dragonfly is actually a sticker.  I got it at Archivers in the $1.99 spot over a year ago.  It says on the back of the packaging that it is EK Success.

I was having a hard time with the silver color and that is when I found this dragonfly and it has silver wire and beeds along with 2 shades of purple and red.  Perfect!  I used my Candy Apple Red Glimmer Mist on  the doily.

Cardstock: PTI/ Plum Pudding
Patterned Paper: PTI/ Pretty Pastels
Border Punch: Fiskars
Stamps: PTI/ Big and Bold Wishes
Ink: Martha Stewart for the purple and Tsuiniko for the red
Doily: cake section at Hobby Lobby
Crystals: Hero Arts
Ribbon: Target/ wedding section

Thanks so much for stopping by
