The Play Date Cafe Challenge #74


I had a few different ideas for cards for this week's Play Date Cafe challenge but I ended up having to go with the quickest as I got yet another call from work asking me to come in today.  *Sigh*  I have a feeling this may become a regular thing.  Perhaps next Monday I'll turn my phone off...  
Supplies: CB: The Stamp Pad Co; Stamps: Hero Arts, Lawn Fawn; Ink: VersaMark, ColorBox; Lavender & Starry Night Stickles
Back to the card:  I went with a Hero Arts flower and sentiment and a Lawn Fawn banner and sparkled it up a bit with some Stickles.  I think if I were to do another one I might shade in the flower a bit but for now I'm sticking with uber-simple.  :)
  
On another note, Emily asked me what punch I used for the flowers in yesterday's post.  Both the flower (Pop Flower) and the tag are from Woodware in the UK.  There is a Woodware USA but currently they only carry stamps, peel offs and ink pads.  Hopefully they'll start selling the punches too because not only do they have a huge selection of designs but they are also durable and give a great clean cut.  I don't have the same problems with them as I did with another brand as mentioned here.  


Edited to add:  The stems and leaves from yesterday's were cut from Scenic Route patterned paper.

What a glorious flower!! Both on the backing and the big purple one!! You must turn off your phone, or at least let it go to voicemail so that you can screen your calls :)
