It's Play Date Cafe Challenge time again! You will find it here: This week it is to use brown, green and white. I have tried to put the picture on my blog but I am so daft I can't make it work! Have to wait for beautiful daughter number 2 to visit! Here is my entry:

I was inspired by Racheal Jackson's article in the April 'Craft stamper' magazine. She can make delicate look so easy and I think mine is a bit heavy handed. I used the Elusive images hydrangea stamp that I coloured in with my watercolour pencils. The green muslin paper was stamped with a Prima script and then I cut the outer edge of the flower. The text is by Crescendo stamps, the back of the card is the Martha Stewart hydrangea punch and then I used three brown pearls to finish. Now to try and remember how to link this to the PDCC site! Have a lovely evening.


  1. What a gorgeous flower, love how you have cut around the edges too. Lovely border punch too. Tracy Evans x
