A Hint of Cool


and I don't mean in the sense of the Fonz style of cool (showing my ancient age there). I mean that this week's Play Date Cafe challenge is monochromatic except for adding a hint of ice cool blue.

It's a nice choice too as I have a stupidly thick pile of papers in my black and white file which need using. As for the blue, well I know I've resorted to it before but once again I've dug out my trusty velveteen paper and die cut a butterfly from it. The black and white paper is by Delish Designs & the circle is from Luxe Designs. The Happy Birthday sentiment I created on Adobe Indesign.

Well, I may now be back in the swing of my normal life, post break, so somewhere in my spare time I need to crack on with scrapping all the photos we took into a holiday album, whilst it's all still fresh in the memory. I love having the albums of our holidays but boy they need quite some time commitment to make. Enjoy your weekend folks :)

Lovely card, I love the design. I'm new to PDCC, but I've been so inspired by seeing everyone's work.
I'm definitely hooked on creating more color challenge cards.
