I am tickled, robin's egg blue, dusty yellow, and vintage rust, to be guest designing at Play Date Cafe this week! Play Date Cafe is an awesome challenge site based on a story of colors, this weeks story is ravishing. I adore this combo, and was smitten the second I saw it. The colors are so rich and timeless.

For my design I decided to stay with the vintage, old world feel. I made a card using one of my new favorite embellishments, fabric samples from furniture stores! Yup thats right... and they are FREE! This particular embellishment brings a unique texture and life to any piece.

Have some fun and come and play along at Play Date Cafe, a fresh way to be inspired by the splash of a color combo.
