The Play Date Cafe - Guest Designer


I am so excited that this week I get to be the guest designer for The Play Date Cafe!! I know! Added to which is the fabulous colour story this week. I was bouncing up and down on my chair when I got to see those delicious colours and fab concentric circles. Talking of the latter, I immediately thought of the sunshine impression plate from Papertrey Ink. Then I was flooded with ideas as to how to use the colour aspect of the inspiration. I had piles of colourful circles cut out of matching card and played around with them - one moment they were a simplistic tree, the next a cute circular guy with googly eyes and then finally I settled on a cascade of circles set to different levels with dimensional adhesive and a few buttons and twine thrown in for good measure!


Finally I picked out a simple sentiment which I felt suited the graphic feel to this card.



The sponsor for this weeks challenge is Echo Park Paper Co.


Please be sure to check out the prize and all contest details at The Play Date Cafe - the deadline is Tuesday, July 5 2011 at 11.59 pm EST. I'd be delighted if you'd play along.

Finally I'd like to thank everyone at The Play Date Cafe for inviting me along - I've loved the opportunity to guest design today.

Debby
