Play Date Cafe and Freshly Made Sketches

I tried several new challenges this week - the color palette from Play Date Cafe and the sketch from Freshly Made.  I needed a card for someone doing a senior piano recital - and I think it turned out pretty well.  Keeping it simple (the idea of Freshly Made) and the great colors from Play Date helped a lot - I don't think I would have come up with it on my own.  That's what's great about the challenges.

Click here to go over to the Freshly Made blog to see other creations with this sketch.  To see other designs with this color combination, click here and head over to the Play Date Cafe.

 Thanks for looking! Enjoy your week.

UPDATE: I received honorable mention on Play Date Cafe for this card - and got to add the "Cream in Our Coffee" badge!
