Play Date Cafe Challenge #39


These pictures are from the Russell Court Hotel, in Dublin, Ireland, our next destination in the Play Date Cafe's travels around the world.  And these colors are about as far away from my usual choices as Ireland is from Ohio.  But once I started to play, I really enjoyed working with them, and I'm pleased with the way my card turned out.  Per Sue's suggestion, I'm also entering it into the MFW's Classy and Elegant Challenge


Supplies: camel, white, black, mushroom cardstocks, black and white swirl paper, lace and script paper (for flower), Hero Arts CL156 Treasure the Moments, CL401 Speckled Ornaments, S4878 Old Letter Writing, Palette Burnt Umber ink, Stampology onyx ink, camel flower button, black gems
