Play Date Cafe Challenge #45



The colors for the Play Date Cafe Challenge are so yummy - I love that winey, mauvy color (see inspiration picture below).   Most of my card uses solid cardstocks, overstamped with a flourish background and clear embossed to give a rich tone-on-tone look.  This is such an unusual combination of colors; I already have another card in the works.

Supplies: rust/burgundy, orange, wheat and mauve cardstocks, plaid pp from K&Company designer mat pad, Hero Arts CG119 Flourish Background, PSX Kk-3096 wreath of leaves, The Paper Company Autumn Stamp Kit (sentiment), colored pencils and mineral spirits
