Play Date Cafe #74

Here's my submission for this week's Play Date Cafe challenge, using the inspiration picture you'll see below it:


supplies:  turquoise, purple, and white cardstock, PSX stamp K-1695 from 1995, a gift from a friend, Hero Arts CL490 Sending Smiles Messages, Versafine onyx black, watercolor pencils, lace from Carole

Once, again PDCC has surprised me with some colors I wouldn't probably have tried on my own.  The inspriration picture made me think of a cottage in the French countryside, so I added the little bit of crochet lace to represent lacey curtains in my imaginary cottage.
