Red. lime and grey at the Play Date Cafe!

Hey, that rhymes!!  Here is out inspiration for this week's challenge at The Play Date Cafe:


Challenging colors, for sure.  But once I found this Basic Grey dp, I decided to use all printed papers, and then it was just a matter of finding what looked good together.  Here is my entry for this week:

:
supplies: white cardstock, dps from October Afternoon "Modern Homemaker", "Beach Chair", and "Report Card", plus DCWV Mariposa, and Heidi Grace.  Background paper is from the Basic Grey Ambrosia paper pad, courtesy of my friend Donna, Hero Arts E3273 Hibiscus Style (flower), CG291 Three Dotted Flowers (leaves), and CL493 Live Life (sentiment), versafine onyx black and Adirondack Cranberry inks, tiny lime buttons
