Play Date Cafe Challenge #89

Look at this lovely soft photo inspiration at the Play Date Cafe this week:


I liked the lower right corner of the inspiration, with the clocks and the hydrangeas and here is what I came up with:


supplies: taupe, buttercream and white card stock, mint K&Company Brenda Walton "Small Wonders Girl" dp, Webster's Pages petite pages (clocks), Hero Arts K5376 Hydrangea, Craft's Meow "Simply Delightful" sentiment, Versafine Vintage Sepia ink, flower panel sponged in antique linen distress ink, Prismacolor pencils, yellow twill ribbon (thanks, Mary Anne:)), pale green button, natural twine, Sizzix embossing folder

I saw these colors and thought of you immediately! They are SO dreamy! I love how you captured the real essence of the color palette, because some of the cards didn't. Love the pencil-colored hydrangea. I can never get enough of that stamp! And your bow just finishes off all the gorgeous details.
