PDCC118 - Simon Says Stamp

Wednesday, February 8, 2012

Welcome to The Play Date Cafe's Challenge #118!
And here's where that golden yellow, pacific, and cobalt color story lead me.
I started this card by machine stitching, with turquoise-threaded, straight stitches, around the edges of a piece of blue and yellow, plaid, patterned paper, before adhering it to the Crumb Cake, cardstock, card face.  I then adhered a wide strip of turquoise and blue, chevron, patterned paper, whose bottom edge was trimmed with a yellow, wavy, starter strip, and machine stitched, with turquoise-threaded, zig-zag stitches, the length of its top and bottom edges.  Both a length of white lace and white, seam binding ribbon, which had been stained with Yellow Daisy Glimmer Mist, were then wrapped around the center of that wide, chevron paper; before the latter was tied, in a dressy bow, near the left edge of the card face, and embellished with a blue, star button, laced with a duet of hemp twine bows.
The "sending you sunshine" sentiment was stamped, in Basic Black ink, just inside the bottom edge of a vintage, notebook, journaling card.
And its top edge was dressed up with a trio of color-coordinating and hand-cut pennants, anchored with turquoise-threaded, zig-zag stitches.
The pocket was stamped, in Pacific Point ink, on a Very Vanilla, cardstock, die cut pocket, which had been distressed with Tea Dye and Antique Linen inks.  It was then adhered, with foam tape, just below the stamped, in Daffodil Delight ink, sun, which also received a yellow, glitter treatment, to complete the look.
Now, it's your turn!  You have until the close of the day EST, next Tuesday, February 14, 2012, to link up your takes over at the challenge link above.  Have fun with this one, ya'll!  And before you're off to getting inky, please be sure to also use that challenge link to see what the rest of the girls have been up to with this bold and bright color story, as well as to find out what you're playing for, this month, from our fabulous sponsor, Simon Says Stamp.
