Play Date Cafe Challenge #36 - Birdcage Fun

Love the colors Julie selected for this weeks challenge at the Play Date Cafe Challenge. I was thinking romance and if you look at her pictures they are for a wedding I think. :)



The Design Team also decided to challenge ourselves and play around with a few other elements. I won't say what they were but if you pop over to the Cafe you can see what else we decided to include as a common theme.  While you are over there check out the new badges for the PDDC!

Onto my cards for the challenge. Yep! Not one but two cards this week all for the price of one!

The first one was created with a touch of grey as my neutral color.  I loved how it turned out but then decided I wanted to try something else...  




My second card was created using a mask.  I created a mask from acetate using the Ranger Birdcage Die cut from Sizzix. 



Loved how they both turned out and they ended up looking very similar in design. :)

  Kelly Marie Alvarez  is also joining us in the challenge this week as our guest designer!  She is also sponsoring our challenge this week with a fabulous prize from her new release which will be available at Lawn Fawn

The rest of the design team also created some beautiful projects using the inspiration colors. 


Can't wait to see what other people create for the challenge this week using the colors.

  7. Both these cards are stunning Suzz but my personal favourite is the first one because I love the addition of the soft grey. I love all the TH/Sizzix dies but I think the caged bird has to be my favourite.
