Play Date Cafe Challenge #44

Sarah selected  the colors this week at the  Play Date Cafe Challenge.
She schemed up these colors to try to pair together colors that don't seem to work together easily.

Here is the color challenge photo:

using the colors Hot Pink, Mustard and Navy Blue...

I think my blue might be a tad light but otherwise I tried to stick close to the colors provided. 

I started with the main image had fun putting together my scene. I then decided to create an unusual way to display my card by turning the Easel card on it's side.


and putting a sentiment on the inside.  I really liked how it turned out. I will have to do this again. The only downside is it is difficult to photograph.

I also created an ATC with the same colors and using a collage stamp. I was pleased with how it turned out.

The other design team members have also created something wonderful projects using these unusual colors.

 Our fun  guest designer this week is Elise and her lovely  creation can be found at her blog Mama Cow Creations.

Our sponsor this week is Memory Box go over to the Cafe to see what the prize is.

We are also saying farewell to Stephanie Kraft.  I will miss her and her wonderful designs. She has been great to work with and I hope we get to do so again in the future.

This is going to be a fun challenge with these interesting color choices. Have a lovely Thursday.

  25. I just had to come back to admire more cards from you...can't "reist"! The Chiense writing on the ATC means "5 stringed Pipa (type of string instrument)melody". Love the colors and mix of stamps!

  30. This is an incredibly beautiful card...and it is using that "interesting" color combination in such a lovely way! I really love every detail on it! Infact, I didn't even notice that there was backgound music and thread on this card until right now. This is extraordinary!

    And, it was this card that I saw at the PDCC that brought me to your awesome blog!
