Play Date Cafe Challenge #49

Sarah selected  the colors for the Play Date Cafe challenge this week.
 

Another fun mix of colors to play with this week. The design team also had a second challenge this week to use a technique called Clipped Corners provided by our sponsor this week Technique Junkies.

I started with this card and had about 4 different backgrounds before I decided on this background. The flowers felt like they went with my temples and Buddha.  


After I finished my first card I realized that the technique called for only one corner to be clipped. So I created another card with this beautiful angel from Stampington.  



I am not going to include all the stamp credits and paper credits, but if you have questions about any of them, drop me a line and I will look them up for you. :)

Onto our wonderful sponsor this week:  Technique Junkies. I am always seeing the techniques from TJ on blogs and love the different techniques that are used. 


Technique Junkies is offering a wonderful  prize for the winner of the challenge. A three-year online-only subscription. The winner will have access to the online 2009, 2010, and 2011 issues. (Valued at 29.95)

Pat Huntoon is the owner of Technique Junkies and our guest designer this week, go see what she created using the technique and colors. Her blog is Pat Stamps.

  1. Wonderful take on the Clipped Corners! The Asian Themed card has lots of dimension. The Angel one is beautiful, love the glitz and added crochet trim. The misfit BG will make for a great card!
