Play Date Cafe Challenge #53 - Color Splash

It is a color splash week at the Play Date Cafe ChallengeSarah selected the colors and the inspiration photo for the challenge.

We were lucky enough to receive some beautiful stamps from Mark's Finest Papers to use in our projects this week.  They sent us Flourishes and Frame Set with some gorgeous flourishes, frames and sentiments.

I created this card using the stamps from the set. I apologize as my ribbon looks much lighter in my picture than it is in real life.

The second card I used some beautiful Toile pattern paper for the bottom but I did add one stamped feature. You will have to guess what it is. :)

and here is the beautiful photo for our inspiration:

Marks Finest Paper will also be providing a beautiful stamp set from their November release as our prize this week!
If you are looking for more inspiration, go and take a peek at the rest of the design teams projects!

Hope your Thursday is wonderful!
