Playdate Cafe #101

Hi All!
I`ve had a bit of time over the weekend to play so I thought I`d join in again at the Playdate Cafe Challenge. They have given us this fabulous inspirational pic,
Once again, the colours were just too good NOT to play along. I have,however, taken lots of liberties with my design,
the main one being the wine Poinsettia with grey leaves.I think it`s called `artistic license` lol.
I`ve used a dark tan coloured base card.
Both DP are from Papermania Silent Night Collection. Gorgeous papers,the stripey one has a touch of sparkle in it matted onto grey card.
The Poinsettia is a medallion stamp from Creative Expressions but I`ve left off the largest section as it`s huge.I stamped 4 of the layers and turned them slightly aswell. They are raised using foam pads.
The leaves are embossed from a Glitter Girls Embossing board and cut out. I`ve glittered the edges of the Poinsettia and leaves but now I`m not sure I should have but ..hey ho it`s done now.
The sentiment is from Chocolate Baroque Deck the Halls set stamped in Versacolor Onyx  black onto parchment coloured paper and matted onto tan card.
I`ve added a cream/parchment ribbon and double looped bow and some cream coloured flatbacked pearls to the centre of the flower.
All in all I`m quite pleased with it but can`t help thinking there`s something missing...

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx


  1. This is lovely - the colours on this really didn't appeal to me but they look so different on your card from the inspiration picture.
