Play Date Cafe challenge #136

I will quite often make cards for the Play Date Cafe challenges but forget that the challenge ends on the Tuesday and not the Wednesday.  Either that or forget to photograph them!!!  But this week I'm well ahead of myself.  I actually made the card on Thursday and photographed it but only just posting it.  A big improvement for me lol  The inspiration for the challenge is centred around this photo

And here is my interpretation of it

I was really pleased to have a set of papers in the colours required for this challenge

The border on the left was taken from a sheet of paper that was lots of borders and ribbons.  I stamped the flower onto three different papers and from the azure flower I cut out the centre circle and used it as the flower centre on the smallest blackberry flower.  I curled the flowers slightly and used 3D gel to give them support

I finished the card by mounting the flower onto a die cut panel and stamped the sentiment

Materials used

Kaisercraft Gypsy Sisters papers
Flower stamp from the Now and Always rubber stamp set from Ippity stamps by Unity
Sentiment stamp a magazine freebie
Memento ink pad
Spellbinder's Nestabilities Small Labels #1 dies
Pinflair 3D gel
