The Play Date Cafe Meets Card Patterns

Good evening my friends. It is after 11 pm here, but I made a little time to craft after painting my sons room. Thank goodness we are almost done and my craftroom will be alllllll mine...LOL. I had a very special card to make for a wonderful friend. It is her birthday and well it just couldn't go without a card made specially for her.

The color combo I chose to use was from The Play Date Cafe: Black, White and a Splash of yellow. This challenge site is one of my fav's and boy have I missed playing here. Life has just gotten too busy and boy have I missed it. Of course with it being so late and well frankly my brain being so tired I required a sketch to help me...LOL. Card Patterns has a clean and simple sketch that screamed these colors. Thanks to all of the Design Team's inspiration's, they are beautiful.

Here is my card:

Clean and simple it is and well you know how I love my dry embossing folders...when you need a little pazz...emboss.

Recipe: Stamp: SU(??); Ink: Black; Paper: Daffodil Delight, Basic Black and Whisper White; Accessories: white pen, paper piercer, D'Vine Swirl, black pearls and black satin ribbon.

It sure is wonderful to sit and create something to make someone happy. Wishing you all a great night and thanks ladies for the wonderful challenges.
