DeNami Design is sponsoring the challenge at The Play Date Cafe this week.  I hadn't played in their challenge before, so I thought I would take a look.  They had an awesome inspiration board of colors created by their senior design team member, Julie Ranae.  Once I saw those colors, I just had to play along!

Here is my card using the inspiration colors.

I couldn't get the center sentiment to show in the picture, so I took a close up of it.

I used the DeNami Design Decorative Flourish stamp to create my background using VersaMark ink.  I embossed a piece of Stampin' Up vanilla cardstock and wrapped it with some twine.  The friend sentiment was created by running a strip of paper through a Dymo label maker.  I added some handmade crocheted flowers with dew drop centers.

I plan on visiting The Play Date Cafe blog again!
