Play Date Cafe #86 & Colour Blocking

Fun colour board hey, you can find all the details to play in this challenge over at The Play Date Cafe!

And my card also fits the CAS-ual Fridays challenge of colour blocking.

I went with a super simple CAS design inspired by the way that the artist on the PDC board lined up the three colours for this challenge in the top left hand corner!

Paper: PTI; Hero Arts (blue cardstock)
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black; Hollyhock & Sorbet dye ink (CTMH); Bahama Blue (Memento)
Stamps: PTI (Year of Flowers Marigolds); Sentiment (Hero Arts; Lawn Fawn; Ali Edwards)
Other: Gems (My Mind's Eye); Corner chomper

I simply cut three strips of cardstock and used the corner chomper on various corners.  I partially stamped the flower on each strip and then created the sentiment with elements from three different sets.  And I finished off with three matching gems.

Ok, I think I need to get more creative over the weekend, need to do some inking and get my fingers dirty! Have an awesome Friday! (There are two other posts below if you are interested in taking a peek).
