Play Date Cafe Challenge 125


I decided to try something for this colour splash challenge over at the Play Date Cafe.  We are to use the colours black and white with a splash of brown.


My card is a bit unconventional as one would expect hearts to be red or pink, but in this case they are a light brown (using up a little scrap from an MME pack).


The beautiful black and white patterned papers are from BasicGrey's "little black dress" 6 X 6 pad.

I used a PTI Mendhi Medallion impression plate for the white panel and then used the stamps and dies from Back Pocket Basics stamp set.  I love the look of that impression plate, I hope you can see it in the photo.  The white panel and pocket are both popped up with some dimensional squares.

The Half Marathon this moring was tough!  Mostly because it was really hot for April 1st with 85% humidity!  But, we did it, and I think that will be my last race until we move back to South Africa, so I can relax a bit and try to enjoy my running a bit more.  It's also been an exercised filled week, Lisa and I have been to the gym every day  except the weekend, and we start again tomorrow morning.

I hope that you all had a fantastic weekend!  Mine was so busy, with very little sleep so I am really looking forward to some solid zzzz's tonight!

A big congrats on your run! And, boy this challenge was a tough one....not much of our "normal" stuff to work with. You did amazingly, tho! What a rich and joyous card, Brenda.
