Second Post - Play Date Cafe Challenge

Hello Again Everyone:

Normally, I only post every couple of days; however, have a few things going on this week and I didn't want to take the chance that I may not be able to participate in a few challenges. :o) It's funny I am thinking this way, since I just participated in my very first challenge a two weeks ago and now, I afraid I may miss one. :o) Below are the cards I submitted to PDCC. I love the colors we were given to work with. When I began putting the cards together, I'm sure I hade this card in mind for a female, but as the card began to take form it appeared as though this card could be definitely given to a male--friend. I got excited about that because male cards are difficult for me to do. I must be still working off some of my Father's Day creativity :) Take a look and let me know what you think.

My Take...



The brown paper was not as rich as it is now. I deepend the embossed background paper with a deep red ink. On the partyhat card immediately around the bottom nesstability the original shade of brown (which gives the appearance of a highlight) shifts to a richer shade of brown. The gift card (first card) embossed background is completely covered with the deep red.





Thanks for stopping by The Peddler's Gallery.
