Another PDCC

T.G.I.F. Everyone:


I wanted to share my latest Play Date Cafe Challenge submission with all of you. In my mind my card had a masculine feel, but somewhere between the beginning and the end a strand of pearls found a place on the card; and the masculine feel went right out the window. Since I have a few more birthday cards to make for the month of August, I hope, I'll get another crack at it tomorrow.






This weeks's inspiration photo at the PDCC was pretty nice. Take a look at the photo below.




Below is my interpretation...


I have to apologize for the dark photo. I really need to invest in a white backdrop. The smaller photo has better coloring. The paper I used is from Basic Grey's Cappella line. I actually used four of the numberous patterns from this line. I pulled out the sewing machine to tie the patterns together. I love a zig-zag stitch. The ribbon is one of the ribbons I purchased in Montreal earlier this summer. As you can see, I pulled out my spellbinders and in keeping with the color theme, I stamped a sentiment from SU's Three Little Words stamp set; and topped it off witha a strand of pearls.  Well...you know I'm going to ask. What do you think?

Two other things, I want to mention before I sign-off...

It's been a minute since I said anything pertaining to my Followers. Two new Followers have joined The Peddler's Gallery. Welcome Chauntelle and Stella. It's nice to have you here.

Today marks the six month anniversary of the gallery. It's been six months since I've been actively blogging. I feel like I want to do something in honor of this brief milestone. Be sure to check the blog over the next day or so. Perhaps, I'll have something to give away that you may want.

Until the next time, thanks for stopping by The Peddler's Gallery's.

Very pretty card! Love the background and the pearls add a touch of elegance to it. Yeah, I guess it is not for a guy now.
