Card Patterns + Play Date Cafe

Today I combined this sketch from Card Patterns:

with this color challenge from Play Date Cafe:

and made this card:

I wanted to use just a light purple with yellow, but this was as close as I could come - Basic Grey wisteria papers. I stamped a sentiment from SU's Perfectly Penned set with Memento purple ink onto another piece of paper from the wisteria papers and cut it out with my Petite Ovals Nestabilities. The border punch is from Martha Stewart, and the brads are Basic Grey, and may even be wisteria - they certainly match! The card base is from a pack of Bazzill cards & envelopes I bought years ago and have never even opened. (go, me)

I'm off to link this up to the two challenges, then I'll be back with a three-fer!

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. What a beautifully coordinated card! Love the double row of scallops and the brads are a perfect match!

  2. what I would like to know is...
    what is the purple drink in the inspiration photo?

    oh and yor card is beautious

  3. This is LOVELY! I enjoying your interpretation of the Card Patterns composition! CLEVER, clever! I sure am glad you were inspired to create with this sketch and share your GLORIOUS output with Card Patterns... Yee Haw!
