I missed playing with PDCC last week, so when I saw today’s challenge, I had to play along.

 

Here are the challenge colours.

Here’s my attempt.

PDCC 12 August 2010

My beige isn’t quite as beige as I’d hoped and my green’s a few shades out, but never mind.  I stamped the grasses with Fabrico (now Versacraft) Mint Green ink, then clear embossed them.  Added a sun/moon mask, then sponged over the whole card with Versamagic Wheat (adding a little Pumpkin to edges and bottom).  Finally, I stamped the words in Versafine Vintage Sepia and embossed .

Wow you're quick off the mark today :) Beautiful design, love how it's set to the right and the brads fill the space to the left. Love designs which are off centre. Pxx

Fantastic take on the challenge! Love your green. (I think it is very close to the colors on the seats!) Glad you found time to join us this week at the PDCC.

This is beautiful and elegant! And I think your green is just fine... if you really look at that sun-washed green in the actual photo, it speaks to your green quite perfectly!
