Play Date Cafe - Blog Hop

I've got some exciting news to share today!  I've joined the Play Date Cafe Challenge Design Team!  You're going to love the creations by these talented designers.
As the Play Date Cafe begins a new season of designers, we also say goodbye to Julie Campbell, who has been on the design team for the past 4 months.

To celebrate Julie's achievements and the new design team, Play Date Cafe is having a BLOG HOP!

If you came here from Julie's blog, you are in the right place, didn't Julie pick a great color inspiration for this weeks challenge.  This weeks colors are Lavender, White and any shade of Pale Green.

I thought the Multi Step Lilacs from Kitchen Sink Stamps were just perfect for this weeks Challenge.  The Lilacs were stamped in shades of Purples, and the leaves in shades of Green (see color recipe below for steps).  I added the sentiment from Kitchen Sink Stamps Words of Comfort & Joy in Black Memento, the Butterfly is from the Multi Step Hydrangea.

Details:
Stamps - Kitchen Sink Stamps Multi Step Lilacs, Words of Comfort & Joy, 3 Step Hydrangea
Ink - SU Lilac, Lavender Lace, Almost Amethyst, Eggplant, Close to Cocoa, Memento Black, Cottage Ivy, Bamboo Leaves, Distress Ink Crushed Olive
