Forever in Love - PDCC#36


Thanks so much for stopping by for this weeks Play Date Cafe Challenge!  Before I share details on this weeks colors, I have to tell you a bit about this weeks challenge, so you don't think the whole team has "gone to the birds".  This past week the team was chatting about the Bird Cage Die, and Ruby issued the challenge to use it along with this weeks colors.  Julie's wonderful colors for this week are Red, White and Pink (see inspiration photo below).  If you have the Bird Cage Die, or birds, why not incorporate them with this weeks colors!

The bird cage is a piece of metal from Ten Second Studios that is embossed with a Texture Fades Folder, then cut with the Bird Cage Die, the Bird is cut from the same piece of metal, just flipped over.  I created the flowers with the Tattered Floral Die, layering the flowers and curling the edges.  The White panel is also embossed with a Texture Fades Folder.

Here's this weeks Color Story Photo, we'd love for you to play along with this weeks challenge at The Play Date Cafe, you can find all the details here on how to enter.
