"Charming" PDCC51 & Exciting News!

A quick post tonight with an exciting announcement and a card I'm entering in the Play Date Cafe color challenge this week (PDCC51).  This card also uses a wonderful sketch by Arlana Patten for Sweet Sketch Wednesday.  I'll start with details on the card...

Colors this week at the Play Date Cafe are beige, blue and a touch of light mint.  I like these colors together and what an interesting inspiration photo selected this week from Sarah Anderson! 

I've used Stampin' Up's "Charming" stamp set for this card and SU colors Marina Mist, Crumb Cake and Vanilla.  The DP is "Blueberry Crisp" from Stampin' Up as well.

 My touch of mint comes into play on the butterflies - they're even glittered in a mint color!

 Now for the fabulous news today:  Arlana at Sweet Sketch Wednesday asked me to join her design team - and of course I am!  Took me all of 30 seconds to make that decision!  I am honored by the invitation - lots of talent and creativity on that design team.  I love the weekly sketches at Sweet Sketch Wednesday and am really looking forward to this experience starting the first Wednesday in November.  So stay tuned - even more goodness coming here to my blog!

Thanks for visiting today!
