A beautiful work of art and a lovely first impression as a PDCC designer! You definitely rocked this challenge! I'm proud to be on the same team with you :)

Lovely card TRace. I hardly ever think to make my own patterned paper, what a fantastic idea, you will have to nag (inspire!) me to do it. It's great to have you on the team!!

Alice Wertz said...

beautiful mix of patterns, Tracey! love the design, too! very pretty card!

Sabrina said...

Hi Tracey!! LOVE your card, blog, and style!! I am glad I found your blog! This card is so very pretty!! :)))

Colleen Dietrich said...

TRace, wow! You made all that dp??? I love to do that do, but it never impresses people until they read what I've done to turn an all-white piece into something more. I think you've done a FAB job on that! ANd -- that frame -- is it Artisan Elements by Pink Paislee? I just bought some at the craft store the other day, so it's fresh in my mind.

Sooooo glad to be working with you and your mega talent on the Play Date CAfe!

Hi Tracey
Thanks for the nice comment on my blog. The colours do smack of beach hut, now you come to mention it...I had thought of French farm kitchen!!
Looking forward to seeing you each week with another lovely make like this one. Great idea to make all your own paper!
