Play Date Cafe Challenge 49

The Play Date Cafe Colour Challenge this week was to use the colors hot pink, turquoise, rusty orange, and chocolate brown in a piece of art. At first I was a bit stumped. Then I saw Southwest in the colors and realized that the last Club Scrap/Stamp kits were in the adobe theme. And a card was born. The mosaic frame worked perfectly with the turquoise and hot pink and the pots called for the rusty orange color. I thought the saying was great. The background was embossed using a cuttlebug folder and layered on a chocolate brown card base. I think it works.

Funny isn't it, it only needs a theme or a favourite stamp and you're off, despite thinking 'help' earlier! You did a great job with the play date colours this week, love your card. Thanks for playing :)
