Play Date Cafe Challenge and another Verve Peek

I'm super excited to be playing along as a Guest Designer this week over on a fun Challenge Blog, the Play Date Cafe. If you haven't played along with these fabulous girls, you HAVE to stop by and check out their fun challenges!! This week's challenge is sponsored by Mod Podge Rocks and has a fabulous Mod Podge-i-rific prize for one lucky participant. The challenge this week is to use the following "Color Story" as inspiration for your own project, then head on over to the Play Date Cafe blog and post a link to your design for a chance to win the prize!!

Isn't that fun!?!? I was mostly inspired by those awesome colors, which were right up my alley! And they were the PERFECT combination to use with the new Verve set, Happy Days (releasing Friday night), which was Spotlighted over on the Verve Blog yesterday. Check it out:

I used some really fun printed digi paper from the new Mani-Pedi paper pack by Bella Gypsy Designs (Elemental Scraps), which just happened to match the Play Date Cafe Color Story PERFECTLY! I stamped the cool swirly circle frame thing from Happy Days and combined a few of the sentiments to create a fun retro-ish Father's Day card! Inspired by the necklaces in the challenge image, I added some hemp twine to finish it off.

To see more of Happy Days, head on over to THIS POST to see what the Verve Divas have done with the set. And don't forget to check out the other Sneak Peeks going on this week on the Verve Blog and then join us Friday Night at 9 PM Eastern for our Beach Party Release Party!!

And be sure to head on over to the Play Date Cafe to see what their regular DT has done with the Color Story - you won't be disappointed!!
