Play Date Cafe Challenge card.


I made this card for the Play Date Cafe Challenge to use these colors for inspiration.  I love these colors together, I remember when I was 10 I had a favorite skirt that was pleated and plaid (Oh yes) in these exact colors.  
These awesome images are from Birds Cards, she has a ton of beautiful digital images and they are all free.  I learned some tips from Bird too on how to do the shading, you must visit her site.    Paper is Around the Block Ash filigree , and I used a snip of vellum on the lamp shade.  I used the Spellbinders Labels 8 and  Petite Ovals Nestabilities.  Stampin Up Texturz Plates Backgrounds #1 Flourish and Perfect Details.  I finished it off with some glitter, pearls, a feather and a flower.  Thanks for looking, ~Diane
