Avocado, Blue Mist and Grey Wool

My inspiration for this card was the current Playdate Cafe Challenge, into which I will be entering this card. The challenge is based around three colours - Avocado, Blue Mist and Grey Wool. I love these colours, I think they go so well together. So hope you like my creation! I am also entering this card into the Totally Tilda Happy Birthday Challenge and the Stampalot Birthday Challenge.

Magnolia Tilda Party Princess stamp
Papermania flower paper and dark grey premium cardstock
Core'dinations Whitewash
Spellbinders Labels Fourteen dies
Pumice Stone Distress Ink
Butterfly embossing folder from Craft Concepts
Wild Orchid Crafts flowers
Craftwork Cards sentiment
Pearl gems
Coloured Pencils

I absolutely love Core'dinations cardstock and the Whitewash collection is fab! I love the result of the butterfly embossing folder, sanded down to reveal the pattern. It gives it a lovely shabby chic look.

Anyway, hope you like and enjoy the rest of the break. So glad I don't have to go to work tomorrow!
