Play Date Cafe & StampWithTami inspiration for Paper Crafts July Gallery Challenge

When I saw this video posted by StampWithTami on the same day that I saw this gorgeous color palette by The Play Date Cafe, I was compelled by a force beyond my control to make this card. Then I stumbled upon this shaped card challenge at the Paper Crafts blog and I knew it was my destiny :).


Caribbean Blue
                                   Sunshine - my "sunshine is a lot brighter yellow :)

I'll let Tami explain to you how to make the card. I did "make it my own" a little by adding the black pen stitching along the front buttons and around the pocket. I also chose square brads because that's what i had on hand. Oh, and I added a clothing label. TFL

Stamps: Palm Tree is All Night Media, Greeting is from unidentified stamp set bought at consignment shop
Paper: Club Scrap: Pure & Simple black. White-unknown
Inks: all TH Distress Ink colors: Tumbled Glass, Peacock Feathers, Mustard Seed, Black Soot
