WMS Challenge #31 and Play Date Cafe #85

Hmmmm .... tricky colours but I am up for a "make you think" kind of challenge.  The blueberry colour was my stumbling block as I don't have ink that colour, and the Versacolor indigo I do have didn't go with the SU Blueberry Crisp DSP I had in mind to use.  So went to the hostess 6 x 6 paper pack and used Concorde Crush instead (don't think I will be buying anything in this colour, just doesn't work for me).  

I think, for once the photo makes the card look better.  Had to give my new seam binding a whirl so I coloured it with Copic R85 (apparently a match for Regal Rose as suggested somewhere, long ago).  And Victorian Frippery finally came out of its packaging for a run, just love the patterns in this set.

Well it's the Queen's Birthday long weekend for us, which of course means we have put off doing anything remotely resembling housework till today.  Suppose we had better get started ... maybe just one more card!

What you need
Cardstock - SU Very Vanilla
DSP - SU Hostess 6 x 6 pad
Stamps - WMS Victorian Frippery
Ink - SU Regal Rose;  Versacolor Indigo
Seam binding, Copic R85, embroidery thread
Buttons - PTI Sweet Blush
Gems - Kaisercraft
