Play Date Cafe Challenge

 I made this square card for the Play Date Cafe Challenge this week using some stamps that retired from Layers of Color and I *think* I saw something similar coming from Penny Black soon!!!  Eeks....  Looks like Nina Brackett's style to me :)

I stamped the image using Versamark ink and then sponged heavily with Memento ink, gently rubbing over the embossing to make it pop.  The background was stenciled using Belle Brocade (also retired, boo-hoo) using the two inks as well.  Anyone know of a damask stencil similar??  This was my hands down favorite and would love to get some for upcoming classes.  I added some Want2Scrap bling to each of the centers on the brocade that are showing as well as to the corners of the Spellbinders Fleur de Lis Square die.

Hope you can play along with the PDCC this week:

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful day!
