Play Date Cafe Challenge #63


Isn't this beautiful!!....then why did I having such a hard time putting something together????
I guess that's why they call it the color challenge!! 

These colors were definitely out of my realm: green grass, gold and silver. WOW!
 Anyone who knows me knows I'm really good with pink and brown. Now that's comfortable to me!

As I stare at the inspiration photo from The Play Date Cafe, the water keeps pulling me in. Here is my interpretation for this week, hope you like ( OK, LOVE ) it!!



Thanks for looking!!!
Michelle

materials:
paper from Recollections and Bazzill; background stamp from Impression Obsession, sentiment from Papertrey Ink; inks: peeled paint distress, StazOn jet black
gold metal frame from Making Memories, silver and gold button Tm Holtz
ribbon is American Crafts; gems and gold berries from Michaels
