The Play Date Cafe Challenge 41 Thinking of You!

It's another fabulous challenge at The Play Date Cafe. They have another beautiful color palette picked out.

When I saw it I knew I had to play with my Cosmo Cricket Designer Paper! I am really bad about collecting paper packs and not using them, so I have made an effort to start using my designer paper more in my projects.  I also {eek} finally broke open my Martha Stewart Doilies. They are like gold to me because they are not easy to find here in Hawaii, and my Mom searched and searched for them at the Michael's near her and nothing, and my dear sweet friend who came and visited a couple of months ago brought me a pack she found at a Michael's near her. For those who do not know we do not have Michael's or Joanne's etc here. We are pretty limited.

Okay, onto the card! J
My center embellishment label was created with my Cricut using the Storybook cartridge. Then I used my circle punch and started with yellow card stock. Next I layered my Martha Stewart doily after inking the edges a bit then added my felt flower I made using two of my beautiful blooms dies and finished off with a scarlet jewell button. 

My sentiment is from The Angel Company and curled to give a banner feel! 

I hope you have a wonderful weekend. 
Warm aloha!
