Play Date Cafe #174

Here is the card I made for the Playdate cafe challenge. Somehow the bluish green comes out as blue on the picture - in real life it is a little more green, but anyhow, I think its close enough for the challenge. I cut lots of 1/4 inch strips, pasted them together and cut them again diagonally into 1 inch strips. Re-taped everything together and adhered it to the white card base. Somewhat tedious process. I prefer usually quicker things, but i still like how the card looks like. The sentiment is from  Hero Arts  - Leaf Print, the flower is Memory Box Chloe Stem die.









I got sooo many lovely comments on my last blog post - thank you all! I really appreciate your comments and your time coming to my blog.

I wanted to share some more pictures from my Texas trip. I went to the San Antonio Botanic Garden. It is very pretty. Lot of flowers were in bloom and it was a lovely warm day - not like here right now, where we got another prediction of snow, brrrr.......



Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Die Arbeit hat sich gelohnt denn deine Karte sieht wirklich toll aus!
Mal was anderes, diese versetzten Streifen finde ich sehr Wirkungsvoll!
Super Fotos sind das wieder... du bist nicht nur beim Karten basteln ein As, sondern auch beim Fotografieren!!

This is stunning - what a labor of love cutting all those strips! The result is so beautiful, though. Love your Botanical Garden pictures as well - my husband and I love to head there for photos. So glad you could join us for this week's Play Date Cafe Challenge!
