The Play Date Cafe #148

This week's challenge at the Play Date Cafe was Peach, Navy Blue, and Stone.  The colors were a bit daunting for me.  I picked out some patterns from Basic Grey which included the peach and navy, and then I added the stone by using a dark gray ink and some gray cardstock and button. 

Now the inspiration photo had some netting within, and that gave me the idea to use my new hexagon die from Papertrey Ink.  I had never purchased their stamps, but hexagons have been all the rage and I just had to have this die and stamp set for my collection.  I cut the base of the die in the peach toned Basic Grey, and then cut some inner pieces of navy and the second Basic Grey pattern paper.  I then pieced the background together.  What's nice is that the die is an A2 card size, so it fit perfectly on teh card base. 

Hmmm . . . in regular light that button looks grey, and in the picture it has a green tinge.  I may be performing a button transplant a bit later in the evening. 

Supplies Used:  Paper from Bazzill and Basic Grey; Hexagon Die, Outline Stamp and Sentiment from Papertrey Ink; Fiskars Circle Punch; Button from my stash; Ribbon from Close To My Heart; Ink from Stampin' Up;
