Happy Birthday Play Date Cafe

Hello Bloggers!

I'm just finding time to fit in a post whilst making a birthday cake for my little 4 year old. What was meant to be a little morning tea in the local park, has now turned into a a much larger affair - which means I have to actually make some effort!

Play Date Cafe  is celebrating its 3rd birthday which means lots of lovely prizes up for grabs and a facelift for the blog.  The colours this week are:

Perhaps it's just me but I truly found this the most difficult colour challenge yet. They're certainly not colours that I would think of putting together and I had absolutely nothing resembling them amongst my patterned papers.  In the end I got out my Autumn Leaves flourishes and inks and had a play. It resulted in half a sheet of heavily patterned paper so I cut some panels and came up with this:

The ribbon is blue and the button is a kind of grape colour but it doesn't show in the photo - they kind of look black don't they?

Well, back to the cake baking.....thanks for stopping by,
