The colors in the Play Date inspiration seem very modern and bold to me, so I tried to step a little out of my comfort zone...a very little. I kept a LOT of white, then used these bold colors in my little "cameo".
I originally just had the little cameo by itself in the corner and it was getting lost. So I remembered this week's Less Is More challenge of "ovals". I added a row of orders as a border. I like the concept, but I should have popped them or something as it gets a little lost.
I am also entering at Simon Says Stamp: Emboss It as this card includes dry embossing and heat embossing.
