Play Date Cafe





Loving the colours in this weeks challenge at the Play Date Cafe but no matter how hard I tried I cannot get the mint to look mint it looks aqua. Very frustrating. I used some very old DS papers from Stampin up along with an old hostess gift both from about 3 years ago but I love it when you use some old stash.
