The Play date Challenge # 45

So over at "The Play Date Cafe," the challenge was to use the colors (above) to create...well...anything really. I chose to create a card.  Maybe next time I'll be more daring and create a 3D item.  For now, though, I wanted to try making some ric-rac flowers.  I had a few pieces of ric-rac in one of the challenge colors and set off to make the cutest flower the world has ever seen!  Well I didn't quite reach my goal, but I'm happy with these little beauties.  What great colors to remind me that Summer is coming to an end and that Autumn is just around the corner.  Hope everyone has a great (hopefully shorter) work week...
