Play Date Cafe Challenge 51

Playing at the Play Date Cafe again!  This week's color challenge was to use the following colors: beige, blue and a light mint green.  If you haven't checked out the Play Date Cafe blog I want to encourage you to take a look.  Every week I see colors that I would have thought not to combine, and every week I am inspired by the entries and creativity of some amazing crafters.  I wanted to create a card and a matching gift bag.  I used a small box as a template for my gift bag,   Once I got my measurements I carefully scored and cut one 8 1/2" x 11" piece of cardstock.   That's all it took, one piece of cardstock. I know, can you believe that?!  Creating the card really came together when I found a piece of trim that had the colors of the challenge.  Thank you for stopping by and taking a look.
