Monday Play Date with Ippity!

Welcome to this week's H{ippity} Hop! I decided to play along with the Play Date Cafe Challenge 39 so I am sharing that card today for the hop! It's been awhile since I participated in a challenge, I can never seem to get my act together in time but since this challenge was "Dublin Style" it spoke to me! My family is from Ireland and although I've only been to Dublin twice, I LOVE IT and can't wait to go back, it is such a quaint little city and you feel at home immediately!


This particular challenge is a color challenge and immediately a Pint of Guinness came to mind because of the colors and "Dublin" but I thought I would go in a different direction since I have been dying to ink up the Music of My Heart set by ippity. (On sale now for $14.00 and FREE shipping!)




So here is my card using Anna Griffin and Cosmo Cricket DP (I know, weird combination!) along with kraft cardstock and Black Bazzill. The flower is a bit big for this card but I made it this morning before work (lol!) and that is all I had on hand. If it were a bit smaller, I think it would look much better.




Anna Griffin, Cosmo Cricket DP, Kraft cardstock, Webster's Pages scalloped sparklers, wrinkly ribbon, Ippity Music of My Heart stamps, Vintage Sheet Music & Decoupage Flower, Memento Tuxedo black ink, black Bazzill


Thanks for stopping by! Come back tomorrow if you want to see how I made my wrinkly ribbon. Next stop on the hop is Jen Marie!
