Play Date Cafe Challenge 83

 I discovered a new color challenge - Play Date Cafe Challenge.

     The challenge is black and white with a splash of green!

so...I thought I had to give it a try!

I used a sketch from the Viva La Verve Sketch Challenge # 5 
which was designed by the Verve Diva Tosha Leyendekker

This sketch was difficult for me with these skewed panels and the 3 panels on the bottom!
I had to really concentrate! heehee!

The green does not show up as bright as it is in real life. Darn it!
(I guess I'm gonna need to invest in a photo tent if I'm gonna keep up with this blogging stuff!)

I paper pieced some of the corners to give some depth to the panels. I didn't ink any edges, which is unusual for me! I was trying to keep it sharp and crisp. I don't know if I accomplished that or not.
 I then drew some lines with the black Stickles thru the rays of the star to give it some sparkle!


well...thanks again for stopping by! I just love visitors!
