Playdate & Cardabilities

I really liked the look of the restful colours in this week's Play Date Cafe Challenge PDCC117, and the sketch from Cardabilities #48 fit the bill as well.  Here's what I came up with:
 I stamped the background with versamark and perfect pearls mist, so it is very subtle, but with a lovely shine.  The flower was also misted with perfect pearls, and the patterned paper from Cristina Re has its own lovely shine.  
The colour of the base card hasn't come up well at all in the second photo - it is SU Bashful Blue - the first photo shows the colours much better, but the second photo shows the shine. :)
