I hit gold when I found a sheet of mint cardstock....I don't dabble in mint but my daughter picked some up for a project she worked on last year:


The sentiment has been heat embossed in gold...LOVE that look on the mint.  You can't tell by the picture but the steam has been heat embossed with Psychedelic embossing powder...it has some nice glitz to it.

On a sad note, this will be Ruby McGuire of Ruby 2 Shoes last challenge with The Play Date Cafe!  We wish her all the success in her new journeys! 

I can't wait to see how you're inspired by the colors this week!
