Play Date cafe 2!

Thought I'd use PDC colours for this card which will be in Jeanie's box to take back to France.

It meets the requirements of weighing 20grs! actually so far it only weighs 12.7grs I have yet to add an insert and then there's the envelope so it should come in at the right weight. 
To be fare to Jeanie she has said they don't all have to weigh so little but I've found I'm on a mission! It's to do with the French postal system... I'm not quite sure how it works, something to do with not having to go to the Post office if it weighs 20grs or less .Jeanie lives in a very rural... lovely peaceful area of Northern France.

The card... after all that waffle:))  
The brown and green card have been printed from Pink Petticoats colour palette.http://www.pinkpetticoat.co.uk/  I find all the different colour choices extremely useful.
Colours ... Envy and Chocolate.
  The image is Dandelion from Lavinia stamps stamped with TH DI Frayed Burlap as is the stamp in the background on the brown card.
The little dragon fly is from Artemio stamped twice with different shade of green.
The bling and ribbon from my stash!

 I thought the original looked a bit stark so I swooshed some Adirondack Meadow  around the image .It isn't all that easy once elements are glued in place.   The image pops a bit now... esp in real life  the scanned image looks a bit pale :))

Very elegant card, I like both versions, the plain white and the second one with the meadow ink blended at the edges.
