Play Date Cafe Challenge

I thought I would dig deep into my craft stash, which is still packed, to enter the special PDCC for their anniversary [congratulations and long may you continue]                           As most of you know, my dear OH died in September, so I haven't had time ,or heart to craft.  After a lovely week with my Bessie and her family, in Norfolk, I felt the urge to do something, so where better to go than to PDCC and the bright colour combination drew my eye immediately.
The colours are orange, yellow and bright pink, so out came the faithful Cuttlebug and a couple of dies. I bought the bird house at Ally Pally and it hadn't been unpacked let alone used.  I inked and stamped the grass with 'elusiveimages' stamp, sponged with pink Viva Paper-soft-colour, a mirror in the middle of the birdhouse and finished round the edges with pro marker
