Play Date Cafe Challenge

Made a bit of a mistake here lol
Thought I rememebered it as red, pink and green !!!!  But, hey  I got pink wings, red strawberrys, and blue skyand blue flakes, so hope it conforms with the rules [eeek that was a bit close]    Not sure it is strawberry time, but we can look forward to that time !

My strawberry gal is an old stamp by 'Inca Stamps' but found her in the very back of my cupboard and still like her.
I used the technique we learnt last Saturday at the Pickleberry Craft [look at her site] workshop using wax.  Dipping a paper napkin, which has been pulled apart to the top layer,  into the melt pot filled with melted wax. Placed onto the card using tweezers] and swiped with a plastic credit card [hmm obviously plastic duh!]  The blue and gold flakes need to be pressed into the wax, but if they don't first time, just melt again with a heat gun, and press again, they are so thin they will go into the wax easily.

Daubers in pale blue for the sky and pink [yes PINK] edge to the card and hope it is accepted  !!!!
