The World Would be boring....Playdate Cafe!

The World Would be boring....The Play Date Café!
 
The smoky plums in the inspiration photo
intrigued me.
I always tend to lean toward going so literal in my interpretations of the sketch or the photo
that it trips me up.
Does that ever happen to you?
Do you ever just try too hard at it?

Well, it happens to me.  (smiles) 
Don't let it get you down, we all have better work than at other times.  Sometimes we are just more inspired that at other times too.
Just keep going forward!
 
I noticed in some perusing of cards that one I found had an ombre effect and it appealed to me.
I knew if I attempted it in purples that I wouldn't want it on a large scale.
Maybe a strip.
 
So here is my interpretation of the The Play Date Café photo:
I hope that it makes you think of a card design so that you may play along!
 
Supplies:
