Play Date Cafe 104 - Beautiful You



Welcome to the 2nd Anniversary of the  Play Date Cafe!  We've got some very special prizes for our challenge this week.  The goodies are going to make several winners really happy!  Our sponsors this week:  Layers of Color, Sweet Stamp Shop and The Twinery

As soon as Jaclyn put up this color story, I knew right away what I could do with it.


The focal point is a sticker from K & Co. that I've had since the summer.  I think it's so beautiful!  I set it upon a piece of white cardstock, stamped with script and then punched.   


The sentiment is from Verve's Celebrating You.  The background paper is Anna Griffin.  The green strip is a Stampin' Up! sticker - and of course, it's retired (so many of my SU things are).




I hope you get a chance to play with us for this extra-wonderful week at The Cafe!
