Play Date Cafe 119 - Beautiful You


It's Color Splash week at The Play Date Cafe!  Yay!  These are always my favorite.  This week's splash is a Bright Pink.  Remember to use just a splash - just a tiny bit of this pink. ;)

I can't wait to show you what I made.  I love it!
I knew I wanted to use this dress form from The Girls' Paperie Paper Girl set, and I had already stamped the image.  It was lying on the table, and I had the lace out for another project.  I threw a small piece (headed for the trash) near the dress form, and voila! - an idea was born.

The Bella Toile background stamp from Stampin' Up! (sadly, retired) seemed a perfect fit for this ultra-girly card.  The sentiment and flourish are from Verve's Celebrating You set.

Our sponsor this week is the ever-popular, much-loved The Twinery!


Go check out what my teammates created for you this week.  There's more than just cards to see!  And while you're there, check out the prize up for grabs too.  ;)

I love it, too, Colleen! NOW I know what you meant when you wrote that we were on the same wave-length. Isn't that funny that we both made cards that were black/white + a splash of color in the past week that focused on dress forms?? I love the little lace skirt you gave yours. So frilly and fun!

What a great way to use the lace, Colleen. And, she really knows her accessories...love the blingy necklace. Toile is one of my favorite things. Too bad it is retired.
