Play Date Cafe 137 - Color Splash


Yay!  It's Color Splash time at The Play Date Cafe again.  Those are my favorite challenges there, and judging by the amount of players we always get those weeks, YOU all favor them too!  

Your creations should be black and white with just a SPLASH of Cobalt Blue.

I leaned heavily on black, with some paper from My Mind's Eye -- 


Our sponsor this week is Want2Scrap, who generously provided our DT with gorgeous bling.  I used blue bling to really dress up my sentiment.



Can't wait to see your splashy creation hanging in the gallery at The Play Date Cafe!

OH, don't forget -- if you haven't already left a comment-to-win on my post HERE, please do so!  You have until 11:59 AM EST, June 21, 2012.  (One comment per person, please.)  I'll draw a winner on Friday, June 22 and post the name here that day.  :D
