Play Date Cafe 141 - One in a Million


Hi!  This week's Play Date Cafe palette includes FOUR colors:  Mint, Soft Yellow, Coral and Tulip.  At first, I thought, how am I going to do this?  After pulling out a Girls' Paperie Paper Girl kit, I had my answer!

The button, lacy die cut, and rectangle die cut are all from that kit.  The Sage Shadow base and embossed So Saffron piece I had on hand already.



DRS Designs is our sponsor this week, and they graciously allowed us to choose some stamps to showcase.  I chose the Star Wreath, and the sentiment called "One In A Million".  Thanks, DRS!



I used the wreath in two ways:  first as a border, stamped in Sage Shadow on the base, and second by cutting out individual stars.  I colored them and applied Crystal Effects glossy accents.


 One lucky Cup of the Week winner gets to shop at DRS Designs.  It could be YOU!

Thanks for dropping in today.  :-)
