~* The Play Date Cafe: PDCC #38 *~


Hi Everyone!
Was inspired to make a card using the photo inspiration and color palette from PDCC today. I used a Webster's Pages Life's Portrait DP as a base...but I inked it up A LOT so I don't know if you can tell anymore. I had to create my purple (luckily I had lilac and green, hehe) with several inks since I don't think I have a purple stamp pad. Used some lace and pearl trim over the stamped image that I also inked up. Also, used some pretty lilac fiber from Marie and the pretty bloom from Tracy :)! Thanks girls!
Hope you like it! Thanks for stopping by!
Have a fabulous Thursday!
*hugs* and Much aloha~!

This is so very elegant and pretty, Steph! I never would have recognized the Webster's paper under there. ;) You did a great job blending your inks and I love that flower layered over the heart.
