~* Colour Splash with Sarah Anderson - The Play Date Cafe Challenge PDCC66 *~



Hi Everyone!

What a busy, busy, sort of stressful week! So glad I had a day off today! I saw the challenge at The Play Date Cafe - PDCC66, but didn't have a chance to play...(I remembered about the challenge when I saw Amy's fabulous card :).)

Here's my take on the Colour Splash challenge by Sarah Anderson. I used my favorite Pooch & Sweetheart papers. I added some black lace, May Arts pleated satin trim that I folded in half, and some halfback pearls. There is a Tattered Angels frame. The edges were inked with Tim Holtz's milled lavender distress ink. I added black enamel accents to the Maya Road dressform chipboard piece (I love theses chipboard shapes, hehe, saw they have bigger versions this CHA). I then added some tiny pearls for her necklace and a tiny lilac paper rose.

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you have a lovely week!
*hugs* and Much aloha sweets~!
Steph :)

What a very, very pretty card, Steph! Love all the black with the touches of purple. That TA chipboard frame looks fabulous, as do the pearls. Love the layered trim and the enameled dress form, too. :)
Don't know what's going on with the email thing??? I haven't seen anything from you, besides that one little response. Can't figure out what the heck the problem would be. I'm so sorry........
