The Play Date Cafe Challenge - PDCC66

Tuesday, February 1, 2011

Hello! It's my first time playing along with The Play Date Cafe challenge...and WHEW,
I've only got a couple hours to spare before the deadline! I saw the colors and COULD NOT
pass this up! I LOVE purple, so I was very excited to make a card for this challenge.
You have to use black & white, and a SPLASH of lilac/purple. Just gorgeous!

This is what I created. I. LUV. IT. I'm such a sucker for girly, pretty, romantic-y designs.
This was a very simple card to make. The lilac part is one stamp from the Papertrey set Giga Guide Lines -- I stamped it twice right next to each other, and put a white pearl in the center.
The patterned paper is actually flocking, so it gives it some extra texture!

Thanks so much for visiting me today!
