Play Date Cafe Challenge #37

Look at the beautiful picture that Julie selected for this weeks challenge at the Play Date Cafe Challenge.  This weeks the colors are drawn from the picture and no color swatches. :) So you get to pick your inspiration from the color palette.



This week's picture fit right in with some fun trim I just purchased and wanted to use on a card.



The Cosmo Cricket Material Girl paper was a perfect match for the beautiful trim. Not only that but I love the rulers lines as it reminded me of the shelves in the inspiration photo.

I had the trim, the paper with the cut out circle, the dress form and the sentiment all figured out. Then I got stuck, I stamped the other images and didn't know what to do with them. I walked up to my daughter Tanya and asked her to figure out how to use the pieces on the card. I walked back 5 minutes later and voila!  She had placed the items just as you see them.

So nice to have a backup designer in the house!

Products:

The rest of the design team also created some beautiful projects using the inspiration colors. 


I think this week is going to be fun to see how everyone interprets and uses the color palette!
