Will You Marry Me? The Play Date Cafe Challenge



It's my favorite kinda challenge over at The Play Date Cafe...

I LoVe working with 'color splash' challenges
and this one is a little 'different'.
Usually, we require black and white with just one
option of additional color.  This time, there are
three colors to choose from...
pink, copper or gold.


I chose a combination of the pink for the dress and a bit
of a copper-tone for the tuxedo shirt.
I layered vintage lace around the bodice of the dress
and embellished with Prima rhinestones and a paper flower.
The tux shirt & silk rose were inked with Tim Holtz Distress Ink
in 'Tattered Rose' and the buttons are birthstone pearls 
from Martha Stewart.

We are being sponsored this week by


They provided the our team with these wonderful
die cuts in a wedding theme.  You have got to see what the
rest of the world's best design team came up with to inspire
you to play along with these fabby colors.
There is a terrific $40 prize package up for grabs to the
winner of this week's challenge, so you have to play!
Head on over to The Play Date Cafe....

I'll see you there!
