C'est La Vie

It has been a while since cardmaking happened in my house, its been a little hectic, you know? So today when I had some things that needed to be finished, I sat down with no mojo. Then I remembered that I had not yet played along with this week's Play Date Cafe Challenge, and I knew that would be the kick I needed.

Here's the color story for this color splash week:

And my card:

I used images from the Wplus9 sets C'est La Vie and Defining Words. I am in love with the bow around the waist of the dress form.

I always feel like such a procrastinator when I wait until the last minute to take on these challenges, but today it worked out perfectly! Have a lovely evening!
