Play Date Cafe Challenge #188

ETA: Good morning! This is my second post for today. To see my Day 1 preview post for the Waltzingmouse Stamps June release, please scroll down or click here!

Hello there!

The week is almost over.. another month almost flown by! It is time once again for me to share this week's Play Date Cafe color challenge.

This week's color story is a girlie, romantic one featuring raspberry, pastel pink, and lilac.

I needed a birthday card for a very special little girl, so this week's colors were a perfect starting point.

I used the balloon stamps from Verve's Birthday Bash set on this card. I stamped everything first on my card base and then paper pieced it from the colored cardstock. Star Dust Stickles add some glittery touches.

I hope you will join us for this week's challenge! You can link up your creation over at The Play Date Cafe Blog. You have through Tuesday, July 2nd to play along. While you're there, you can check out the Cup of the Week prize from this week's challenge sponsor, Elizabeth Mindemann, an independent Close to my Heart consultant! She is offering a beautiful stamp set for this week's prize.

I can't wait to see what you create! I hope you'll join us!
