I think Lauren likes purple, which is why she chose this dress! It's such a sweet little dress, too! I can picture a little toddler running around barefoot in it! So cute! Well, here is a collage of what the girls on the DT did with it.
Hmmm....I can't wait to visit everyone's blogs to see the full cards! I'm just as intrigued as you! Well here is mine and it has a story behind it, so make sure you read on.You can see that I really used all aspects of the dress in my card! Sometimes I like to replicate the inspiration piece, and sometimes I just take something from it like the colors, shape or feel of it. I wanted to use the colors, so I went to my PTI Black and White Basics dp and accidentally stumbled upon this paper. It totally matched the pattern in the dress, except it didn't have any color, so I colored it with my copic markers! Voila! It matched the dress! That was a lucky find! I also used the black satin ribbon and the crystals which I picked up from the dress. The blossom nesties were inevitable as they matched the flowers in the dp.
Now for the image. This is a very special image Paper Makeup Stamps (Katie Cotton) created as a charitable digi stamp called A Fairy for Kayleigh. All the proceeds will go to a sweet little baby named Kayleigh and her family to help with Kayleigh's struggle for life. You can read about little Kayleigh and her family here. It's such a heart-wrenching story, and I know you'll be teary-eyed reading about it. I know I was. If you want to help this family, you can do so by donating directly on their blog, or if you like this image, you can purchase it here at PMS and know that 100% of the proceeds will go to this family. It's such a beautiful image, and it took my breath away when I first saw it! I had to make this a Mother's Day card for my mom, but it could be used for a baby shower, to welcome a new baby, or even a congratulations on a new pregnancy. So many uses for it, and it's for a great cause!
I hope you enjoyed today's post and I can't wait to see what you create with this challenge. If you do play, please link your card to Mr. Linky on Lauren's blog. And if you post to SCS or another forum, please use the code MTTI01 so we can find it! Now if you want to see the cards the DT has made, stop by their blogs and leave some love! We'll be around to your blogs leaving some too! Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping!
