So I was at my LSS, New England Scrapbook Co. the other day and saw the American Crafts Dear Lizzy Ruffled Crepe paper. How I could work there and not have known it was there is beyond my capacity to understand, because it has been there for quite a while and is quite unique. But when I saw the colors, I knew they were perfect for The Play Date Cafe Challenge and I was compelled to find a use for this interesting product that had escaped me for so long.
So the inspiration from The Play Date Cafe was . . .
And the Dear Lizzy Ruffled Crepe Paper looks like this . . .
When I first saw this . . . I laughed. I toyed with buying a few and using my Tim Holtz Tiny attacher to fashion me a skirt. It was actually the bottom rung that was just calling to me for this challenge. So, here is my design . . .
Love the "champagne" colors for this challenge. It all came together quite nicely, and I can't wait to make more ruffles (I ended up buying the yellow and white version of the ruffles as well).
And the inside of my card . . .
The sentiment is under the vellum.
And I liked this card yesterday . . . but I love it today! I don't always LOVE my stuff.
Thanks American Crafts! That was fun.
