Put On Your Party Dress

During the last big Unity sale in October, I ordered a bunch of awesome stamps and that box arrived earlier this week! Now that they're finally in my hands I couldn't be happier and I'll be making a lot of cards with them so I hope you love Unity as much as I do. ;) Today's card is for the Play Date Cafe Challenge #57 and features the Unity set Undeniably You as well as a gorgeous background called Tea Time Toile. For PDCC57, we are to use the colours shown at left. I loved working with these dark colours and making them feminine! My brown elements are the card base and dress image. I used gray for the background panel and shading on the dress. The silver is in the stitching, circle nestie and the sparkles on the necklace and belt. Since the silver paper was so reflective, it was difficult to take a good close up shot so you see the camera lens and part of my hand in it. LOL
