Play Date Cafe Challenge

So I came across this really cool challenge blog called The Play Date Cafe.  This weeks challenge was using the colors Lavender, White, and a Pastel Green.  I LOVE each of these colors individually but I have never combined them before.  I am just going to write the basics as I am a little under the weather today and just typing this is exhausting!


I used Let Them Eat Cake from Flourishes.  Neenah paper, Bazzill Dotted Swiss, Some white organdy ribbon from my stash I colored with my copic G82, Stampin Up! Scallop Flower Punch, Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, Shimmerz Candle Light and Key Lime for the Flower, Shimmerz Iced Lavender over the cake, clear button from stash colored with copic BV13, CTMH Colonial White inked around edges of cake, cake colored with BV00, BV02, BV04, and BV13.

You get a really good idea of the shimmer on the cake with this picture.

Here is a good close up of the flower - -you can also see the shading I did with the copics.  It really does look nice in person - -the shimmerz just make it harder to photograph! 

Thanks for looking!
