PDCC75 - Wplus9

Wednesday, March 30, 2011

Note: If you've come here looking for the Wplus9 April Release Sneak Peek: Day 4, please scroll down; but please, also be sure to check out today's PDCC color challenge, boasting more from that release.  We'd LOVE to have you play along for a chance to win a Wplus9 treat!

Welcome to The Play Date Cafe's Challenge #75!
Our sponsor is none other than Wplus9 Design with a prize of a stamp set of the winner's choice, from the Wplus9 Design Online Store, up for grabs.  How fun!
And because we're right in the middle of the Wplus9 Design April Release and lucky enough to have them sponsoring this week's PDCC challenge, I'll be showing off brand new goodies, which will be available this coming April 1st, as well as a couple of oldies but goodies, while the rest of the girls have been blessed to play with other beauties, of their choosing, from the Wplus9 Design Online Store.  Thanks so much, Dawn!  Now, please check my inspiration!
I started this card by silver embossing the scrolled, frame image, from Filigreed Frames, on a piece of speckled, turquoise, patterned paper; edging it, down both its longs sides, with punched strips of Cameo Coral cardstock; machine stitching, with white-threaded, straight stitches, just inside that punched edging; and adhering the entire prepped piece to the Basic Grey, cardstock, card face.
I, then, wrapped a white, seam binding ribbon, vertically, around the center of the card face; tied it, in a dressy bow, near the top edge of the card face; and embellished it with a turquoise, paper rose.
The larger frame was die-cut, using our new, Label Layers I die, which also will be available this coming Friday, from a piece of vellum; adhered behind a piece of Whisper White cardstock, which had been die-cut using the All Occasions Label die and stamped, in Basic Grey ink, with the frame, from All Occasion Tags, as well as, in Tempting Turquoise ink, with the "CONGRATS SO HAPPY FOR YOU" sentiment, which is two stamps from Filigreed Frames, before being adhered, with dimensionals, just below the embellished bow.
A row of clear gemstones, adhered just below the stamped sentiment, completes the look.
That's all, from here, for today; but please be sure to check out all the beautiful creations the rest of my uber talented teammates have cooked up for you.  Plus, you're in for a real treat, because some of my teammates, over at Wplus9 Design, have also joined in this week's color story, using even more, April Release treats.  So, please be sure to watch for their projects in the PDCC inlinkz, and have a terrific Thursday, everyone!  Oh!  And I almost forgot!  You have until Tuesday, April 5, 2011, at 11:59 pm EST, to play along with us.  Can't wait to see what you do!

I love vellum and I think that's a great way to add a subtle layer to this card. Woo hoo for the WPlus9 excitement.
