Play Date Cafe Challenge #46

Whoa!  This week's Play Date Cafe Challenge started out as a simple card idea and morphed into something completely different!  Our inspiration was black, white & a pop of colour - so I chose pink.  I definitely wanted to do a wallpaper background, and after changing my sentiment a couple of times, out came the flowers and it turned out much more 'bridal' looking than I intended (I blame all the PDCC designers who had a bit of a bridal thing going on this week...)  As always, I'm very happy to have come up with something that is outside of the box for me.  So here is our jumpstart photo, and what I created:

Pink flowers are Prima, ribbon Michaels, everything else is CTMH: Stamp sets are State of Mind & Damask Tiles; Cardstock is White Daisy & Black; Ink is Black; Opaque Pearls; Just Blooms Paper Flowers.
