Dollies love COLOR, and i LOVE PegasusMaiden!

heya, chickens!
it's late, and i spent most of the day sleeping in an effort to kick a migraine (i succeeded!), so now i'm wide awake and playing catch up!

first things first... it's Color Challenge day for the Design Dollies!
the challenge this week?
black, burgundy and yellow... wasn't sure where i wanted to take this one, but BasicGrey's "Sugared" and "Origins" helped me out. here's my sample:

with a SERIOUSLY yummy piece of trim, courtesy of the lovely Lauren (still playing with my parting gifts -thanks, doll!). check it out:

(i added the little strand of pearls)


and i was TOTALLY inspired by THIS:

which is from the Etsy Inspired Challenge #106 (i WANT that piece from PegasusMaiden!)

and i'm playing along with...
Stamptacular Sunday - they want to see a GRID PATTERN on your project
The Secret Crafter - Anything Goes!

back tomorrow as i'm off to work on some more pretties (using BasicGrey's MARJOLAINE) - the girl who had invited me to her hostess party last month (where i was going to sell a slew of cards) had to reschedule for the 29th, so i'm gettin' geared up!


  1. Oh, this is ADORABLE!!!!!!

    Trying to catch up since I've been away on vacation.

    (pssst....check out my blog today. you might recognize the digi!)

  2. Love this color combo....turned out PERFECT!!!

    So glad the migraine is gone!!!

  3. H1 Leah, this is really sweet! I love the color combo, and all the little details, like the addition of pearls around the scalloped circle, so delicate! the lace is very feminine and chic.
    Thank you for joining us at Stamptacular Sunday Challenge and hope to see you again soon.

  4. Beautiful!! Hope you are feeling back to your normal self now!

    Deanne :)

  5. Your card is absolutely stunning! Just gorgeous! And that hair piece - well, I need it. Enough Said. For reals.

  6. Love the card! Just wish I was in a scrappy mood, like last month. (Where I completed all but 2 dollies challenges!) With the kids starting school, signing up for extra things, no time to or motivation to scrap.

  7. Such a lovely card! I love that lace & the pearls. Clever addage of the "grid" paper. Thanks for joining our challenge at SSC this week.
