PDCC #92! (Somewhere in Time)

Welcome! I have a card to share today for the Play Date Cafe challenge. Aren't the colors they gave us to work with enchanting!!! When I saw them the theme and stamp I've used came to mind immediately.



I call this my "Somewhere in Time" card. You know...that romantic time travel movie that was filmed on the enchanted Mackinac Island. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE that place...oh my gosh!!! I've had this stamp by Raindrops on Roses for several years. I bought it because it reminded me of Elise McKenna; one of the main characters in the movie. The stamp has only a portion of the skirt; so I trimmed that part off after stamping and added the antique gold tulle as the skirt instead. The pretty papers here are from Webster's Pages Lullaby Lane. The cardstock has a bit of a shimmer to it that I think adds to the charm. A few buttons, gems and I flourish cut with my slice complete the picture!

If you've never seen the movie...check it out I think you'll enjoy it. Be sure to drink in the scenery of the stunning Grand Hotel and the ever enchanted Mackinac Island!!!
