I was absolutely inspired to play along! Love the gorgeous samples from the team!

Gorgeous photo inspiration and projects from the DT! I have been disappointed that I have not been able to play along with the last couple of inspirations because they were so pretty. I was determined that I would get to play along with this one and I did!:)

That top hat by Lenet is so pretty. My cards are not nearly this fancy.
