Lilac Dress Form Just Because card for PDCC66 and C&S #125 Challenges

 Happy Monday!!!
This is my 2nd post of the day so be sure to check out my Squigglefly Monday Challenge card!!

Today, I made another card using some of the same elements that I did on Saturday.  I decided to combine challenges again.  The first challenge I am using is the Play Date Cafe #66 Color Splash Challenge.  This is a color splash challenge which means you basically use black and white and a splash of the color chosen. This week the color is lilac. I do hope that gray is also allowed, but if not, I still love how this card turned out.  The second challenge I'm using with my card is the C&S #125 Sketch Challenge.  Oh, how I just love, love, love this sketch!!!  In fact, I'm off to make several more cards using this sketch because it's so easy and just looks amazing!

Here's my card!

That splash of lilac is just amazing!  And.....I finally got to use my new twine from The Twinery!!!

I had a strip of the fading plaid left over so it looked perfect on the inside of the card.

Materials Used (All PTI, unless otherwise noted):
Simple Sentiments stamp set
Signature Series: Dress Form die   
Shery K Designs - Plaid Mega Paper Pack
True Black and Stamper's Select White
Kaiser Craft grosgrain ribbon pack - Grape
