DCWV - July Stack-a-holic Challenge

Hello, there's a new Stack-a-holic Challenge over at DCWV for July.  There's a new challenge every month with both a card sketch and a layout sketch.  I was inspired by the layout sketch and created this single page layout with the new Minty Lace stack available at AC Moore.  I just love the soft mints and pinks combined with the black and white papers. The background with the ampersand pattern is so awesome, although it's a tad difficult to see the mint and pink ampersands.  I'm also loving the sentiment tags which make it so easy to create a layout page. The tag I used for the title is one of my favorites, such a lovely reminder!
I added a few embellishments from my stash to accent my layout page. I tucked in a black doily and adorned it with the same bling that I used for the flower centers.  My photo mats were embellished with some Black Licorice Trendy Twine for a pop of color against the pale pink.  A bit of washi tape was used to decorate the smile tag and more washi was used to represent the chevrons in the sketch. A sprinkling of pink enamel dots was the finishing touch on my layout page.
Here is the layout sketch for the Stack-a-holic challenge which inspired my layout page:
Here is the card sketch for card makers:
More details will be available a bit later today so remember to head on over to DCWV to check out the design team projects and to enter this month's challenge for a chance to win a DCWV stack. Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a fantastic day!
