Colour Create - Pink and Blue

This week's Colour Create Challenge is PINK & BLUE with the extra option of something soft.  Our sponsor is Michelle's Scrapbooking.

Card Ingredients:

Stamps:  Lili of the Valley
Inks:  Distressed Inks on Watercolor Paper
Paper:  Melissa Frances
Tools:  MS Double Loop Punch, Nestie
Embellies:  Flatbacked pearls, ribbon, flowers from Wild Orchid, Magnolia Chandelier Stems-Pink, White liquid pearls, Stardust stickles

I used the sketch over at Lily of the Valley Challenge and so I will be entering it there.

I tried a thousand ways to take a good picture of this card, and it just didn't work.  I like it so much better in real life.  The colors show up so much better on the top part and you can't even see my stickles.

I was beyond excited to use my new goodies I got from Simon Says Stamp.  These Magnolia Chandelier stems are beautiful!!! I used the Liquid Pearls I got on her buttons.  Oh such little things get me excited!

It was almost a 100 degrees yesterday! Very hot! I hope everyone is getting wonderful weather wherever you are.

Thanks for stopping by!  I appreciate your sweet comments and read them all!

Be back tomorrow with a card for Just Magnolia.

Hugs, Dena
