Wonderful Friend

Hi There!!!

It's Colour Challenge time again and this week Kristina most definately set a HARD one.... gosh, I most definately struggled with this one... but I wasn't going to give in... Here is the inspiration picture for this week:-

The colours we had to use were Ruby Red, Pretty in Pink, Pumpkin Pie and Whisper White.

And here is the card I came up with:-

I used Whisper White as the base of my card... and in hindsight... probably NOT such a wise choice.. but that's what I started with, so I told myself that's what I'll finish with. I used the same technique that Kristina used on her MACM - Love You Card by scalloping the bottom of the white card and adding a piece of Pretty in Pink on the bottom, which I also added some paper piercing to. I used my Boho Backgrounds stamp set and stamped the flower stamp in Pumpkin Pie, Ruby Red and Pretty in Pink then restamped the centre flower in the same colours before I added a tiny bit of 'SPARKLE' then I attached it to each of the images with a silver brad and used Dimensionals to add them to the card. The sentiment 'Wonderful Friend' is also from the Boho Background set which I've stamped in Ruby Red and underlined with the dots on the same stamp which I coloured with my Markers...(oohhh I do LOVE my new markers!!!)
I then added some Pretty in Pink ribbon to finish it off.

So there you have it... for me A VERY tough challenge... and I'm still not sure that I'm happy with the end result.. but I did promise myself I'd get a card done for this challenge.

Hope you like it.
