Pretty in Pink

Good morning, well, it is where I am. I having a fun time looking for and trying out different design challenges, there are so many different ones to pick from. Wished I had time to try them all.

Today, I made a card from the Midnight Madness 21 challenge.


I was looking through my paper stash, I sure have a lot of pink..... so you will be seeing a lot of it.
This one featured a pink and brown theme. Most of my flowers are made out of silk hydrangeas and I just removed all of the petals. This way, I can mix and match as needed. I have found it is much cheaper too. For this one, I took a tan petal and inked it with a darker brown to go better with the card colors. Added a little beaded accent and voila!





Supplies:
Papers by DCWV & Heidi Grace Design for Fiskars
Stamp by Magnolia (Tilda in Hat Sitting)
Others: Border Punch by Martha Stewart, Brad by Bazzilil Basic Paper (Cajun), ribbon and beads.
