Welcome to the April Creative Inking Blog Hop!
This month we were challenged to use the colors: Peek-a-boo Peach, Pear Pizzaz, & Flirty Flamingo together. Of course with this bright challenge my mind when straight to spring flowers. So I pulled out my Flourishing Phrases Bundle and got to work. Here is what I came up with! (And here is where I ask you to pardon the slightly 'off' white pictures- I prefer to use natural light but it has been raining HARD here the last couple days!!)
I'm not really a pink person, so my stash of Flirty Flamingo has up until now remained fairly untouched... but I do really like how this turned out! Such a pretty combo all together.
And- if you follow my blog- you know I'm not much of a fussy cutter. But I really really wanted to get the 3-D flower effect... so look what I did!!
After I had it all assembled out of it's 'paper parts' it just seemed dull still. Like it was missing something. It was at that point I added a little baker's twine (which helped) and bling-d it up with some sprinkles (which totally finished it for me). I especially like the pearls in the middle of the flower- although if you want to mail a card I can't suggest such an effect. :)
No hop along and see the amazing samples the other hoppers have put together for you!
And remember, flutterby again soon!
Great idea using the color challenge!
Wow, I love what you did with this color challenge Amber- great card!
I love adding dimension...when you put it together, you forget all about the fuss. Great card!
I love how your card matches your blog background! Thanks for sharing!!
A pretty card for a non-pink person!
