Reach for the Stars on Pink Saturday!

June 25th 2011


My second post for the day but I didn't want to miss Pink Saturday this week!! (Last week it went clean out of my head!!!)


I've made this gorgeous pink card with one of the new release Solitaire Designs and Sentiment from CS Designs. I wanted to add wings to the card to also enter this in Vicki's new challenge at The Cheerful Stamp Pad Blog. I've made a collage type background with a whole range of pink toned papers. The image and background for the sentiment have been coloured with Copics and the butterflies are from a collage sheet which is a freebie from Digital Collage Sheets. The butterflies were printed on an opaque vellum type paper so they are translucent looking and look great on the card as they are "rolling up" of their own accord and making the whole thing look more 3 dimensional - great effect!


I love pink!!! And can't wait unitl next Saturday for another chance to create with pink!

I've also added this to the Summer of Colour Blog this week after my blogging 'friend' Annette suggested it! I have been following the colour blog but hadn't entered any "colourful" creations yet!!! Well this is my first so I hope I can join in with some more of the upcoming "colours'!!

Oh, that's just wonderful! The mood fits with your theme, and all the colors are just so. Wouldn't want to change a thing--not even a wee tiny touch.
