Hey dear friends let's take a ride in the countryside...pale pink flower...

Happy Friday, Sistahs!! It's one of my favorite days of the week! Not only is it Friday, but it's Bellariffic Friday! This week, our challenge was to create a Pink & Brown card...such a hard challenge! *wink*


I chose my Bloomin Pots stamp and stamped the image in Memento Tuxedo Black on Neenah Solar White cardstock. I colored the image with various brown & pink Copic markers and added Ranger Crackle Accents to the pots to give them a little more character. The flower centers are accented with flatbacked pearls...I am so addicted to those little things!! After I sponged the edges of the panel with Close to Cocoa ink, I adhered it to the Chocolate scalloped panel and stitched around the edges of the main image. I pierced the back of the scallops so the piercing would give a little rougher texture, then tied a bow around the bottom wtih my pink striped ribbon. My finished card measures 4 1/4" square, and I added layers of Chocolate and Pink Pirouette on top. Layer on my main image and voila! All finished!

I will be back this afternoon to post the winner of the blog candy...still a little more time until then, so if you haven't entered yet, go for it!! Here's the post: BLOG CANDY.
