Good morning everyone,

A quick post this morning to share my card for Ellen Hutson's Pin- Sights Challenge.

This is my take on the challenge.

Pink and green card1

I used Bohemian garden stamp set from Essentials by Ellen to white heat emboss and watercolour.  Then added some spatters with black Me. Huey. I also die cut the Be You-tiful die by Essential by Ellen using watercolour paper, then brushed pink watercolour to give an ombre effect. When dry, I stacked glued the die cut with two more die cuts. The frame is from Taylored Expression Frame in a Frame die set. I die cut using woodgrain pattern paper from My Mind's Eye and couple more from cardstock. Stacked glued them to give stability and adhered on the card front using foam adhesives. I then glued the sentiment die cut inside the frame.

Finally accented with pink and green sparkly enamel dots from Doodlebug.

Pastels are not my forte. My eyes just does not want to see pastels. I tried to tone down my colours and this is how much I could get to. lol! I love it. Hope you do too :)

Thanks for stopping by!

I do love it! I, unlike you, shy away from strong color. I blame my Mom, who always wanted me to be a lady... tone everything down. Anyway, that's me story and I'm sticking to it. This is why I love to stalk...er...see what you create because your use of bold color fascinates and delights me.
