I've been getting teased quite a bit recently that I use a lot of pink despite my dislike of the color! Apparently, my gal pals Kim, Jen and Roni are right - somewhat! I will concede that I have been touching my girly side a lot more lately but nothing floats my boat like a nice brown, beige or warm "autumn-y" color!
This card features some of my luscious playthings - Prima patterned paper and blossom, Zva crystals, PTI button and silk ribbon, Martha Stewart doily, Girls' Paperie lettering and handmade crinkle seam binding. Yes, I did dye it pink myself but I used Gimmer mist that I won - otherwise I wouldn't have pink glimmer mist! It would be bad to let free product go to waste, right - just think of me as a "green" crafter - reduce, reuse, recycle and all that -
The colors come from the current Play Date Cafe Challenge - It is their one year anniversary and I LOVE playing their challenges!! The sketch is courtesy of Card Patterns #87 and CARDS is looking for projects with bling this week.
Am I the only one or do you suddenly find yourself reaching for colors or embellishments that you wouldn't normally reach for? It is good for me to be more colorful but now I think I will go sit in my nice, peaceful beige and sage green living room!
