A Pink and Brown Challenge


Good morning! Another week has begun! This is going to be a busy one for me -- two of my kids are finished with school this week, and two are finished next week. I have lots of teacher gifts to get finished! Plus, I'm co-hosting a bridal shower on Sunday, and there are many things left on my to-do list! I'll have some cute shower projects to share with you later this week!

But first, I have this card to share today. Christine at All That Scraps challenged the Design Team to create a project using only pink, brown, and white. This is the card I made for the challenge. The image and sentiment are from C.C. Designs. The birds are from Love Ya Much, and the sentiment is from Little Penguins. I watercolored the image with an aquapainter and SU! inks. To give the image some dimension, I drew around it with a blender pen and Soft Sky ink. The image panel and mat were cut and embossed with my new Nestabilities (Happy Mother's Day to me!).

If you'd like to play along with our Pink and Brown Challenge, leave a link to your creation here or post it on your blog, your SCS gallery, or the ATS Gallery. Christine will be posting the DT projects on the ATS Blog later on today!

I hope you have a fantastic day today -- thanks for stopping by to visit! :)

Stamps: Love Ya Much, Little Penguins (C.C. Designs) Ink: Basic Brown, Close to Cocoa, Pretty in Pink, Chocolate Chip, Soft Sky (SU!) Cardstock: Close to Cocoa, Pretty in Pink, Whisper White (SU!)
