More pink and yellow

I am so loving this colour combo just now – I can see me making loads more Christmas cards in these colours.  This is another of the uber quick cards I whipped up for Lili of the Valley last Friday night (I got 6 done in under 3 hours – that’s serious moving for me lol).

I could not get the soft pink colour with Copics or Promarkers so resorted to getting out the old Distress Inks again (not used these for ages and boy did I forget how to use them rofl).  I do love the soft, ethereal look the inks have given to this sweet image.

The sentiment is from one of the Adorables sets from Crafters Companion – these are going to stay out on my desk till I am done with my Christmas cards, they are amazing sentiments.  The lace and flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and I used 10mm roses, 15mm roses, cherry blossoms, 30mm Wild Roses.  The oval punches are Stampin Up and the gorge paper is Eline’s Babies Girl from Cutting Edge Crafts.

Thanks for stopping by,

  41. You got the soft pink spot on with the distress ink, such a pretty card. I wouldn't have thought of using pink and yellow together but it's very effective. I am happy to see your cherry blossom as I was looking at those flowers earlier on WOC but wanted to see them on a card and hey presto I did!
