Pink and Blue...

...and I added some glitter too.

Challenge 105 over on the "LOTV" site askes that Pink & Blue be used to create a card. Now I'm not a great lover of these two colours used together - I prefer them on their own or used with brown (pink & brown always reminds me of chocolate dipped strawberries or ice-cream with chocolate sauce...yummy) - but isn't the point of challenges to get us to think outside of our comfort zones?

Anyhoo, I've given it a go and this is what I came up with...
I went for a larger card format so that I could have a play around with the layout.
This little fairy miss just had to have glittery wings and I also added a bit to her crown.
The spine of the card has been covered with a blue (embossed) dotty CS that I punched down one edge with my Martha Stewart Doily border punch and then inked with 'Tumbled glass' distress ink - I used the same ink pad to ink the edge of the image panel. The LOTV image was a printed image that came free with the latest Papercraft Inspirations magazine that I coloured with my Copic pens. The main PP on the card is some Hunkydory PP that came as a freebie with Creative Cards magazine - the edges have been inked with 'Victorian velvet'. The sentiment is a die-cut panel from Kanban and the blooms are a selection from various sources. A piece of crystal ribbon in pink and some felt butterfiles finish it off. It would not have been my choice to use these colours but I'm actually rather pleased with the way it turned out.........................................
