PPC #50

Good afternoon all.

I hope I find you well. This is week 50 over at Picture Perfect Creations 
and we have another fab colour combo.

I always get a bit of a panic on when I see pink and orange on a colour combo because everything I was taught about colours clashing comes back and slaps me.
I took a deep breath and just went for it. Here is my card,
Biggest apologise for the photo, it`s the dullest day ever here today and it`s taken all the brightness out of the pink DP.

I used dark brown base card.
The DP are both by Pink Petticoat and are Daisies and pinstripes in Little Fleurs pink, matted onto white card.
I`ve added a border in white by punching with a Fiskars border punch.
The image is Stampendous Agapanthus stamped in  Versa colour Orchid and cut out with a spellbinders lacey circle die.
I stamped an Elusive Images Butterfly in Versa Colour Orange onto Parchment paper and cut it out then stuck it to my flower image.
The sentiment is Flourishes taglines stamped in Versafine Black.

The girls over on PPC are also asking for new design team members so I`m entering this card for that too although I`m not over confident. Still if you don`t try...

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx


  1. Oh you've got to be joking Lynne . . . this card is BEAUTIFUL and so delicate. I think you'll stand a good chance of getting on the DT with it. GOOD LUCK! Know what you mean about orange & pink . . . I'd balk at it too!
    Hugs, Sandra

  2. This is stunning Lynne - the soft colours are perfection and I love the main focal point of the flowers and butterfly - so delicate and elegant. Good luck with the DT call - your cards are always beautiful.
