Colour Me #30


Happy Saturday....I have one card to share today, it is for the current challenge over at Colour Me...! At first I really struggled with the colors, I have lots of rejects in my recycle bin to prove it. So after spending some time thinking about how to make the colors work I came up with this. I love these butterfly dies from PTI and thought they might look nice layered. I was having trouble finding something gold to add to my card and found these Kaiser pearls floating around, I love the way they look. Thank you so much for taking time to stop by...enjoy the rest of your weekend.



Ingredients
Solid Card Stock: Michael's - White and PTI - Lemon Tart, Black and Hibiscus Burst
Patterned Paper: Lawn Fawn - Pink Lemonade
Dies: PTI - Life is Beautiful and Wet Paint and Lil Inkers - Polaroid
Pearls: kaiser

  7. I think I'd struggle with this color scheme too, not the yellow but the pink in combination with yellow. But wow what a beautiful color scheme! Perfect for a summery feel! It was well worth your efforts:)
