A bit of Blush & Cherry- JAI Colour Challenge 91

It's been a while but here I am with a card at last. I have so so many things I have been creating and am dying to show you but at the moment it's a case of what to do first- juggle, juggle, juggle- as I'm sure it is for most of us.

So here is my card that I created for this week's Just Add Ink challenge. When I saw these colours together they were just so lovely that I had to create something. I probably should be making a start on all things Christmassy but when I saw these colours I instantly thought girly, pretty, flowery and so a birthday card was created.

Here are the colours:
And here is my card:

Project Recipe
Stamp sets:   Creative Elements; Well scripted (retired)
Card/Paper:    Blush Blossom; Whisper White
Inks:              Cherry Cobbler; Blush Blossom
Accessories:  Big Shot; Designer Frames embossing folder; Whisper White Taffeta Ribbon; Scallop edge punch; Paper Piercer; Pearls; Sponges.

I haven't played with this Creative Elements stamp set, which we received at Convention this year, nearly as much as I would like because it really is lovely. Absolutely love the Designer Frames embossing folders for the Big Shot too- just add that extra 'something' to a card. These are definitely my sort of colours- so pretty and girly together.

Hope to be back soon with more to share.

Thanks for popping by for a look,

Wow Louise, totally stunning card. Love the use of the embossed frame and the two tone effect on the flower and butterfly. Thanks for playing along at JAI this week.
