Less is More and Pink!

Oh dear there is a colour challenge at LIM this week and, as you can see, it involves PINK! I have to admit that I don’t like pink – and I like working with it even less. However this is a challenge site and it was very definitely a challenge for me this morning. I have come up with two cards and in all honesty I don’t like either of them but am posting them just to show you I tried :0)

What do you think?

For this card I used the butterfly stamp from the SAB set, Bloomin’ Marvelous, and stamped in graduated colours using Rose Red (stamped off first to give a shade of pink), Melon Mambo and Pretty in Pink onto Whisper White cardstock. I added some paper piercing under the butterflies using the Essentials Paper Piercing pack (another SAB freebie) and this was matted onto Naturals White cardstock which also had two rows of paper piercing. A piece of Pretty in Pink Taffeta ribbon was placed over the join before layering onto a Crumb Cake card blank. A few gems and part of a sentiment from A Word for You were added to finish the card.
My second card uses Create a Cupcake stamp set and co-ordinating punch. The frosting was stamped in Pink Pirouette onto Very Vanilla cardstock and the cake case was punched from Pretty in Pink DSP. The sprinkles and bow were stamped in Melon Mambo as was the sentiment from Bring on the Cake. This was matted onto Crumb Cake and then onto a Naturals Ivory card blank before adding two tiny butterflies, cut with the Beautiful Wings Embosslits die.
Please feel free to criticise – I promise I won’t be upset :(0
Come back tomorrow for another Simples Sunday card but, until then, have a great weekend x
