Summer Silhouettes in the pink


Oh dear, my snowman card yesterday brought on some more snow this morning, so I thought I'd better do some warm flowers!! Hint Hint.......

I've followed two challenges for this card - 

Dynamic Duos - Real Red and Pretty in Pink
I've added Crumb Cake as my neutral. 

Addicted to stamps and more - which has given us a fab sketch to follow -


For my card I decided to stay away from hearts and have a play with one of my favourite stamp sets ever - Summer Sihouettes.  I've used a Crumb Cake base to tone down all that pink.  A Whisper White panel was attached firstly stamping the trellis design with Crumb Cake.  I then cut a square of Whisper White and repeatedly stamped all over with the flower in Pretty in Pink stamped off first.  I stamped the arrangement of flowers in Pretty in Pink and Real Red.  Then sponged the edges with Real Red.  I added a small Basic Pearl to the little flowers and drew in a shadow line with my Crumb Cake Stampin' Write Marker.  The panel was attached with Dimensionals.  I then stamped the flower in Real Red on some scrap Whisper White before cutting out and attaching with a Dimensional.  The larger Basic Pearl finishes off the flower.  The sentiment comes form Perfectly Preserved and I used my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to line it up along the bottom.

I think it looks really sweet and I like the colour combo combined with Crumb Cake. 

My warm flowers are doing the trick!  The snow is off for the time being and doesn't seem to have come to much.  Oh the power of crafting.  Hee Hee.
