More Pink

Hi there, we are having a heat wave! In the high 80's and low 90's.  It feels like I am back in So Cal, since the humidity is low too.

After running errands, I had some time to sit down and make a few cards this evening.

This card was inspired by Fusion Card Challenge, Cupcake Inspiration, and Muse and will be entered to all three challenges. I stamped the Avery Elle Floral Bouquet stamps and leaves for alcohol marker (color-it) coloring.  I colored them very simply with two colors each. Afterwards I fussy cut and darkened the edges with a black marker.   I mounted the flowers as doubles for dimension.  The cover-plate is quilted by Lawn Fawn. The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp.


From Fusion I took the sketch, and from Cupcake I loved that front double pink shade, from muse I was inspired by the colors.

I had stamped quite a few flowers and leaves, so I had some left over for this card which will also go to the Cupcake Inspiration Challenge and Muse.  The cover plate and sentiment are both from PTI.

ETA: I was a bit confused that my cards didn't show at the Muse gallery.  Tonight I figured it out. I linked them to Addicted to Stamps and More, on their photo week. I got an honorable mention for the first card. I often have several challenges open when I prepare my blog posts, I must have forgotten to add this one in to my post.

Here is the lovely graphic.
