Photo Inspiration - Pink and Green

A sunny Good Morning to you all,

Well, after a deluge of rain on Tuesday, we have had some sunny weather here in Yorkshire - I must get out and tidy up the garden a bit, but instead I craft! Lol.

I have a card today for the 'Stampin' for the Weekend' challenge - which is a photo inspiration challenge.  I love these and they are quickly becoming a favourite, and what's more the colour scheme is also one of my favourites - predominantly 'Pinks and Greens' - how could I refuse!  Here is a copy of the photo, isn't it gorgeous ...

And here's my card that I made to enter ...

I have tried to pick up the olive green, salmon pink and the gorgeous ditsy print from the bedding in the photo and echo these in my choice of papers which are from one of my many 'First Edition' paper stacks (I am addicted to them!)  

The image is LOTV and is called 'Blossom', which I also thought fit the theme of the card - she is coloured with my Promarkers in a selection of colours to match the backing papers and the kraft card.  I inked the edges with 'Peeled Paint' distress ink and also stitched around the edge of the image in pink to echo the fabrics in the photo.

The sentiment is a recent purchase, also from LOTV and I just love it - it has a little friendship recipe on it.  The edges are also inked with Peeled Paint distress ink.

The flowers are WOC and again the cherry blossoms are in keeping with my theme.  I added some die cut leaves too.

Further embellishments include some gorgeous olive green polka dot organza ribbon and a bow, a little key charm, a TH 'wish' ticket, some adhesive gems (of course) and finally a pink heart to echo the little hanging heart on the cupboard drawer in the photo.

I would also like to enter this card into the 'Wild Orchid Challenge' which is also 'Pink and Green' this week.

Have a fab day,
Hugz, Jan xx
