COLOR HUES # 23 ~ YELLOW & PINK

Hi friends, today I am playing along with Color Hues # 23 and couldn't resist using a Pinkfresh stamp and stencil set called Floral Bunch.  Stencils are such an easy way to color!


I had to make a card for a "young" lady turning 80 from my church, so I decided to make it using these awesome colors together.  I kept the leaves a neutral gray and I think it turned out great, it doesn't distract from the pretty yellow and pink flowers.  The sentiment and numbers are from The Greetery.

I also embossed the Delightful Digits (also from The Greetery) background die for a little more interest.  And because I didn't want to cover up the pretty bouquet, I used vellum and embossed with silver EP.

Please go check out all the fabulous inspiration from the design team.  These colors are really fabulous together!



Heart Hugs, friends!
