Pretty in Pink

 
 
 
Hi and Good Morning :)
 
Our new challenge over at Cheery Lynn Designs this week is 'Tickled Pink', and it was lovely to play with some light floral colours and shapes, especially in January! lol.  The lucky winner will receive a $20 voucher to spend online in the Cheery Lynn Store, so a fab prize too!
 
I used a 6 x 6 blank card base and layered First Edition papers onto 300gsm ice white pearl card.  This cardstock was also used for the doily, border and corner die cuts,  and it gives a brilliant clean cut, even on the most intricate dies.  The 2 corner dies are from the  Lace Corner Deco I  set, and the beautiful border at the bottom is the Border Carnivale Die trimmed with some spotty pink ribbon and a bow.
 
I then matted an adorable Mo Manning image onto the gorgeous Sunflower Doily die.  This is a fabulous size, as it fills a 6 x 6 card pefectly, but still gives you lots of room to add other embellishments.   The large flowers use both sizes of the Judy's bloom dies held together with pearl brads.  The smaller flowers are Darling Daisies, and the leaves are a mix of Pine Branches and Olive Branches
 
All dies used on this card are:
 
 
 
I hope you find time to enter this week, we love seeing your Cheery Lynn Creations! :)  Dont forget there is always fresh daily inspiration from the rest of the talented DT over on our Cheery Lynn Designs Inspiration Blog
 
I am entering this card in the below competitions:
 
Die-ing for a Challenge - Anything Goes
Bunny Zoes Crafts - Anything Goes
Crafts & Me - Favourite embellishment - Pearls
Totally Gorjuss - Flowers
 
 
I hope everyone has a smashing week and thanks so much for visiting today.

Lovely shades of pink you used & beautifully matched with your colouring. The use of the green to contrast & the whilte is terrific. Gorgeous soft colouring of the apron - I know what you mean, I'm such a tentative colourer & long to be more proficient. Have kept thinking about what you said & will keep in mind as I'm eager to work with my Distress Markers & hope to gather the reinkers gradually.

Debbie said...

OMG Alison this card is stunning. I love the image (love Mo's images), but oh those die cuts are just so gorgeous.
I bought a lovely doily die last week by X cut and although it is nice, (not a patch on this one of yours) It is a NIGHTMARE to get all the bits out even with greasproof paper, so frustrating. Gorgeous Card.

Hi Alison, I just love your card. It is everything a delicate white and pink card should be. I just love to see what you create. I have to admit however that every time I see one of your pieces of artwork/cards I have to remind myself that even though I am no way even close to being as talented as you are that I still have fun making my cards. After all, all my friends that want to buy my cards don't know that there are far more talented people like you out there. lol... Seriously, you are so gifted and I truly love seeing all that you do with the dies and your coloring. Maybe one day with a ton of practice I will come close to being this good. In the mean time I want you to know that I truly love your cards and checking out just how gorgeous each and everyone of them is. thanks for sharing your talents with us all. Hugs, Lisa G

Hi Alison!
I am a new follower of your blog.
This card is adorable and so is your colouring. The layout is gorgeous. I love the combination of dies and the flowers look lovely. I had such a nice time going through your beautiful creations and noticed you had a few Magnolia stamps. I love Tilda.
Do you use Promarkers as your main medium?
