Lily Pad Cards Color Challenge!

Hey everyone!

I've got a card to share today for the new, "Kathy's Lily Pad Palette" challenge at Lily Pad Cards.


We're sponsored this month by Bugaboo Stamps!

Two of the three colors (pink and green) happen to be my favorites, so I couldn't wait to play! Just add a bit of red, and this is what ya get.


This pretty, Bugaboo, digital image reminds me of pansies, which I love! It comes with the sentiment too! I printed it off, then immediately added some clear embossing powder before the ink dried, and embossed it. I then colored the image with Copic markers. I added a few, small, red, heart gems, cut around the image, and adhered it to an embossed, white panel. To add a bit more red, I used Penny Black's, Mix and Match paper for the card base.

So, head on over to the Lily Pad Cards blog to read all the details, check out the fabulous cards from the other DT members, and join in the challenge! I would love to see what you create with this pretty color combo!

Thanks for stopping by! Hope everyone has a great weekend! :)

You Know Barb, I love how you are making your cards these days, everyone has a quality that is classic and endearing, this design has captured the colour Palette beautifully, without having to rely on a cornucopia of embellishments.
The little hearts falling from the word 'Love' is just perfectly done,
and by adding the green ribbon it connects to the flowers and creates a flow.
Just Gorgeous.
Smiles:)
