Brown and Pink

Hi everyone.  Today's card is for The Flower Challenge #48 - Brown & Pink.  I love this colour combination!


The challenge is sponsored by Bugaboo Digital Stamps and I have several of their really fun images.  I printed off these sweet heart-shaped flowers in a pot (Flower pot #4) and watercoloured with distress inks.  I added a frame (Simple Stackers 51-613) and a sweet little sentiment (Happy Messages).

To finish, I sponged brown ink around the outside of the frame and added some clear Wink of Stella to the flowers and ribbon.  You can see the shimmer in the close-up photo below.

Close-up ...
I hope you'll come play along with this fun challenge.  Check out the amazing cards made by the Designers and their Guest Designer, Lee Ann.  You'll be inspired to join in!

This is adorable, Loll! I'm a Bugaboo fan; can't help myself. Pretty little pot of heart blooms. It looks great with your watercoloring and that cute sentiment in matching ink.

I love the sketchy look of this cute image, the sparkle on the flowering hearts and the bow is divine.
The frame just compliments this sweet flower pot beautifully.
