.... I really struggled with this week's challenge over at Colour Q - shades of pink!! The colours are really pretty but I don't have SU card or ink, so it's been tough matching the colours. I think I've managed reasonably well.
I really like the inspiration photo - and that's pretty much how I decided what to do for my card. I went to my trusty Pink Petticoat DVDs and found this sweet pot full of roses, which I've coloured with Promarkers. The backing paper is also by Pink Petticoat.
I wasn't sure how to incorporate kraft into the card, then I realised it would make a great backing matte, so cut out the largest of the beaded circles - it has a subtle sparkle as I sprayed on silver Spray and Sparkle. Next I cut a pale pink vellum layer, onto which I placed the coloured image. It's placed slightly to the top of the circle as I wanted to add some flowers at the bottom.
Edited - I've just realised that the big flower looks black and white in the picture - sorry it's the scan, it's actually a very pale pink and silver!!

It's been a busy morning - out to the shops getting last minute bits and pieces for Jonathan to take to India. I happened to stop at my local craft shop too - only to look mind you - but I came out with a small bag of goodies!! I got some lovely backing papers - more masculine shades, which is good, as I don't have many!!
I do have a couple more cards to show you - check back later this evening!! I'm off to watch QVC as they have a Martha Stewart hour on at 4.00pm - I only looking mind!! :))))
