Pretty in Pink (& grey & black) with ColourQ

Yet another fantastic color combination from Arielle at ColourQ!  This time around she found inspiration in these amazing handmade fabric flowers from Japan, Tsumami Kanzahi.  The flower Arielle chose contains two shades of pink, black & gray and is absolutely gorgeous as you can see from the photo.  I was really excited to see this combo, but as per usual.... got stumped.  I made a card last night that I was not happy with and so gave it another try this morning using the current sketch from Clean & Simple (FTL99). 

Pulled out an older Hero Arts set called Flower Blossom Border for the main image.  The card is 6.5" x 6.5" in order to accomodate the floral image I chose to use.  A couple of SU! punches (Modern Labels & Scallop Trim border) were used as well. 

Thanks for taking a peek and I hope you have a wonderful day.  Today is a happy day.... I got my new JustRite Stamps & Stamper in the mail!!  Yipeee!! 

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI - white; SU! Pretty in Pink, Passion Pink, Basic Grey & Basic Black; Ink:  Close to my Heart Grey Wool & Black, Memento Rosebud; Stamps:  Hero Arts Flower Blossom Borders; Punches:  SU! Modern Labels & Scallop Trim border
