thinking of you...

Hello friends!!  It is a beautiful day here in the PacNW and a perfect day for an Easter egg hunt!   A beautiful day at the end of March isn't a frequent occurrence in this neck of the woods so I'm pretty darn happy!!   Have a little card I made this morning for the current Less is More and Dynamic Duo challenges.  It is "lucky dip" (same thing as "wild card") week at LIM and the ladies have asked us to use scallops on our cards.   The Dynamic Duo combo is deep pink (I used SU!'s Primrose Petals) and players choice of a second color (I used SU!'s Pear Pizzazz).


I recently purchased the SU! set French Foliage and decided to ink it up for this card.  Before putting the finished card together I spent a little bit of time determining what my color choice would be.  I initially tried SU!'s Always Artichoke, but wasn't extremely happy with the way it looked with Primrose Petals so chose Pear Pizzazz instead... the two colors play off each other much better.  I stamped the script element using the green and then the leaf using the deep pink.  The splotches were inked in the deep pink, stamped off on scrap paper and then layered on the other two images.  The sentiment is from the Hero Arts set Year Round Sentiments and was stamped in black.  I punched the bottom edge using an EK Success border punch. 

Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white; SU! Pear Pizzazz; Stamps:  SU!; Inks:  SU! & Memento; Punch: EK Success

Good Morning Rosie
I have to say that this is a most beautiful card, I know I state this frequently where your designs are concerned, but it is stunningly fresh and airy; not meek or whimsical, just heavenly. Of course the combination would work because they sit opposite on the colour wheel and are compliments.
But if the values in the design are not correct then it could look a mess, as one can observe in Vintage photos occasionally.
I love working with the soft Pinks and Greens to create a Vintage appeal, so naturally seeing a CAS card using the combination is very pleasing to my eye.
Smiles:)
