sweet life...

Hello friends!!  Popping in with a card that I made using the current ColourQ combo.  The colors are perfect for a valentine, but that's not what I made, lol!  The layout is based on the current Sketchbook Saturday sketch.  ETA:  Going to pop this into the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge...twine or string

 
I pulled out my PTI Sweet Life stamps and dies and did some multi step stamping.  Initially I wasn't sure that I liked the stark contrast between the lighter pinks and the dark Primrose Petals ink, but now I really do.  I tried my hand at creating a little twine/thread nest (or in my case mess, lol!), but not sure that I will do it again any time soon.   One other thing I do like is the way the leaves turned out.  After die cutting them I stamped them with Pink Pirouette ink and added the veins with kraft... I love the way it looks.   As this is a very girly card I had to add a few sequins.

Thanks for stopping by...
