Pink, Kraft, Off-White, and Soft Black....

Makes a lovely color combo wouldn't you say???  It is in FACT, this week's beautiful color combination over at Color Combos Galore - Palette #157.



Here is my take on the colors:


I just picked up these frames made by Tattered Angels, they come with letters, the negative of letters, and all these ticket like frames.  LOVE them!  Inside the frame is a stamp by UNITY Stamp Co. as are the flower stamps (Insightful Meadows by Donna Downey).


Here is a close up of the flowers (a nice backdrop to my pictures), I stamped them in brown and pink ink, then applied some stickles to make them SPARKLE.  The "SNAPSHOTS" is die cut from the Silhouette.  I just have to ask why I resisted so long in buying a machine that could do almost anything you want!


And because I love BUMPY layouts, I decided to twirl my ribbon for fun!  Staples work magic when applying ribbon (but then you can see the metal).  I don't mind though.  Adds character!


The designer's challenge this week was to use metal.  I chose to work with metal corners that I picked up at Lee Valley years ago, staples, and brads.  This challenge is happening RIGHT NOW - so go check it out at Color COMBOS Galore!

Lesley, this layout is beautiful! And thanks for the added incentive to buy a Silhouette...I've been putting it off for about a year, but I know it's the one I want.

Wow! Your work is so magical! Gorgeous!!!! (I've had that quote stamp for a little while now and always wondered what to do with it. It's very 'deep' for me. LOL!)
