Two post Wednesday for me again as it's also the I ♥ PROMARKERS new challenge day.  Our theme this week (#191) is 'Pink Hair' and our sponsor is the fabulous SHERRI BALDY. There will be 3 winners and each will receive 5  Bestie images, as used by the DT.   This is the first time I've ever coloured an image with pink hair, lol but I actually quite enjoyed doing this one.

My papers are Heidi Grace 'Daydream'  I cut the image using one of my nesties, traced around the die and then cut the mat.  It was then inked lightly with milled lavender distress ink.  I also used a Martha Stewart border punch,  Cheery Lynn corner and leaf dies and the lovely leaf and flower swirly die by Memory Box.

Entering into:
CRAFT YOUR PASSION #185 - Think pink.
BESTIES NORWAY #4 - Use a punch.
MAKE IT MONDAY #163 - Anything goes.
SCRIBBLE & SCRAP #3 - Anything goes.
TTCRD - Anything goes.
613 AVENUE CREATE #42 - Anything goes.
OSAAT #186 - Anything goes.

Hi, Lorraine! Oh, boy, I just love the composition of this card. Using the corner die cut, Stick pins and flower grouping on one side provide great contrast to the wonderful single leaf flourish die on the opposite side. It is a nice way to keep the composition balance and prevent heaviness in the design. Great design technique. Love the black accent layers and, of course, your image is colored to perfection! Thanks for leaving this propped against our front door here at 613 Avenue Create!

I'm tickled pink at the concept of a challenge requiring Pink Hair but then, i have spent the past few months resisting my hairdresser, supported by my sister, wanting to colour my hair pink. Mind you, having seen the lovely results you have achieved Lorraine.. perhaps I should reconsider :-) Your card is just so pretty and I love your die cuts and flowers with your beautifully mounted image. Good luck in our challenge this week. Ingrid xx (OSAAT Team)
