Color Hues #6 - PINK & BROWN

Hello friends.  I'm playing along with the Color Hues Challenge where this time around they're looking for cards with PINK & BROWN.


I've been on such a Christmas kick lately that I've seriously neglected my birthday card stash, so I combined Winter and my favorite bear from Sugar Pea Designs (Hey Winter) to come up with this birthday card...


I started by stenciling my background using Sugar Pea's Geo Snowflake Stencil and Picked Raspberry Distress Ink, and then adhered it to a Soft Suede panel and a white card base.  I also stamped the bear, her hat, and the gifts in Soft Suede ink and then stamped again in Versamark and embossed with clear embossing powder before water coloring my images.  


 I die cut the images and then added them to a tag (Gina K) that I sponged Soft Suede ink to.  The hat (that is my favorite image in this set!!) and the present that she is holding are both pop dotted, and the sentiment strip too.  A little bit of ribbon and some clear gems finished off my PINK & BROWN birthday card!

You can check out all the FABULOUS inspiration from the DT in PINK & BROWN right HERE to play along.

Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!

  2. Before I tell you how much I like your card, and I do!, I want to invite you, once the pandemic is over, to jump across the lake so we can go to Gina K's store and have a little fun! She's only about 45 minutes away from my house....oh the fun we'd have!! And your pretty bright pink birthday card is darling! That stenciled background is gorgeous and so much fun. I can see why you love that bear, too. Absolutely adorable! Stay safe. xo Bev
