Color Hues #26 - PURPLE & PINK

Hello friends.  Playing along with the Color Hues Challenge today where they are looking for PURPLE and PINK on our cards.


I used an older Pinkfresh Studios die set called Floral Squares and came up with this CAS card...


I started by blending Passionate Pink and Wild Wisteria inks (Gina K) onto a piece of white cardstock and then used the Floral Squares dies to cut out the images, and then die cut again using just white cardstock.  This allowed me to use the ink blended pieces for the background of the squares, and the solid white for the outline images.  


I used SU!'s Subtle embossing folder for my background layer that I attached to a top folding white card base, and then added the die cut squares...the middle square has a piece of fun foam behind it to add a little dimension.  I stamped my sentiment (SSS - Tiny Words) onto the side of the bottom pink square, and then finished by adding a few PFS pink & purple gems.  Pretty CAS, but I love how it turned out!!

Check out all the FABULOUS cards from the DT and then play along right HERE.  This challenge is open till September 29th

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