Our Creative Corner Challenge

Seeing as I love blue shades, I thought it fun to join in the Our Creative Corner challenge this week called Not too Big on Pink. We had to use blue with just a touch of pink, incorporate some texture and a metal piece! For my texture I have used lace with taffeta ribbon threaded through and my metal pieces are the teeny weeny blue brads in the middle of the teeny weeny pink flowers!

The bird from SU Elements of Style is stamped in Marina Mist and I used a Night of Navy marker to colour his head and around his edges. The tiny flowers were punched with a baby punch I have had for many years - so cute.

Oh my ... your card is gorgeous Jean ... I love the tiny wee flowers and super sweet brads, these subtle additions add such elegance and delicacy to the fabulous lace/ribbon treatment. Simply beautiful ...
Thank you for joining us this week at Our Creative Corner!!!
