Softly Pink to End the Week...

Happy Saturday, everyone...I hope your weekend holds the promise of lots of fun and time for rest, too! 

I'm ending the week with pics of a card made in very soft, almost monochromatic, tones of pink, mauve, and cream.  I used the embellishments to add contrast to those soft shades.  The centerpiece of this card is a digi collage from Janet at Digital Papers on Etsy (this set is called "Spring in Paris.")

The pink flower is made up of diecut felt hearts...the paper leaves are die cut and inked...

I colored the insets of this lace (after tea-dying it) using an EK Success water pen and some Distress Inks (Tattered Rose and Forest Moss). Under indoor lighting, the centers are pink, and the outsides dark the photos, they look much lighter with the indirect sunlight reflecting directly off them.

Patterned papers: Glitz French Kiss collection (text paper); Pink Paislee Butterfly Gardens/Botanical Gardens (pink)
Digi collage:  Digital Papers on     Lace: The Funkie Junkie on
Pearls: Recollections      Paper rose: Prima     Edge Punch: Fiskars/Lace Border      Heart die: Papertrey Ink
Paper leaves: Spellbinders Orchard Harvest Tags & Accents die      Hug Snug seam binding

Thanks for stopping by...have a wonderful weekend!
