Not my usual colours ...



But I like it. 1 card 3 challenges. And here they are:
Creative Belli Blog which was to do some dry embossing, so I got my trusty CB out and it's Swiss dot folder and away we went.

Colour Create is Pink, Black and White this week. Not my usual colours but thought I'd have a bash.

Cupcake Craft Challenge is this wonderful sketch.

All the card and ribbon is from my stash and the images are by Great Impressions.

I used 2 different pink inks for the background and then stamped the images with a raspberry colour. I then covered each one with Versa and emboss them with holographic powder.The black card was put through my CB and then inked with white.
Thank you for looking, hope you like it.
Love Karen xxx
