Pink trees

In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness, all color challenges in October (on SCS) will have the color pink. I think that this is such a great idea and hope that you will all participate in these challenges. The colors for this week were Pink pirouette (or Pretty in pink), basic black and white.

For this card, I sponged the clouds in pink pirouette and then added the pink "grass" (Pretty in pink DP) and stamped the sentiment on top. A then added the trees (the tops of the trees are paper pieced) and birds. The card just wasn't quite finished until I added the pink rhinestones though. I love bling :)

Supplies: Stamps- Branching Out, Here for you (There She Goes). Paper- Black, white, pretty in pink DP. Ink- pretty in pink, pink pirouette, black stazon. Accessories- make up sponge, rhinestones, cloud template, scallop corner punch, white gel pen.

As a child, I often loved to color or paint things in unusual colors. I think some teachers were worried, butt my parents recognized this as a creative gift! So I LOVE your pink trees and your pink sky and pink clouds!!! This card is an absolute treasure!!!!
