Sophisticat Challenge

It's Monday morning and so that means another challenge over at Sophisticats, we had some fab entries again last week, so thank you to everyone who took part. This week we're welcoming a new DT member Avril Ann, who has very bravely hosted this week's challenge, oh yes we threw her right in at the deep end!! So the challenge is to use Pink & Brown on your card plus flowers, of course it doesn't have to be a card, can be anything you like as long as you stick to the theme.

For my card I've used Stampin' Up! all the way (oops except for the sentiment) and my stamp is from the Level 2 Hostess set called Whimsical Wings, I wasn't sure about this set to begin with but I've seen some beautiful cards made with it and I really do like it now - to get this set you need to host a party or place a qualifying order, if you want to know more then just email me.

Stamp - Whimsical Wings
Ink - Chocolate Chip; Pink Passion
DSPs - Sweet Always
Cardstock - Chocolate Chip

Non SU:
Sentiment - printed from a Xyron Design runner (new toy! and see how I've managed to place it nice and wonky!!)
Brad - from stash

Hope you can join in the fun this week, there's a lovely prize up for grabs too!

Jan, I really like the color combination and you did such a wonderful job putting your card together. So creative with the flower stamp one color and then made it pop as a die-cut stamped in pink! And the bird - how cute is he. Did you stamp the background paper too because it is just adorable. You're really creative and what a great way to market your business to show others how creative they can be with SU stamps; and the lovely hostess stamp. Oh nice to include other SU blogs (I just noticed that on your side bar). YOU rule! You take time to comment and encourage others and I really appreciate that. Thank you so much.
