Pink Lily and a Color Challenge

This card is my sample for the color challenge I just posted on stampTV. The challenge is to use pink and any neutral colors. A random winner will be chosen next week to win the stamp set of their choice valued at $19.95 or less. I hope you will all play along. I used the sketch from Kurtis' sketch challenge on my card.

I used the lily from Elegant Flowers, a set out of my Floral Frenzy stampTV Kit. The image is colored with Copic markers. I used my Friskars Threading Water punch on the top layers. The background layer is sponged. I also stamped some leafs from Tropical Flowers on that layer. The pink ribbon is also from the kit. I really love all the ribbons Gina included in the kit. They are so luxurious.

The corner punched paper is from my new EK Success slimline punch that I got from Michaels a few days ago. The design of these new punches is pretty cool and they cut well.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a great day!

Wonderful Theresa. Like Melanie I love the pink to brown fade. I love dark brown with most pastel or bright colours and the sketch you used is great too.

Not that I don't like each and every one of your creations, but this one is down right gorgeous. I love how you graduated the pink to brown for the background.

Super! Once again you proved that you are the master of sponging.

Congratulations on being all over blog land yesterday :-)
