A Little too much pink?

Happy Thursday,

Opening Night tonight so still AWOL I'm afraid!

Today's offering is a strange combination that, to be honest, I'm not sure I like!  Whilst I love the backing paper and it is blue and pink I'm not sure whether the colours match correctly.  Let me know what you think?!?

The backing paper is First Edition Floral Pavilion with a mixture of spellbinders die cuts in blue, pink and cream.

Spellbinders Gold Circles one

Pink & Cream PMD Smooth Card
Whimsey Stamps sentiment stamp

  1. Morning John,

    This is fabulous, love it, the design, papers, dies etc. It all matches perfectly so stop worrying lol! Very pretty papers you have put with some very wonderful dies.

    Good luck with the show tonight.

    Love & Hugs

  4. Hi John,
    The colours are fine, for me the large pink die cut is perhaps a bit overpowering, maybe I would have left it off. Mind you in real like I might think differently. Don't always get a true idea from photos.
    Hope you show goes well.

  5. Sorry John
    That should say in real life.

  6. I agree with Lydia The colours are gorgeous but O too think the big pink die cut is too much and wouldn't have bothered with it at all

  7. Hi John. Love the paper and colours but like some others I think that the pink die is too big, otherwise it is gorgeous. Break a leg : ) Take care.

  8. You can never have enough pink! But I think the oval die is a bit heavy too.
    Break a leg tonight, and have fun!

  9. Hola John
    Beautiful. I love that FE pad too (along with all the others lol!). Maybe a leeeeetle bit too much of the pink die cuts on display but not a deal breaker.
    Have fun tonight and enjoy the roar of the greasepaint and the smell of the crowd! (Or is it it the other way round hahaha!)
    Buena suerte mi amigo!

  10. Hi John,

    Love Sheila xx

  11. Hi John, Lovely card as usual, I love it.

    Break a leg.


  12. Hi John,

  13. Hi John, I like the card, the colours are good together, the backing paper is pretty. I just don't particularly like the spellbinders shape. Not soft enough, looks at bit spikey. Only my opinion though, most of the comments before me like it. Janice x

  14. John, think I must join the rest of your fans who think the large pink background medallion is too heavy in feel for the rest of that lovely, dainty card. Isn't it funny how, when you complete a seemingly coordinated project, some elusive element niggles at you and leaves you unsettled? Happens to all of us at some point.
    Break A Leg tonight and enjoy the experience!

  15. Hi there John, hope all is going well this evening. The paper is lovely but personally I don't like the pink die cut and would have left it out, best wishes Jackie

  16. good luck tonight ,love the background paper so dainty .while the pink matches maybe there is a little too much of it in this die cut shape ,Laura O
