Bright Pink Relief!?!

Happy Friday,

Another one from the archives or spares I'm sorry to say today however I do love the colour, brightness and simplicity of this card so don't know why it was in the spares folder lol.

The issue I have been having with my PC and technology appears to be too much traffic on the home network which is not helped by the OH's love of technology.  I have been having issues getting new pictures to load and posts to save onto the net however I think by later today this will be resolved.

I have been playing with my new dies so I have some different things to show and cant wait to post these!

Back to today a card made in 14 x 14cm handcut card blank in pink.  I have added a piece of shocking pink embossed with a random dots folder matted in white to highlight the main image.

The main front piece was made by die cutting one of the flower dies that comes with the spellbinders square bracket edged box die. I did however ink the die first with a matching pink dew drop ink and then cut four flowers from the same piece of card lining them up to create the back piece.  The Flowers, with a pearl added for the centre of course, are then foam mounted over the piece they were cut from.

Hopefully a simple card with a look of complexity that would brighten up anyones day!
