To make the girls wink...

Brace yourself, lol!  This one's a bit mad - a wham, bam, thank you ma'am type card, but as the colour challenge was hot pink, grey and cream, I thought I'd go the whole hog with it. This one is a bit different to my usual style and colour, more like the colours I went for a while back. It will be going in these challenges:

Cr84fn Colour Challenge hot pink, grey and cream
Card Patterns sketch
and another one for Papertake Weekly 'punches/dies'

And yes, the paper cigars are back! I did an Easter card with these on, and loved them :) As for the paper flowers, they started off pale pink, and after I'd coloured them in with a Pro Marker, they were anything but pale! For the border I cut a card strip, which I wrapped raffia around which gives some texture. I added some paper spirals on the flower on the sentiment to make it go 'pop'! The grey backing paper, sentiment and cake stand digi stamp are all Pink Petticoat.

Flowers, Wild Orchid Crafts
Border punch, Martha Stewart 'Doily Lace'
Bazzill Swiss Dot pink (not sure of the colour name)
Pink Petticoat sentiment and grey paper
Nellies Doily die
Pro Markers
