Colour Create #76 - Pink, Green and White

Its the start of another fortnightly challenge over at Colour Create and this time we have this gorgeous pic for inspiration by Julie below:

28 July - Challenge 76 - Julie - Pink White Green

The colours to use are pink, green and white with an optional extra of cooking. Well I don't have anything along the cooking line, so I just worked with these fabulous colours instead.

I have used my MFT Being Cute Is What I Do stamp in Tuxedo Black ink and then ran the white layer through my Cuttlebug with my Linen impression plate. I then coloured her with Copics and paper pieced her dress. The sentiment from Birthday Balloon Jolinne has been stamped in Old Olive ink and then I have hand stitched some AnnaBelle Stamps pink striped ribbon to create a ruched strip.

The scallop strip was made by using some green polka dot paper and edging it with my Scallop border punch. I attached it behind my main layer with Scor-Tape, leaving a little tape showing, on which I have sprinkled some glitter. I have also added some glitter to her hair and the flower on her shirt. Finally all of this was mounted on some foam dimensional tape and adhered to my white base.

The girls over at Colour Create have created some beautiful cards, so check them out here, have a look at this week's fabulours prize and link up your card at the same time!!
