Pink and Blue at Elphine House

Don't know what's wrong me but I keep hitting the wrong darn button and the post goes live before I'm ready.  Sorry!!

Challenge #2 at Elphine House and what a fun one it is and so easy peasy, Pink and Blue. There are so many different shades of each available for your own interpretation of pink/blue.  Only requirement to play along is that you must use an Elisabeth Bell image to qualify for the prize.  As long is it is drawn by Elisabeth it works for the challenge and you all know how much I love Elisabeth's images. One of my favorite NEW challenge blogs.

I'm trying to develop a style that I love with my own interpretation of that style, and boy, I'm finding it a little challenging, but I'll get there sooner or later. Think maybe a class on flower arranging and embellishing would work?? LOL

I'm also entering this card in the following challenges:
Wild Orchid Crafts - Beary Special
Stamptacular Sunday - Friends are Heaven Sent!
Anything Goes - (Metal Optional)

Onto the card deets and then I'm outta here until Monday except for getting around to visiting everyone for a little inspiration this weekend and to see all the wonderful, new creations by you, and then just to say "HI".  Things have been wild around here so I haven't gotten around as much I'd have liked lately but you'll see me this weekend for sure.
  • Elisabeth Bell Digital Pati's Kisses  Image colored with Copics - I love this one!
  • Older Sketch #41 from Sketch & Stash
  • Cheery Lynn Italian Die
  • MS Butterfly punch & Bough punch
  • Stickles and Viva Decor Pearl Pen
  • Flowers and lace from WOC, such beautiful flowers and lace
Thanks so very much for stopping by and if you have the time to leave me a comment you"ll be the first stop on my list for a visit.  Have a wonderful, fun, and amazing weekend!

Very pretty! Love the colors, embellies and your coloring of that sweet EB image!

Patti P. said...

I don't think you need a bit of help in flower and embellie arranging, in fact you could teach the class. Love this EB image and her faded jeans. So pretty, tfs and hope your weekend is wonderful. It's been crazy here also, but will try and email soon.

Hi Carol - I hope all is well with you and yours. I love this card - the blue and pink work perfectly together, and I think you have already got your own "style" of working, which is absolutely wonderful.
Love and hugs, Sylvia xxx
