AYSI172 Tranquil Pink Birthday

Hi peeps!  Yay, it's's been a long week!  I was thrilled when I saw the As You See It color challenge for this week...isn't it pretty?

Some gorgeous colors!  I used the sketch from the Global Design Project:

and here we go:

I really made the DSP work on this card...I used two of the patterns from Fresh Florals, then fussy-cut one of the Tranquil Tide florals from another pattern for the main focal point.  I added a sentiment from Picture Perfect Birthday, some white twine and a few sequins, and I was done.....except that I made this card early one sleepless morning; it was about 2 am, I think, and when I was all finished, I realized I had forgotten the Smoky Slate!!!  So I cut a little banner from Smoky Slate cardstock, distressed it with my bone folder and split the layers so that I had two layers that almost look like suede.  I tucked them behind the flower and called it done!

I really love this color combination and I can't wait to see what everyone creates with it!  I hope you'll play along with us....check out the DT's designs to get some inspiration at As You See It!  

A little snow fun with my nephew's dog Remy...he likes to eat it!

Enjoy your day and be blessed!

Wow, you really DID work the DSP! Love it! Wish they had a die to cut those flowers. I must have missed the AYSI challenge somehow. These colors together are is Cassidy's choice of colors for her winter/spring garb. You truly are a blessing!

Happy Friday, indeed, LeAnne! I may stay in my pjs, in my craft room ALL DAY!
A darling card, from a wonderful palette of inspiration. Not sure why SU called this color Tranquil... looks like an ocean that means business, right?

Gorgeous card, LeAnne! Your fussy cutting is amazing on the beautiful floral piece you added. I would never have thought to do that! Dogs in the snow add some fun!

Love the way you've layered the papers on angles to show just enough of each one and then topped them with those pretty flowers! This is fabulous LeAnne!
