Sending Flowery Love

***This is my second post today.  for my ColourQ/Inkspirational post please scroll dow on click here!***


Hello again!  Yes, a second post from me today as I'm trying to make the deadline for the Colour Throwdown. Another tricky colour combo -  pink and orange always trip me up when they're put together!  I used the sketch from RetroSketches to get my brain moving and went very literal with it.  I ended up pulling out some old Woodware Craft Collection Daisy punches - some of the first I ever bought!  I layered them and then punched circles for the centers.  Simple but effective!


Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (Melon Mambo, Pumpkin Pie, Pretty in Pink, Crumb Cake) Stampin' Up
Stamp:  (Sentiment from Grand Greetings) Lawn Fawn
Inks:  (VersaMark) Tsukineko
Embossing Powder:  (Seafoam White) Ranger
Punches:  (2" & 1 1/2" Daisy) Woodware Craft Collection, (1/2" circle) Marvy Uchida, (1/4" & 5/16" hole punches) McGill
Other:  Glossy Accents

Not just pink and orange -- TWO pinks and orange! You totally made it work, though.

I LOVE the fonts for the sentiment! And white EP - you brave thing! I still think of you every single time I use mine :) I share your orange/pink problem - I can only put them together by accident, feels like.
