Color Throwdown #48

Today's COLOR THROWDOWN Challenge is hosted by LeAnne Pugliese (Wee Inkings) and she has asked us to use the soft colors of Pink Pirouette, Baja Breeze and Kraft.
Kraft is one color that I use very little of so I don't really own "actual" kraft cardstock but I had something very similar and used it instead. I guess I need to force myself to make a kraft cardstock purchase and use it ... everyone else makes beautiful cards using it ... why can't I??? Back to the card ......
My main image is by Great Impressions and was purchased at Tammy Hershberger's (waiving HI!) store (Toyrifix) a while back and I decided to use it today. I used both SU watercolor pencils & Prismacolor markers for the coloring.
Card recipe:
Stamps: Great Impressions, AMuse
Papers: Pink Pirouette, WW, Baja Breeze, faux Kraft, SU Urban Garden designer paper
Inks: Versafine Black
Accessories: Detail Clear EP, Prismacolor markers, SU watercolor pencils, Nestabilities (oval & scallop oval), Offray grosgrain ribbon, Mark Richards mini pink pearls, SU eyelet border punch
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you find a little inspiration in my card creations. Hope you are having a fun filled day!!
