Double D - Shades of PINK


  Hello Dear Friends!

It's time once again for a new challenge over on the Double D Challenge Blog!
I'm happy to say I am hosting today's challenge and our theme is:
 Shades of PINK
and here's an inspiration board I've created to help get you started . . .


 As you can see, I was inspired by the ombre shades of pink and the cupcake.

I've used 3 shades of TH oxide distress pink inks to create my background panel and I've also used the darkest shade to add highlights to my words.

 Dies used are:

Elizabeth Craft 'Cupcales' (#1144)

Penny Black 'Celebrations' (#51-028)  - used the Birthday portion of the die.

Memory Box 'Jumbled Happy Birthday' (#1472) - used the Happy portion of the die set.



Here's a closeup of the cupcake sparkle:

 I hope you've found inspiration from today's creation!  
The prize that you'll be playing for this time around is:

 Remember, it's a random draw for the winner so it could be YOU!!

Hope to see you at Double D! 

  As always . . .
