Golds and pinks

Hi Everyone,

I hope that you're having some of that lovely summery weather that we're having in Ireland now, too! Truth be told, it's very humid also, and you can almost feel the high water contents in the air, but I won't complain - a bit of sun is always welcome in these parts of the world!

Maybe it's the sunshine & summer, or maybe it's something else, but I am loving the pink/purple and gold combo recently! I have been buying a few household items in this colour combo recently, and so I was not surprised at all when an idea of a card with these colours appeared in my head the other day! 

You know me - I usually go rather simple, and rather flat (for postage reasons, boohoo, how I wish I could go wild & 3D more often!!)... But I am really happy with the result. A bit of Versamark (sorry, the Versamark flowers are not very visible in the photos), a bit of heat-embossing... Some glitter & a ribbon and voila! A bday card for a Lady is ready!

The card is also my DT entry over at Divas by Design, where our challenge this week is Favourite Colour Combo with Magnolias. As an exception, I got away with not using a Magnolia product, but please remember that to enter the challenge you will need to!

Without further ado, here's the card:

The stamps are by Papertrey Ink - In Bloom set & I also used the coordinating dies
The Happy Birthday stamp was a freebie with a magazine

I am entering the card into the following challenges:
Inky Impressions: No designer paper
I love Promarkers: Monochrome
Inky Chicks: Happy Birthday
Love to Create: Bright and Sunny

Hope you got a bit inspired. What is your favourite colour combo recently?
