Pinks and Browns

You know when you have a colour layout in your head but you never can quite find the shade you are looking for? well this happened to me months ago so I laid the image to one side and every now and again i would pick it up and try to match it again and end up laying it right back down and using another image.

I picked up a paper pack at Harrogate on the The Hobby House stand and I knew instantly that it would be perfect for this image.

I used pearls from Mei Flower to accent the card, their pearls are second to none and the range is amazing as well as their prices. the flowers are made from the brown paper and the larger one with my Tonic Studios pinking shears.

I used one of the spellbinders frame dies to cut out the image and finished with a pretty bow.

Very clever of you to use pinking shears to do the flowers. I bet that would also work well for the leaves, I'll have to try that. Thanks for the inspiration, Jak.
