Leah's Monthly Challenge #5

I found Leah's challenge this month exactly that - a challenge! I really wasn't sure about how to combine the colours from her inspiration until late last night....

I thought I could use the colours Leah pulled of Pink Passion, Pixie Pink, Pumpkin Pie, Wild Wasabi, Soft Sky, Basic Black and Whisper White to make a card for a special little friend's birthday that is coming up in April (I'm trying to be organised).

However, I failed to check my diary until AFTER I made this, and she is actually turning 8... oops. Glad I found out now and not after I'd given it to her!

I shadow rolled Flitting By with Pixie Pink and Pink Passion (this is what happens when you shadow roll after 11pm...) and mounted this on Soft Sky card scalloped using the scallop edge punch. I punched a scallop circle from Soft Sky, which had Pink Passion and Whisper White mounted on it. The '7' is from Best Friends Numbers, stamped in Pumpkin Pie and shadowed with the Basic Black journalling marker, which was also used for the dots in the scallops. A row of piercing finished the panel, which had been mounted on a Wild Wasabi card base, and I added a few Pumpkin Pie felt flowers from Flower Fusion in the current Summer Mini, with silver brads or Pixie Pink eyelets (retired) for the centres.

Not too bad for being completely stumped until late last night (but not brilliant); I might see what else I can come up with....

Your shadow rolling is great. It is so hard to get it close. Love the card too. You could always punch another circle for the 8.
