Pink Pirouette Poppy

Firstly, I need to say thank you very much to Stacey for choosing this card that I submitted for last weeks Jewellery Colour Inspiration Challenge as the winner! It was such a buzz to get your e-mail. Thank you!!

Now this weeks challenge was a bit of a tough one for me. Remember how I feel about orange? Well, yellow isn't too far behind that, and just to add a bit more spice to the colour choice, Stacey picked Kiwi Kiss and Pink Pirouette as the coordinating colours from this picture:

I love Pink Pirouette and Kiwi Kiss together, and I'm quite happy to work with Yoyo Yellow with other bright colours, but together? After a bit of pondering and trying to get this colour combo to work with Heartfelt Thanks (without having markers) to no satisfaction, this is what eventuated:

Not too bad in the end! Silver was just perfect to link in with the bracelet too. I was working with this in landscape until I thought I'd finished and then placed it upright just to see what it would look like, and it looked better and I could find the right spot to add a sentiment then too! I think the flower in this ended up looking a bit like a poppy. I'll have to remember this for when I finally scrap some ANZAC Day and Rememberence Day photos. I stamped two of the large flowers from Eastern Blooms and layered them on top of each other. I've just lifted the petals of the top flower up a bit for a bit of dimension and added some Dazzling Diamonds for sparkle.

Luana moved up rooms at child care a few weeks ago (a bit quicker then expected, so I didn't have anything prepared for her main carer) so this will be heading into child care with her on Monday for Jess to say thank you for taking such good care of my precious girl.

Thanks too Stacey for really pushing me out of my comfort zone this week!!
