....and a splash of Hot Pink

If you're here to see my card from Lily Pad Cards today, please scroll down one post - thanks!

I have come to love and look forward to the Play Date Cafe's Splash challenges, to use black and white with a splash of another color.  This week we get to choose our splash.  I chose hot pink.  And since this uses lots of flowers, I'm also entering it into the Moxie Fab World Botanical challenge.  Here's my card:


supplies: white, black, and hot pink card stock, Hero Arts CL479 Dictionary Greetings, CL490 Sending Smiles Messages, versamark ink and white embossing powder, E3346 Zinnia Bloom, versafine onyx black ink, black button, white thread, pop dot


I stamped the zinnia bloom repeatedly on the card and twice on the pink card stock, cutting them out and popping 1 above the other, adding a black button to the center.
