Pink Carnation, Orange Sherbet and Lemonade

Couldn't resist playing with the colors at the Play Date Cafe challenge this week; summer to the max!


I thought I'd make a little bouquet of posies, with the help of some masking:

PDCC Aug 9

supplies: white card stock, dp from doodlebug designs "hello spring", Hero Arts CL511 Sweet Threads Thank You, bubble gum and butter bar mid-tone inks, Adirondack Sunset Orange ink, peeled paint and shabby shutters distress inks, Nesties Labels Eighteen, Martha Stewart butterfly punch, orange ribbon, tiny green button

I'm also entering this into A Blog Named Hero's Freestyle challenge.
