It's What You See

Hello Everyone!!  Today I've been playing with Happy Crabapple by Power Poppy to create a card for today's IC507 challenge at Splitcoast.  I really like this quote by Thoreau, sometimes it seems that we spend so much time looking around but don't really 'see' at all.  I played along with Splitcoaststampers' Inspiration Challenge today and was inspired by the pink/teal colour palette from THIS picture - I really liked the soft teal/blue and white with pops of pink! Soooo pretty!

I've used a base of Baja Breeze and layered with pink and white (pierced) and topped with some Graphic 45 Botanical Tea DP.  Down one side I've added a piece of white punched with the Woodland Branch border punch and topped with more Botanical Tea DP.  Over this I've attached white and pink ribbons.  I've stamped the branch and sentiment from Happy Crabapple in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copics (RV00, RV32, RV34, G40, G43, G46, E21, R00, R02, R05, YG21, E81, E84, E87, B0000, B000, B00).  I've cut it out with Radiant Rectangles die and popped it up on foam tape.  To finish I've added a pink ribbon and a couple of tiny white pearls.

Wow, Kathy, this is gorgeous, and I love the color combination you've used! It's stunning, and the sweet crabapple branch and sentiment (highlighted ever so softly) on the die are gorgeous together! And what a beautiful layout with the border die, matting, and ribbon. And you know I love the piercing! What a great inspiration for the pin you chose!! Stunning, my friend, and you've really inspired me!! Hugs!

Love the color combo, and so pretty with the crabapple sprig! Fabulous design with the image/sentiment oval and the border die cut. I have this same paper and the Radiant Rectangles, but I hardly recognized either one. Amazing how different they can look in different hands. Inspiring and gorgeous, Kathy!
