Working With Color Combinations

When I get fixated on a particular color combination, I can't get it out of my head.  When I saw the super delicious color inspiration over on Cupcake Inspirations Challenge Blog, I immediately knew that I wanted to play along.  But I didn't know I'd be creating all week with this color template.  LOL  How yummy in this color combo?
I used Crate Paper products again on this card.  I started with a patterned paper that I inked with Tim Holtz Distress Ink.  To that, I added some floral ephemera, some transparent embellishments, a chipboard sentiment (congrats), and sequins with tiny pearl stickers.  I just adore this sweet color combination.
I'm sharing my card in some of the same challenges I entered yesterday since they're the only ones I can find this week (that I am aware of) where they fit the current theme.  I am SUCH a creature of habit.  LOL

Cupcake Inspirations Challenge Blog - Challenge #344 - See the color template above.

Fun Cuts: Faith, Hope and Love Challenge - J is for "Jewels" - I used sequins and tiny pearl stickers in the centers for my "jewels" to add a touch of bling.

Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge - Love Is In The Air - This card is an Anniversary Card to celebrate the love of two very special people.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I hope you're having a wonderful week.
