Swap Sisters.....Challenge #5

Well....most of you aware of my relationship with PINK. This week at Swap Sisters....they evoked a Dr Phil-like challenge and obviously wanted it and I to "just get aloooowwwwwnnnngggg" (insert Dr Phil-like drawl!!) This is what was set.....


For those of you with diminished eyesight....it's Chocolate Chip, Regal Rose, Pink Pirouette and Whisper White. Not 1......but 2 PINKS!!!!!!! Oh the agonal pain and torture. However, after a minor breakdown and a wee lay down....I decided that I COULD do this and hit the challenge head on. At first I thought I cld do 4 cards and really show pink who is boss, but then I decided 2 would be better...LOL!! I also set myself the challenge of reaching into my stamps and using the first set that I grabbed....and the winner was...Eastern Blooms - probably because it was on top and the set I last used huh?? I also his SCS for a bit of inspiration. I found this as a starting point and came up with this....



I scored the border like the original. I like the effect.



The 2nd card I found whilst blurfing and must have had it for such a long time that I can't even locate the original post!! I Googled and also tried to find the web link superimposed over the card to no avail, so all I can say is thanks to the creator of this card....


Helping me to create this...


I do not have any Regal Rose or Pink Pirouette markers....so I samped the imaga each time in the colour and cut around the flower and stuck it on. I think it gives it a slight 3D effect. The Regal Rose DSP also adds textural interest.

Hope you like these challenge efforts. I have EVERYTING crossed that the pink run now has a rest...hee hee hee.

Stuff Used:
CS: (SU) Whisper White, Chocolate Chip, Pink Pirouette, Regal Rose DSP (fm Patterns Pack II), Bella Rose DSP
Ink: (SU) Regal Rose, Pink Pirouette, Chocolate Chip
Other bits: Dimensionals (SU), scoring tool.

Hi gorjun! I was going to say ... that you did cheat a little ... because there was VERY LITTLE pink on your first card ... but then you redeemed yourself with the second. You were very brave ... and this is a very successfully delivered challenge! Way to go, Lynda! I am impressed that you looked PINK in the eye ... and went for it!!! Congrats! Hugs, A xxx

My Oh My! Have you challenged yourself or what!

I absolutely love your card and your attitude my girl!

You did this week's Challenge is more than one way and I am so glad that you are stepping outside the box and dismissing your aversion to "pink".

Well done! A great example of a Swap Sister.

Thanks for the shout out and taking this week's Challenge.
