Colour combo Challenge!

Morning All! What a lovely sunny morning again....I love the spring time!

Talking of springtime and new beginnings and things like that I've been thinking about trying out a new technique or two in my cards....I've recently started dabbling with stamps again and after a dodgy start I'm starting to enjoy that now. It's my Birthday in April and people always ask what I want so I thought I'd ask for new stash!! Any ideas would be much appreciated - whats your favourite technique to use??

So, last night I promised a card to fit in with this week's Allsorts Challenge, their challenge is a colour combo of pink, black and white.....gorgeous colours to use together. The DT have come up with a really varied selection of examples, all very gorgeous. Take a peek here to see them. So here is my card.....

Now I know I have been a little bit naughty here and there is some grey on there....but grey mixed with white makes grey and I hope the ladies over at Allsorts will let me off!!!

The paper with the hearts is gorgeous, I thought I'd used it all up on previous cards, but then at the bottom of my paper pile I found one last sheet! I'm not sure where its from originally and so this will be the last card to feature it, but I thought it would look great for an engagement card. Under the hearts I have used a fab vivid pink backing paper and I have used the same paper to cut out a heart embellishment. Before attaching the heart with 3D pads I have stitched around the edge using pink thread. Finally I used a pre-printed "engagement" sentiment to finish off the card....oh and a added a little pink gem! I like how this cards looks, as I think its quite romantic, but also quite modern.

I hope you've enjoyed today's card. Leave a comment below if you've got any ideas about new techniques for me to try....I'm open to all ideas as I love experimenting with craft!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a lovely day.
