Moxie Fab World Color Challenge

I am not sure what possessed me to do a PINK monochromatic color challenge but I suspect it was the oxygen deprivation I experienced Saturday morning somewhere around mile 1.5 at the top of the hill...  At any rate things just seemed to fall together for this card so who was I to resist fate?

The colors are Bazzill - Pinkini, Precious, and Bubblegum.  We were to use this exact color combination in an innovative way.  We could use cardstock, patterned paper, embellishment, ink etc but were to ensure it matched JUST the colors listed.  (Adding a neutral, like white, was ok)

So off I went to 2 different stores trying to get one of the 5 color combinations that were posted over the last week.  I never dreamed it would be as hard as it was - the only one I got all the colors of Bazzill was this one.  I do have equivalents that I think will work for the others so watch for those to be posted shortly. But I digress...

Even though I am totally out of my comfort zone I am very pleased with the card.   The base is from my stash and if it's not Bubblegum it is it's twin sister, added a Pinkini layer which had been embossed with the Cuttlebug Happy Birthday folder, and the Precious was stamped with the sentiment from Hero Arts Messages set (a new release I LOVE) and was stamped in Versa Color Orchid.  The ribbon and flower are Michael's own brand.

The flower is a clip and can come off the card so the recipient can wear it - how cool is that?  I make cards for Operation Write Home and and totally see some Service members little girl wearing it to school and saying her Mommy or Daddy sent it... Yeah I'm weird (wink wink)
