Pink Goes with Everything

Have you ever spent an entire evening trying to make one card work?  Well that was me yesterday.  I spent ages going over it with layers of colours.  I cut it out.  I ruined three card blanks trying to get it to work and finally... I threw it in the bin.  So today, I decided to chill out and make something silly that I couldn't get stressed over.  Dustin Pike's images over at Doodle Dragon Studios are always good for a grin.  I bought a set ages ago - I think it was for a fund raiser he was doing - and I've never coloured them up.  Today I coloured two.  I may blog the other one at a later date but this one I decided to enter into this week's Freshly Made Sketches Challenge.  After yesterdays fiasco I was grateful to feel happy with the result.  What do you think.

Daft isn't he.  Here's the sketch I was following. I admit to making it a square card rather than a rectangle.  What can I say - I'm a rebel.

Thanks for reading.

  2. A super card Dawn, such a fun image and great design.
    I often spend hours trying to get a card to work - I find it works to just walk away from it and leave it a day or two.

  3. Dawn this is such a cute card, that flamingo wit the big smile is so fun! Thank you for sharing with us at Freshly Made Sketches this week!

  4. What fun and what a grin! I like the wood grain paper on the circle, it really compliments the colours on your image and it's a terrific card!
