Perfect in Pink

Here's an adorable card using a fun image from Sherri Baldy and gorgeous paper from Paper Temptress.  Right now Paper Temptress has a fun Valentine Collection that I love because it has all sorts of reds and pinks as well as the shimmery yellow I am using on this card.  I am sure by looking at my blog, you can tell those are colors I love!
Paper Temptress will be offering a prize today!  Thanks so very much to her for doing so.
Check out the Valentine Collection. She will be sending it to the prize winner.
 
This card is using the Hambly Clear Overlays, this one is called Magenta Brocade.  It comes in a great 6x6" pack (Hambly Overlays pack 1), which is perfect for card sizes, you get  11 pcs, all different patterns on sale for $2.37.  The base of the card is a stunning shimmery piece, I know you can't see much of it here, but when the recipient opens it, they will really see how nice this cardstock is, it's Rose Quartz.  The pink strips are Cotton Candy Pop tones. The shimmery gold background is Gold metallic.  The white paper that I used on this card is called Heavenly White.  It's great if you use Copic Markers.
 
Which of these papers on the card are your favorite?  do you like these colors?  if not, what's your favorite color family?
 
  I will say that I saw some comments before that pink must be my favorite color, Yes, I do like pink, but I am using it a lot more than usual this month as it's a full month of LOVE theme cards.  In general, my favorite colors are Orange, Yellow, Brown, fall type colors....

Be sure to keep your eye on the winner list, it gets updated regularly now, you can get to it by clicking on the image in the upper right hand column.  ALSO, if you are new visiting, be sure and leave a comment on Feb 1st!  that's the main prize location for the month of which the grand prizes will be drawn.  You are also welcome to go back through the last week and leave comments during each posting as winners for those days have not yet been chose! click the Home link to go to the main blog.

Beautiful card Holley. Funny you should ask about the papers. They aren't my favorite by themselves, but when you color an image to match wow, really makes a huge difference. Your coloring is awesome.

Melody Strahan said...

The brocade overlay is also my fave! So luscious! This is my favorite card so far this month I think.

I tend to enjoy bright jewel tones best, and am hard pressed to choose a favorite color because I really love them all! I do tend to use a lot of reds and pinks in my artwork thought, followed closely by green, blue and yellow. I don't really use purple or orange much. I also use a lot of black and white.

Thanks to Paper Temptress for the wonderful prize! And thank you again too Holly!

Cute card. My fav collection is the teal. I like the 6x6 sets, but some of the designs that they made into 6x6 I think would work on cards - like the Chic Framed, the Journal Bits, and Vintage Patchwork

Beautiful, as always! I love the overlay; it's a very classic look. I tend to prefer earth tones or blues, but pinks and reds are definitely called for for Valentines!

Great card. I'm more a blue than a pink person. At the moment due to yukky weather I'm keen on brights so turquoise and bright orange would really be a fab combo

Cute image on a beautifully decorated card. Perfect!
I like the clear overlay a lot - such a nice pattern. I like to use pink or blue and brown combination on my cards.
Hugs! xx

Phi said...

This image is so sweet. So pretty in pink too.

thinkscrap said...

I love the brocade, though I fear I wouldn't know how to use it to it's full advantage. But I also like the shade of the pink strips. I don't know that I have a favorite color combo....it really depends on the papers I want to use, the mood of the card and what MY personal mood is that day :-)

Catherine said...

Adorable card dear... Love the image too.
