Basic Grey Challenges Design Team - Hot Pink, Lime Green, and Kraft

This week at Basic Grey Challenges we have a color challenge for you all. The challenge this week is to use Hot Pink, Lime Green, and Brown/Kraft. I LOVE this color combo, so fun and summery!
I used Basic Grey Sultry papers for this card, the colors were just perfect!!! I love how the Kraft cardstock just sets everything off, looks amazing! I used a Lime Green silk ribbon to contrast all the pink. I paired the papers up with one of my all-time fave Magnolia images, Tilda with heart. I just think she is soooo cute! I cut Tilda out using my Oval and Beaded Oval Nesties. I added Viva Decor Pearl pen around the edges of the beaded ovals for an added touch.
I colored Tilda with copics.
Skin - E21, E000, E00, R20, R30
Hair - E27, E23, E53
Dress - RV17, RV14, RV3, RV10, RV00
Socks and heart- RV13, RV10, RV00 (I added Rock Candy Stickles to the heart for a tiny bit of sparkle)
Shoes - E44, E43, E42, E41

Of course, I added some Wild Orchid flowers to the card. I used green and white 25mm roses, green/yellow two-tones cherry blossoms, and white 15mm roses. The white roses I sprayed with Pink Taffy Glimmer Mist. I layered the flowers on top of a Doohickey Swirl cut out of Kraft, and also punched some Frond leaves with my Martha Stewart punch.
I finished the inside of the card with the same layout design as the front of the card.
I hope you will pop on over to Basic Grey Challenges and join us this week in our color challenge. I cannot wait to see what you create!
