JAI # 34

This weeks challenge is a colour.
My first thought was YUCK!
I'm definitely not a soft pink girl. I haven't got Pretty In Pink Card or Ink, I did have a bit of Pink Pirouette Card from a Assorted In-Colour pack from last year so I borrowed my friends (Liz Thanks) Pink Pirouette Ink Pad.
I had a Sympathy Card to make and thought these colors would lend them selves nicely for it.
I have used 'Every Moment' , 'Thoughts and Prayers' and 'God's Blessings' Stamp Sets.
'Every Moment' is a great Stamp Set for watercolouring.
I have used most of these colours before but  not together, it's good to be out of our comfort zone from time to time.
I'm pleased with how it turned out, even though it doesn't do anything for me. 
My niece Jessica (ChCh refugee ) is staying with us, and she loves it.
The colours are my sisters colours and I'm sure she would like it also.
What do you think?
Supplies List
Stamp Sets: Every Moment, Thoughts and Prayers and God's Blessings.
 Card Stock: Crumb Cake (Kraft), So Saffron, Pink Pirouette and Watercolour Card.
Ink: Pink Pirouette, So saffron, Certainly Celery, Sahara Sand and Stazon Black.
Extras: Certianly Celery Ribbon (retired), Aqua Painters, Big Shot and Perfect polka Dots Embossing Folder.
I will be back tomorrow with another card that I made yesterday, I had a very productive day yesterday.
Till then have a  great weekend, I hope you get some crafting done and some relaxing.
