As a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, I don't really think of colours in terms as simple as "pink and blue", but just used that description to avoid a super-long post heading!

The main colours in the card I have to share with you today are Blushing Bride, and Pool Party - two of Stampin' Up!'s gorgeous "in colors".  Unfortunately we'll be losing Blushing Bride when our new catalogue comes out later in the year.  It's a lovely pink, that I'm really enjoying using at the moment.

My card came about all because I had a 'negative' cut out of a Framelits die, left in a piece of Blushing Bride card.  Rather than throwing it away (which I tend to do ... in an effort to lessen my hoarding!), I decided to use it as a 'window', to show a piece of the gorgeous new Attic Boutique Designer Series Paper.   Using the Apothecary Art stamp set that goes so beautifully with the Framelits dies, I made what I think is a lovely, girly, card.

Stamps: Apothecary Art, Trendy Trees (sentiment)
Card: Very Vanilla, Soft Suede, Blushing Bride
DSP: Attic Boutique Designer Series Paper
Ink: Blushing Bride and Soft Suede stampin' pads, Pool Party ink refill
Other: Beautiful Wings embosslits die, Labels Collection Framelits dies, Finial Press embossing folder, aquapainter, Basic Pearls, sponge daubers, Victoria Crochet trim, Blushing Bride pleated satin ribbon, stamp-a-ma-jig, Mat Pack and Paper Piercing tool, stampin' dimensionals, sticky strip
