Pinks and Yellows... here we go!

Challenge #74 is on over at Card Crafters Circle this week.
We run our challenges from Friday to Friday so get playing :-)
this week we want you to mix up pink and yellow.
It's great to see what you get up to each week and I love stopping by to leave little comments on your blogs :-)
We've used some wonderful images from our friends over at Floppy Latte

There's a great array of images to choose from and get crafting on straight away.
The team choose from the amazing frames range, pop over to the challenge blog to see what we've all been up too!
Here's mine...

The flowers were coloured in with water pencils. Have go at blending in different shades of green on your leaves and watch them come to life :-)
I picked up the sentiment stamp a few years ago from e-bay and just love it's meaning.
Instead of matting squares all the time, have a go at cutting a square larger than you need and turning at an angle. Trim off the edges and you're left with a different backing shape behind your main image.

The 'frame' for my main image is done with a Fiskars corner punch. Once you've punched all four corners you can then secure your picture in each edge (my fab little new buy!)
We all see lots of distressing on cards but how do you rough up your cards?
 I use the fab little distressing tool from Hougie Crafts. All you do is run your card through the little tool (blades inside are hidden) and is rough's up your card a treat ready to by inked.
Have fun with your cards this week!
