Green and Pink, Never seen Ink

Green and pink, never seen ink is the theme for the One Layer Wednesday challenge hosted by Jennifer Styles this week.  We are to use green & pink on our cards and a stamp or stamps that have never been inked.

I have been wanting this Every Moment set since I saw it in the catalog last June.  I finally got it last week and it seemed perfect for this challenge.  Jennifer said we could use other colors too.  So I added a bit of Saffron overcolored with Daffodil Delight for the flower centers and the butterfly.  The petals are Pretty in Pink with a bit of Regal Rose over that.

I pulled out that little fern stamp from a retired set, Watercolor Minis, to add some foliage below the flowers.  There's a set in the Occasions Mini called Baby Blossoms that has a similar stamp.  If you want it, you better hurry though.  That catalog is only active until April 30.

Card Recipe
Stamps:  Every Moment, Watercolor Minis
Ink:  Black StazOn, SU Markers (Pretty in Pink, Regal Rose, Pear Pizzazz, So Saffron, Daffodil Delight)
Paper:  Whisper White
Accessories:  Corner Rounder

Thanks so much for the visit.  And I really enjoy the comments.
