Pink Elephant Challenge #5

Well, the weeks are cetainly rolling around rather quickly and we are already at Challenge #5 at The Pink Elephant.........and today we have a colour combo for you!
We would like you to create something using the colours........

So, go ahead and create a project of your choice, using these colours........and don't forget to leave your name with Mr Linky so we can all come and visit you to see what you've made!
I have a Mother's Day card for you today as of course here in the U.K. it is the 22nd of March!
I've used a fabulous Penny Black image called 'Andante'.......i LOVE this stamp and of all the stamps i have this one gets used time & time again!! My image has been coloured with Sea Brights 'Bikini Pink' for the flower and Adirondack 'Espresso' for the stem and then lightly misted with water before placing down on the paper.

The designer papers i've used today are Basic Grey from the 'Sultry' 6 x 6 pad, along with some Bazzill cardstock in brown & green. The scalloped circle that frames the image was made with a Marvy Giga punch 3"diameter although you could get the same result with Nesties!
My green card has been run through the Swiss Dots folder with my Cuttlebug, which left me with a plain area at the bottom for my sentiment. The card base is 53/4" square.

As i look at my card now, i'm kind of wishing i had added some lovely flouncy ribbon somewhere............maybe i can add it later!
I'm looking forward to seeing your work again this week :) you are all making so many gorgeous things and i would like to thank you all for helping to make The Pink Elephant such a fun place to be a part of! ;-D

See you soon.........
