Pretty in Pink.....

Hello everyone: I have a card to share with you for the CASology challenge with a Cue Card PINK, here is my card.

I really wanted to emphasize the color pink so I just colored one flower from the gorgeous Power Poppy stamp set AZALEA by Marcella Howley, with my Prismacolor pencil #995 Mulberry adding a bit of white pencil to the petals for shine. I think this flower really pops off the panel but believe me, I struggled with leaving the rest of this beautiful branch colorless.
There is no sentiment, just the word stamped in Melon Mambo.
Here is a close up of this pretty pink flower.


And this is a picture of the finished inside of my card.


The sentiment and the flower in the corner are from the same set.
Here is the CASology Cue Card that inspired my card.


Thank you for stopping by, until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.

    1. Thank you Michele, I colored it with just that one pencil and when I was finished, it really looks like it's propped but it's not. I thought of cutting a circle around it and pop it up with foam adhesive but I chose to just leave it as it is.
