Pink and Brown Have Come to Town

Over at Polkadoodles this week they have a lovely challenge theme of pink and brown, and this was the starting for my card offering today.

I knew immediately which papers I wanted to use for this theme, and they are from the Polkadoodles Sundae of Seasons CD, which has some lovely generic patterned papers in lots of coordinating shades.

Next I picked this lovely LOTV bear with bird (actually a Christmas Stamp...but my Robin has contracted a strange disease which has turned him pink!) and used my Promarkers to colour them in to match my papers.

Finally I followed the Sketch n Stash challenge for the card layout, which I finally finished off with some Stickles glitter glue.

So there we have it...another card's amazing what time I have for all this stuff when I am not having to go to work!

Here are the lovely challenges that I would like to enter with this card:

In the Pink - Let's Fly Away
Polkadoodles - Pink and Brown
Sister Act - Anything Goes
Totally Gorguss - Anything Goes with Sparkle
Make it Monday
Bealy Mine - Anything Goes
Creative Inspirations - Anything Goes

That's my first post for today.

Watch out for another 'Pinky' post coming up soon!
