Less is More week 92-colour

Morning all from a glorious sunny day in London town, albeit a tad cold!! This weeks theme at LiM towers is a colour one and Chrissie wants to see PINK
Not a colour I normally go for but there are some lovely shades to choose from so here is what I came up with;

I tried several places to film it but I had used pearlescent card and it's a b....r to photograph! I used the stamps from SU Everything Eleanor and popped one up for dimension and added some liquid pearls for the stamens. The inks were Victorian velvet and Spun Sugar DI. I punched out the little bird and stamped the sentiment on him and put him in the flowers.
Just back from lots of Charlie cuddles in Portsmouth and a lovely lunch and some retail therapy with Chrissie in Gunwharf on Saturday which was also a lovely sunny day:)
Hope the weather is good wherever you are and I hope you leave a comment so I can return the visit.

This is gorgeous Val, the little bird looks right at home nestling in the flower.
Saturday was super, it was lovely to see you and I must admit that I am delighted with my purchases!
Here's to the next time!
Thanks so much

Beautiful work, Val. I love the colours you chose. Your stamping and layout look really lovely. That little bird is so sweet.
I'm pleased to hear that you had a lovely weekend with lots of Charlie cuddles and retail therapy with Chrissie xx

How pretty is this. And I am sure it is even prettier in real life. I was trying to photograph a pearly card as well but just could not. Love everything about this card.

This is so pretty - love Everything Eleanor. Sorry I've not commented on your lovely creations recently - my side bar hasn't been updating regularly for some reason and I've missed quite a few new posts from 'regulars'. All brilliant work as usual.

Hello Valerie,
The weather in Belgium was also good today, but now i'ts beginning to rain! Your card is so beautiful, I didn't see it that pink isn't your color. When I see it, it's just like you use pink every day!

Lovely card Val. Great where you've concentrated everything in the bottom left corner. Glad you've got such lovely weather. Sunday morning was pouring with rain (from the early hours) and the next minute we had a white out! Never seen such huge flakes of snow - around 2.5" diameter - and although it was so wet it settled and after about half an hour we had about 2" settled on the drive but did it deflect us from our trip to the Taunton craft show? Not on your life......we arrived to blue skies and sunshine and astonished faces upon seeing the remnants of snow on the car!!! lol
