Think Pink!

Hello all! It's time for another fun-filled Flourishes noon time release week challenge! This one takes me back to my teenage days when Molly Ringwald ruled the silver screen. You'll see why below! ;-) Today's challenge is all about shades of one, ever-so-feminine color. Play along and you could walk away with all three of Flourishes new sets for June!

What’s today’s challenge? Check it out!

HOW TO PLAY: See these colors above? All you need to do is make a card or creation by using this palette as your inspiration and you’ll be in the running! It’s just that easy! With three stamp sets on the line, what are you waiting for? Just click HERE to get in on all the official rules!

On to my creation! I have to say, the set Flourishes is sneaking today is just such a whimsical set. Have you seen it? It's called Make a Wish and it's fit for royalty! It comes complete with tiara, wand and some beautiful and frilly slippers! Because this want is just so different and has a definite Marcella Hawley touch, I just had to use it for my creation!

After picking out some scraps of pink paper from my stash (some My Mind's Eye and some from Basic Grey's Life of the Party), I layered and used Spellbinders Beaded Squares for the shape of my mat. After running it through my Grand Calibur and embossing, I used a sanding block to sand the embossed edges to reveal the paper's white core. My little magic wand was colored up with Copic markers and I used the Spring Greens, Peony, Lenten Rose, and Dogwood collections. I also used C3 and C1 to color the wand's handle. Add some glitter glue and... ta da! The sentiment "dream" is also from the set. The ribbon is a wired crushed silk that was part of one Flourishes 5th Avenue kit. I added a row of pearls around the beaded square and... fini!

Here's a close up.... And here's a peek at a little accent I added. These fun stick pins are a part of Flourishes 123 Create Kit called Yacht Club...
