Pink and Brown LOTV

Hi everyone,

I love Pink and Brown i think it is such a fabulous colour combo and there are so many things you can do with it depending on the shades you use. I went for Mocha and Blossom from the Pink Petticoat range, those of you that have followed me for a little while know that i adore Pink Petticoat and the value for money is amazing and you are virtually always guaranteed to have the colours you need. So i printed out some different patterns and the solids on to card stock. I then decided i wanted to try a little more busy layout than i usually do. I love the detail loaded more busy layouts but i just find i can never get it to balance and i end up fussing constantly and giving up. I was determined this would not be the case this time.

I have a tendency to be highly critical with myself but i must confess that i am really happy with the way this turned out and i definitely think 2013 is the year to broaden my craft techniques. Its a bit hard to tell from the photo but the chipboard heart and flowers are coloured with metallic brown and pink star gelly rolls and they are lovely and sparkly.
