crushing on some color...


In the mood for a color combination that is a mix of winter and spring.  After a chilly couple of weeks, but the tease of a warm day mixed in, the Color Crush inspiration at Pink Paislee this week is the perfect combination.


So many possibilities.  Took this challenge to create a couple of cards.

Looking to give these cards a soft touch with all of the light colors plus the addition of some tulle that has been floating around my craft room.


To create this background, and mute the yellow just a bit, I added a pleated layer of tulle which was then stitched along the edges and trimmed.


Added layers of Cottage Farms, Hope Chest, Artisan, Luxe and Portfolio collections.  If you take a look around the Pink Paislee blog and see all of the projects that showcase these burlap butterflies.  It is amazing that it adds to each piece without feeling like too much.  So light and beautiful!

Does this Color Crush combination inspire you?  Take a look at the blog today and the rest of the week for more.


Playing with a little Pink Paislee Digital today from their Affirmation collection, both the elements and journal cards.  Put this together in ten minutes and my desk is clean!

So glad to see you are creating layouts. I'd love buy some, if you get the chance to put any in your store. (Although I have missed out on your other cuties you've been stocking the last couple months!)
