A new Pink and Orange combo

Yesterday was the color challenge on SCS. When I saw the colors I said to myself, No Way-kiwi kiss, tangerine tango, and pixi pink! Now I've done pink and orange before, but the brightness of the pixi pink sure had me scared. Heck, I don't even have very much pixi pink on hand.

Of course, once I sat down, it all just came together. I created this little beauty! I put my theory of color combos to work-use least liked color the least amount. Here I played up the kiwi kiss (since it is one of my faves!) I watercolored the angel and added iridescent ice embossing powder to her wings. She is very sparkly in real life. I thought the soft, pretty, satin ribbon would be a great finishing touch. Today's another quick one, I've got a sick boy here crying his eyes out because his ear is hurting. It is breaking my heart. So, I'm off to the doctor today. Hugs,


  1. Great job with such a challenging color combo!! I don't think I have pixie pink either!! Love the embossing!! Hugs to your little man, being sick is terrible!!!

  2. Very fun color combo! :) I love this angel, too!!!

  3. This is just darling, the angel wings are just stunning, Great card!!!

  4. Lisa, what a GORGEOUS card. love how you used the cuttlebug on the layers and the angel is colored in so beautifully. GREAT JOB!! :)
