Color Hues #26

Pink and Purple.  These are the colors for Color Hues this week.  My card didn't quite turn out like I imagined but it's still lovely.

I white heat embossed the Sweetest Peas from Altenew on watercolor cardstock and painted them with Altenew watercolors in Pink Diamond and Lavender Fields.   Then came the problem.  I couldn't decide on a background.  I tried a number of things but ended up with pink cardstock embossed with the PinkFresh Diagonal Stitched Plaid.  For the sentiment I used the PinkFresh mini puff stickers that came in the SSS July kit. 

That's it for me.  Thanks for dropping by.
