Die Cut Dreams Challenge #99 Pink, Brown and Cream

Hi everyone, time for a new challenge at Die Cut Dreams Challenge Blog but before I say what it is I must ssay thank you to all the flowery creations you made for our last challenge. It was very difficult to pick a favourite but check out the Die Cut Dreams Challenge Blog to see if you were the winner.
Our challenge this fortnight is a colour challenge.........


We are being sponsored by our very own Lynne from

Here is my card ........................

(just click on the pic for a bigger version)

I have used a Marianne Design creatable Bird on branch large cut out of brown and cream card and layered, I have used a distress ink to highlight the veins in the leaves. The ovals have been cut using the Spellbinders Petite ovals large nestabilities. I have inked the edges with TH Distress Inks Tea Dye and Spun Sugar. I have used one of Lynnes sentiments from the Just Birthdays set. The friends sentiment is from an Inkadinkadoo set called Flower Sentiments. The flowers were from a candy some time ago and teamed up with some pearl brads. Finally the papers are from a First Edition pack called Sweet Owl distressed and inked accordingly!!!
