Pink Apothecary Birthday


This week's ColourQ challenge is a lovely, pretty combo...

I just had to something with flowers (again!) so I pulled out one of my favourites - Apothecary Art...

I was trying to figure out what to use for Sage Shadow when I found a piece of Venetian Romance dsp that had blue and green mixed together and looked pretty close to Sage Shadow, so I made a butterfly with it!

Here's the recipe:
Stamps: Apothecary Art
Ink: Stazon, Pear Pizzazz, Strawberry Slush, Pink Pirouette
Paper: Quatrefancy dsp, Venetian Romance dsp, Strawberry Slush, Pink Pirouette, Whisper White, Naturals Ivory, Silver Glimmer paper
Accessories: White button, silver baker's twine, white organza ribbon
Tools: Mosaic embossing folder, Labels framelits, Beautiful Wings embosslit, Beautiful Butterflies bigz die

I used the Create with Connie and Mary sketch for my layout:

Make sure you check out the fabulous creations from the rest of the Royal Court this week!

Thanks for stopping by...
