in the pink

Birthday greeting is inside.

When I started this card yesterday I had something slightly different in mind – then I messed up the entire thing because I forgot that the flower centers hadn’t dried and I smeared it everywhere. The air was colourful around here – LOL. At first I wasn’t sure if I could fix it so I left it overnight and sure enough this morning I figured out how to rescue it.

The puzzle strip hadn’t been fully glued down around the edges so I carefully cut off the messed up top and bottom part and basically started over. The two small flowers floating above and below the puzzle piece were easy to remove from the messed up panel so I was able to use them again as shown here. I also used a tiny fussy cut butterfly to cover up another area. Flowers are a die from Memory Box called Layered Impatiens. Sentiment is from a GKD incentive set and was fussy cut so it would be small. I doubled up a few of the flowers after adding a hint of pink to them. I hadn’t intended to use any dry embossing in my original idea but decided to add it to this version and the folder is from Tim Holtz. I can’t remember where the puzzle die is from and I sponged 3 different pinks over a panel before die cutting. Inks are Distress Oxides, Spun Sugar, Victorian Velvet and Worn Lipstick.

The card works for 3 challenges AAA Cards, Fourseasons and CYHTP.

Thanks for taking a look, it is appreciated.
