Good morning, I hope you are all having a wonderful Tuesday!
I had such a wonderful fun filled weekend. But now I am sick again. I have a head cold and have not felt so good for a few days again. When it all end?!? The concert on Friday evening was so fun!! A great trio to watch.. Le Ann Womack, Reba and George Strait!! 3 hours and 45 minutes of music at it's best!!! I had seats in the third row so I was about 20 feet at the most from the stage. AWESOME!!
Okay onto my card......... hee hee hee......
I seen that the Magnolia Down Under Challenge was for Pink and grey this week and I have never done a pink and grey card so I wanted to have a go at it. I had such high hopes for this card and it didn't turn out anything as planned. Does that ever happen to you?? My card is just to plain or stark just has NO pop!! Nothing jumps out and grabs ya!! I don't know just can't figure out why I don't like it. To much grey?? I just don know...
I have used a lot of goodies on it like, flowers, doily, silver domes, chipboard hearts, pearls, pink domes, ribbons, LOVE YOU ticket and a cute little present charm. I have inked and stitched all layer of the card. Around the grey I used my Autumn Leaves heart and swirl stamp added a few dots of white acrylic paint and of course a few stickles. On the right side I used one of my favorite Friskers heart edge punches.
Listed below are the challenges that I will be entering this card into this week.

Manolia Down Under - Pink and Grey

Little Red Wagon - Chipboard

Crazy 4 Challenges - Be My Valentine

Creative Card Crew - Valentines

Stamp with Fun - Hearts

This years flu and cold strains are horrible!! Everything has morphed into stronger, more resistant versions to counteract those vaccines!! I hope you are feeling better soon :) I am right there with you though, had a flu that lasted 2 weeks, been well for a week and came down with a cold yesterday. Yarg!! I'll bet you had a blast at the concert!!! Third row, that is really close, you could catch guitar picks that close!!

Now I am not seeing where this card went wrong, I think it is fabulous, the sweet little Edwin is appropriately encombassed in grey, because he is a boy.... but it is still very sweet and totally gorgeous with all of your fabulous accesorizing and beautiful swirls and pearls. I should also add the thanks for playing with MDUC part too, so it looks like I am doing my job, lol!!

Take Care,
Hope you feel better soon!!
