Floral in pinks

Hi everyone.  Back to a "me" type of card more than the last one.   This one is for a group am in that is mostly overseas persons.  Great group and they decided to do a challenge, wanting  to see a "pinks"  card.    Fun, just doing what want.  

This is a "Wooden" stamp.  Anyone who knows me also knows that they are absolutely the last thing to purchase as don't like using them, but loved this image, and it was on sale.    What can one do?  Purchase it !!!!

Really liking doing the square cards so much more than the tiny ones.   Play room.  
This is a stamp from Inkakinkadoo. and it was perfect. Then decided to try the promarkers that have been sitting here.   They had a special on the 2013 limited edition colours (24), and since all the gals were raving about them, this was a way to try and get some colours not here in markers.    It was great, found three to work with in the same kind of tones, and played. 

The stock is a shimmer pearlized stock 5.5" square with bazzill layered.   Had a heck of a time finding stock that matched the markers, again doing things backwards.   

The white for die cut cannot say, just pulled some pieces to stamp the new stamps on to see what they looked like, and ended up colouring it.   Sure it is not the marker paper.   Too white.  :)
So.  For the markers, used the Trick or Treat, Peony, Fresh Bloom, Pressed Leaf  for the florals and then added a touch of Capri Blue for the shadows in the bowl, and went over them with my blender to take away some of the blue.   

Die cut is the Lacey Circles from Spellbinders, with a larger one on the inside over the same pink stock, and two wee flowers coloured to match with bling in the middle of them, ready to personalize. 
The bitty bling again from Close To My Heart, and the ribbon from my fabric store.   I love to go and see the ribbon before getting it.  Generally otherwise, it sits here unloved.  
That's it .  The "pinks" spur of the moment card.  Hope you enjoy it. 

For the markers,  they are not used before, so am thinking it may take a bit.  The blending is not as smooth a transition as the twin touch or copics, but again they have the nib like my twin touch that love to colour with.   Will keep using them with the others and see how they play out.  Not many colours, but pretty ones to add to the group in house already. 

Yes, there is a watermark over the design.  A couple of the gals on the line actually had the cards hacked, the pictures used on someone elses cards, posted, and seen by those stolen from.  Posting something you have stolen.   Really ????

Sorry, but if you are not able to colour, don't steal, buy premade digis and cut them out.  If you can't do that, find another hobby because you obviously are trying to do something not in your realm of capabilities.   We are all different for a reason.    That is the most polite I can be.

So beautiful. I seldom do square cards because I don't have square envies but they do look awesome. Yours certainly does!

Very pretty Shari! Love your choice of pinks and coloring is perfect. I know, huh? Who has the time or desire to swipe other people's work? It means more steps for us to post, but what's a girl to do? Sending you love across the miles!!!
