Pink and Brown

Hello everyone and a happy Wednesday to all! It's a bright and warm sunny day today at 19C and it's a Public Holiday here in Malta too, so we decided to go out for a picnic with friends :) .. I nearly didn't go though as we are REALLY busy at the office and so some of my colleagues had to go in working even today ... but I wasn't in this team, so big woo hoo I didn't have to :D ..

Anyway, I have a card today for the new challenge at

The theme for this week is

I rarely use this color scheme on my card but after finding the right papers, I really thought how nice it was.... think I will be using it more too!

The image that I used is from Lili of the Valley, which I colored with my promarkers, Memory Box dies, Martha Steward punch, lovely papers from Forever Friends and a bow to finish it off. The Mother's Day sentiment is from Simon Says.

I'm really pleased with  how it turned out.... and my mojo seems to be back as it didn't take me AGES to make it!!!!!  ... so I'm pleased for that too :)

We are this week sponsored by Visible Image.

 I thought I would enter my card in some challenges for a change.. hoping I'll be lucky .. fingers crossed :D
