Orange, Blue and Pink....hmmmmmm

Orange, blue and pink are the colors for this week's challenge on the PLAY DATE CAFE blog.
I saw those colors and I KNEW I had to try a card. What a combination!!! .I knew it would work because ALL colors work in different shades and different amounts... but I just really wanted to try it!!!
How fun!!!

So here's what I came up with. The heart, which is really the center of the orange/pink combo was a piece I had done while playing around with embossing powder and Pearl Ex thinned out with water. It turned out to be totally the right colors. YAY!!!

 That little strip under the double circle Martha Stewart punch is little beads. Doesn't that add a nice happy touch to the card? I love it. I haven't used beads for quite a while. I'm glad I tried it there. I really like it.
I am also entering it in the Hero Arts Challenge for Birthdays.
I love their blog too. Check it out.

Thanks for stopping by.
