SBC #4 Valentine Birthday Color challenge

we are making Valentine Birthday cards with
a color challenge of black, turquoise, and pink.

This color combo totally reminds me of "Valley Girl" or 
"Pretty in Pink". Very 1980's. LOVE it!

I seem to be having a problem with my black hair coloring.
Maybe my pens are running out? They seem to gum up a bit
when I am trying to blend, and then the blender pen removes the
color in blotches, not smoothly. I'm just gonna blame it on the pens.

So I mounted the main image of Valentine Betty onto
scalloped circles and then used some destash of those
square brads. I also used some pink webbed ribbon and
rubbed glitter into the exposed adhesive. Fancy.

Join us this week at SBC.
