Chocking Colours

Hiya, a bit of a colour chock today, you might need sunglasses. I was doing a bit shopping two weeks ago and picked a vivid coral pinkish item, the seller told me it was all the rage for this season. So why not use it for a card?! A striking panel for all the cooling whiteness. 

Challenges:
CASology: Monochrome
4 Crafty Ladies: Things With Wings

Materials used:
Hero Arts long flower border, stamped with Distress inks (Picked Raspberries, Worn Lipstick, Cotton Candy), extra fine clear embossing powder. The same Distress inks were used to colour the panel.
Zig Zag scissors, EK Success corner adorner (the large one).
Impression Obsession sentiment, black Versa Fine ink, Penny Black small clear butterfly, Glossy Accents, gems from stash.

Thank you so much for visiting, it's much appreciated! Hope you're having a lovely Sunday evening and are ready for a new week filled with fun. I'll wear my chocking coral pink socks with pride!!!

Love and hugs
Maarit
