Color Hues #26 Purple and Pink

 Here is my second post today, welcome! I love pink, but purple? Not a fan. Putting these two together was a tough one for me, but I know there will be amazing samples in the galleries at Color Hues

I went with patterned paper for a background, and some glitzy snowflakes. In my stash I found some purple mirror paper.

The height of my creative ideas came with coloring pearls with my Copic markers for embellishments. 

I like how the card turned out, but getting a good photo was tough. What do I love? The sentiment! Inside it says, "Just like the snowflake, you are one of a kind."

Sending you warm wishes today! Thanks for visiting. Hope you will play along with our challenge. 

Be yourself

          Have delight in your craft 

               Make something beautiful!

This turned out beautifully! Very smart to emphasize the pink since it's more your colour. I love the combination on your card, though!

Purple is a tough one for me too, Cindy but you've used it perfectly! It peeks out just enough!

I love the idea of purple, glitzy snowflakes on a pink background--brilliant! It's such a fresh, clean take on a winter card!

Super card using one of my favourite tricks, colouring with Copics to get the right blend. My daughter's fave colour is purple but hates pink with a vengeance, how strange we all are, still it would be a very odd world if we all liked the same! :)

This is such a great Holiday card, Cindy! I don't use a lot of purple myself but you have accented the card perfectly! Love your colored centers! Have a lovely day and warm hugs!

It would be hard for me, too, but you made it shine! So beautiful, Cindy!
