Cameos & Color

I love cameos. They are just adorable and very trendy in the crafting world. When Moxie Fab World issued a cameo challenge I knew I had to play along. I decided to mix it up by using this week's color challenge at The Play Date Cafe:


I'll be honest, when I saw these colors I thought "how in the world will I use them in a card???"  I think that's why it's called a "challenge".  It's neat to keep your style of crafting, but push yourself by adding elements you usually wouldn't. 

Here's my card:


Lots of pink, with a little red, blue, and purple.  This adorable paper and rub on are from Pink Paislee.  I used some pink liquid pearl, gems from Creative Charms, a Jenni Bowlin cameo, and ribbon from Papertrey Ink.


And a little Creative Charms news, the Deal Of The Month and Kit Of The Month are now available at the Creative Charms Store.  The February Kit Of The Month is titled "Simply The Best".  It is a 62 piece kit available for $14.99.


The February Deal Of The Month is called "Simply More" and contains 194 pieces of embellishment goodies for $6.99.


Enjoy!!!
