Favourite 2 colours at CYP!

It's a public holiday here today in Victoria so kids are off school... This morning we went to the Bombers Family Fun day (didn't really have much fun though standing in one line for an hour to get some signatures only to get there and there were different players there). Anyway, the boys had fun!! Guess that's the main thing!! Was a stinkin' hot day so glad they moved the event forward by a couple of hours!!
Anyway, not sure why I'm boring you with that.... it's time for a new challenge today at Craft Your Passion and it is "Your favourite two colours!" We are sponsored by Dilly Beans this week but unfortunately not all of us received images to work with so I have used a Crafty Sentiments image instead! Now I have to say that pink is far from being my favourite colour but I do love pink and brown together so I've used my favourite colour combo!!
I actually made this card over three days cos I wasn't too sure what to do, so I coloured the image in with tria markers, then left it. The next night I went through all my papers and found the embossed spotted brown and white paper. I couldn't find brown and pink paper that I liked so I decided to colour in all the white spots pink, I also did the same with the ribbon!! Was a tedious job but glad I stuck it out!! So I stuck the embossed spotted paper and the pink paper down which made a plus sign look. I added the ribbon and the image!! I then left it and thought about what I wanted to add! And finally I cam back on the third night and added all the die cut vines, flowers and  banner, buttons and butterflies!! I may have overdone it with all the embellishments but I actually really love the way it turned out!! Of course I added the kindyglitz to the flowers for a bit of shimmer and there are pearls there too.!!
Hope you can join us at Craft Your Passion this week!!
