This is for today's color challenge to use Pretty in Pink, Melon Mambo, and Cherry Cobbler and also for the Teaparty challenge to make a card with flowers and gold for a very special person named Katie going through very hard times.
My card has gold for Hothead Jed, and a flower, which I suggest he gives to his long suffering wife who has put up with his hot head for years, and I also told him to buy her a dishwasher with his new found wealth, solving the problem of her dishpan hands - all in all, I think my advice will put their relationship on a whole new level, and the atmosphere at the tea party will be way more fun!!!
If you'd like to know more about the party, check it out here:
The flower was stamped three times and colored with copics (using not only shades of the colors listed abover but probably every pink copic I own!) - it's popped up in layers and I added gold brads for the center. I gold embossed flourishes and small dots from Rubber Stamp Tapestry. I also embossed part of a leaf from SU's Lovely Leaves, cut them out, dipped the edges in embossing powder, embossed again and popped those up behind the rose. The card opens up from the far right hand side, I seem to be into making them that way these days.

OMG! Don't anybody pick it! I think it might possibly be a prize winning $42,000 flower. Call the Gardening Society or who ever pays big bucks for flowers! The gold alone is worth 42,000 times more than the gold in the river! I get dubs on this find! Snort! Okay, okay, if I get this flower, I will throw in a dishwasher Jed....and some roses for Dishpan Fran...and a bathtub for Splish Splash Nash!
OMG! This is awesome awesome! Holy moly its beautiful! I love that its so simple but so strikingly beautiful! Nuttin simple about your beautiful coloring though! Oooh........Love it! And so will Katie!

What a splendidly gorgeous creation. I like orienting my cards the same way!
Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. ~Leo Buscaglia
