For todayís Color Challenge on Splitcoast (CC425), the colors are Pink, another Pink & GrayÖand also a dash of green w/ flowers for dessert. I have the 2 pinks, the dash of green & the flowers, but only a hint of gray in the colors of the window. I donít have a gray embossing powder (& so little gray paper left, it's not worth mentioning, must be "time to shop"), so I used a black (for the stained glass window) and hope thatís acceptable.
After embossing the stained glass window on designer paper, I added a few white accents w/ a white gel pen then added the coordinating die cut frame. The sentiment was stamped onto a ribbon banner and sponged inside w/ pink ink. The piece of Cheery Lynn flourish & little punched flowers I had left over from another project so I used them. Itís all attached to another piece of designer paper and the finished card is 4.25 x 5.50.
Thanks so much for looking! I'll have it on my blog in just sec: The Write Stuff
ETA: Thanks to those who thought I colored in the window, but it was just embossed on dp & I used a white gel pen just in a few places.

Like a glorious stained glass window in a church, Julie. Your card is stunning. As for the black...it is a neutral in my book....and most CC challenges say "and neutrals of your choice". I'm still gazing at your beautiful colors in the window.
