Dilly Beans Shades of Pink and Black

TGIF! We've got some nasty rain today and I'm wondering where our Spring weather has gone. Actually, WHAT Spring weather? Here in the Bay Area, we've seen nothing that truly resembles our Spring. Bummer, but we do need the rain. At the Dilly Beans Designers and Challenge Blog we're in the pink though, with a color challenge of shades of pink and black. This should have been a snap, but there are so many cute digis at the Dilly Beans Shop that lent themselves to these colors that I had a tough time deciding. I went with #383Abby Framed and then decided to add a flower wreath to her head from Megan's Posie Set. She's colored with Copics and set on a heart doily I've colored black with a Sharpie. The light pink mat is embossed with a 5x7 Cuttlebug folder from the Heritage Companion set. It's set off with another mat, this time in black and I've addded some adhesive pearls for good measure. All in all, pretty CAS, but Megan's gorgeous images don't need much else. Be sure to stop by The Challenge Blog and see the fabby creations by the rest of the team and we love to see what you create, too.

I'm also entering this in the Paper and Such CAS Challenge and the Art with No Bounderies "The Eyes Have It" Challenge.
