Clean and Layering

It's 4am and I have been up since 2am...
another sleepless night in Michigan....
which means I will be worthless by about 2pm..LOL

So, while I was wide awake and bushy tailed....
I decided to look for a challenge that appealed to me
I came across a new "kid on the block" so to speak
and loved every bit of it!!

The challenge is "The Card Concept"
Wow...beautiful work by the design team...
beautiful entries....
you should visit there and see how it works.....very creative and fun!

I choose to do "Clean and Layering" using the inspiration piece
Monochromatic "pink".....



I picked this as I have all these little bags full of things I have cut, colored
or just not used because it just wasn't right for the project I was working on
and being the OCD person I am, they are all sorted by color..
Everything on this card was in the "pink" bag, making it come together quite nicely!!

Hmmmm, I've never thought of sorting by color. I've got lots of bits and pieces in my card parts box. Your method would make them much more managable. And look how pretty! Love all that pink! I went through a few years of that sleeplessness. It was awful, I was worthless, and I felt it was taking years off my life. Then started taking a magnesium supplement at bedtime and now I simply lay down and go to sleep. It's not a sleeping pill, but it has a calming effect that allows my mind to turn off. Who would have thought?

This is GORGEOUS! Love all the elements you put together on this card and that flower ... WOWZA ... B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L! So realistic!
Sorry you've had another sleepless night ... hopefully that will come to an end once the weather turns nice and you can get outside and get some fresh air!
HUGS and thanks once again for inspiration!

First of all, I'm so glad to know that there are otherslike me out there in blog land that sort the wee scraps of paper by color :)

Fabulous varying shades of pink that have created such a pretty monochromatic color scheme! "Love" the bit of bling too! Thanks for choosing to share your card with us this week at the Card Concept Challenge :)
