WOC #12 - Color Challenge

Welcome to the craziest week of the year for me!  This week is my final exams....5 exams to take and one presentation to do!  I'm ready to pull out my hair...LOL!!!  But by Friday afternoon I will be MUCH better!  This weekend I got away from studying for a little bit to go run some errands with my hubby...we pretty much got most of our Christmas Shopping done...which is good because I don't have time this week to fit that in, ha ha!  Last night we also got hit with a MAJOR snowstorm....we got over 14 inches of snow!  YUCK!!!  I really am much more of a tropical girl, than a midwest girl....the snow and cold don't do anything for me...especially when I have to drive in the icky weather...the roads are plated in ice and snow right now....should make for an interesting drive to school!

BUT...on a much better note....today is Wild Orchid Challenge Day!  Woo-hoo!!! This week we are challenging you to ONLY use PINK, WHITE and SILVER on your creations!  I absolutely had a ball with this challenge...if you follow my blog you know that PINK is my ultimate favorite color....my hubby is teasing me and telling everyone that when we build our house it will most likely have pink siding! ROFL!!!  Well maybe not that...but I can guarantee my craft room will be PINK!!!
I've used one of the newest stamps over at SCACD for my card today....this is Look Out Below by Elisabeth Bell for SCACD! She comes in the Winter Sampler Collection...and I have to tell you I absolutely LOVE this set!  The pink paper is from the Bo Bunny Doodles collection, which was matted with white cs and silver metallic cs.  The panel that this cutie is popped up on has been embossed with my Cuttlebug snowflake folder and then the panel was spritzed with Maya Road Iridescent Pearl Mist!  OMG do I LOVE the pearl-essence effect that this mist gives...it's definitely a must have!!!  The embossed panel is accented with 5mm Self Adhesive Pearls from Wild Orchid Crafts....love the range of colors they have available!  The bow was made with my fantastic Bow Easy...this seriously is an amazing product to have...I haven't made a bow without it since I bought mine almost 2 years ago!
Of course this cutie pie was colored with Copics and accented with a white gel pen.  The pom pom on her hat, bow on her hair, snowflakes on her mittens, boots, and scarf have been accented with Illuminate Smooch!  The tassels on the end of her scarf were made with some embroidery floss. Then to make it appear as if she is sledding down a hill I added some Liquid Applique to the bottom of her sled.
Flowers are from the fabulous Wild Orchid and consist of: a pink Gardenia which has been placed on top of a punched silver snowflake and then layered on to a NEW flat bloom (which WOC has just gotten into the store...you get a HUGE assortment in each collection), the 15mm roses have been layered onto of padded silver snowflakes (I totally am in love with these!!!!), and the arrangement was finished with 10mm roses and 5mm closed rosebuds.  Flowers have been accented with 3mm self adhesive pearls in pink.

I hope you've enjoyed this cutie!  Make sure you check back in a little bit because I will have my Make A Mess Monday post up for you....and you are NOT going to want to miss this one....we are talking a girl's best friend here!!! :)

Stay safe on the roads & keep warm - keep an extra rug in the car for emergencies. All the best with the exams too. Love the fringed edge of her scarf & the vibrancy of the pink & blue with white. Quite stunning.
