"Pink" and "Spring-y:!


Hello My Crafty Friends!
Today I am excited to share with you my first post for the Pinque Peacock Design Team!
You may remember when I excitedly made the announcement that I was selected for the team!

Today I would like to share with you a pretty card I made using some pretty pastel colors.  One of our creative options this month as a Pinquette was to use pastel colors in our design.
I started with some BEAUTIFUL fabric covered buttons from the Pinque Peacock Store- click on the word "store" to be taken directly to these buttons! 
How pretty are those buttons??  
When I first looked at these buttons, they did scream "spring" to me and also "flowers".  How would I make these buttons turn into flowers for my project?  Well as the pretty centers, no doubt!
I cut 3 different types of flowers using both my old Trusty Cricut and also using my
Silhouette Cameo! 

How perfect are the button centers!
I added a swirl of leaves and then mounted the card using a backgroud made
with  a Cuttlebug folder.

I used foam mounting squares to give dimension to these pretty flowers! 
I am just "tickeld pink" to be able to share with you today! I would love for you to stop by my blog at
and take a look around!
Thank you so much for visiting us at the Pinque Peacock. Please head over to the shop to see such lovely Springtime items for your projects!
