BGC # 3 - color me pink, green, yellow and make me a Man !! :P

Howdy ?
I see you had fun with the last challenge ..
Pleasure is all ours..
How about another challenge? ;)
 We have an extremely soothing pastel palette for you... 
Baby Pink, Pastel Yellow, Pastel Green's the twist :D
Design a manly card/layout/project with these colors ... 

Wait till you see the goodies being offered by Lightbox Creative Store, our Sponsor for this challenge :)

 Looooook the gohjeusssss..butterflies.. the hatpins, the handmade flowers, the stickers, the trims and the twines ...
you ought to play for this and for its sheer challenging streak.

So ( Once again) ..your dare is 
to use the colours   Baby Pink, Pastel Yellow, Pastel Green and design a manly card/layout/project .. 
Don't ask who suggested it .. :P
Let me just run you through the inspiring creations our DT members came up with..

Mel says the card is simple ..!!
Ask me to make one like this and I'd be dead long before .. So she scoots by us with her CAS card with lime cardstock and a cutsy wootsy pink and green scooter ..Some serious paper piecing went into it and it has inspired me to try the technique.

Have a looksie people at this super-cute yet manly card ( a bit of a crush on it actually)..I mean the archaic telephone has added just the exact amount of manhood to the pastel colours. Romina has stamped on the pattern paper in such exquisite manner that it blends with the paper completely. I love the shape and the fact that it has a tagged note-card which can be pulled out.
Way to go Romina !

A mixed media layout is just what one needs to complete the circle. 
I love it to every bit of my existence and I am not exaggerating :D
I love the play of colours, the childlike exuberance..everything just melts into one ..making it a unique piece of art.

Yes yes...its always look through Pooja's creations. She comes up with such gorgeous layout like card ..that my jaw drops and most of the time I gasp for air and for some creative genius.. :P I can never combine extremely different elements and  make it look good ..but she surely can :P

I don't know what to say except I tried something really different from my style .. 
So its a pink background with green distressing and white stamping. I used beads and glitterballs to make the swirl and yellow eyelets as well. 

So what are you waiting for ??
Your time starts now.. :D 
Also you can always drop in a mail or comment in case of any confusion. 
Hope you find it challenging and inspiring ...
its me signing off from my chilled computer room ..with frozen fingers ..
Best of luck and best of times..
