Mel came up with this lovely easel card for the 1st challenge.
dont u just love the use of that amazing grey doily ? It truly brings out TILDA's colors.
i totally love the tiny pink blooms and the layering is really neat , for the Drop of black the borders and the flourish has been used very intelligently .
thanks mel.

This is Romina's take on the color palette .
The image is a digi ( New year freebie from our sponsor Woopsie daisy. )
The pink flowers and the black butterflies with that lovely use of white frame is truly eye catching!
Thanks Romina !


Next up is neelu with her creative take on the color palette. She presents us with this amazing layout which truly is clean and simple! she has been recently blessed with a baby :)  congratulations on that good news. The bubble wrap technique used to make the background is just superb! and the layering as well as the placement of the whole page is just amazing !
thanks Neelu!


Kalindi has come up with this beautiful tag for this challenge. The flowers are handmade (u can start poking her for a tutorial :P) Love the shade of pink used here and its sparkly ! She used a Grey congratulations sentiment , and the rhinestones are black. The ribbon and the way the edges are done brings out the color of the flowers even more. 
Thanks Kalindi.

This is my take on the palette. i layered some Design papers in pink and grey.
All the flowers are handmade and for the drop of black used a corrugated E-flute paper as a banner. 
Thanks for tuning in every one. 
Hoping for your full participation and support!
