Just Be-Cogs

This was a challenge - I don't normally pair brown with pink. I tend to reach for soft or muted shades of green. I am really happy with how this turned out. This image is Peppy Tinheart from Paperworks Co. I just love this cute robot. She's coloured with copics and then mounted on Chocolate Chip. The base is Creamy Caramel, while the pink DP is more from my Costco case. I admit, I have 4 more cards to complete the Hope You Can Cling To challenge. After that, I will happily put my pink away for a little while.

The pink was embossed with a new Cuttlebug folder. I just had to have it as soon as I saw it because I knew it was perfect for this stamp. Even better, it's larger than the original Cuttlebug folders and can emboss all the way to the edges of a standard A4 card without needing mounted layers.

I just added some pink rhinestones and some brown pearls just to give it the final touches. I love how soft the card turned out.

Challenges this card meets:
Bizzy Becs - Short and Sweet
My Time to Craft - Quick and Cute
Delightful Challenges - Circles (Cogs in the background)
Incy Wincy - Anything Goes
Lexi's Creations - Anything Goes
