The Pixie Cottage Challenge - Pink and Red Color Combo

It's time for another Wish Upon a Wednesday at The Pixie Cottage.
This time the team were challenged to use mainly Red and Pink on their creations.
With Valentines Day fast approaching it gave us a chance to use the new stamps and also to go a little wild with the frills and flowers and all that fluffy stuff! LOL

There are a few other challenges that this one works for too.

Handfull of Stamps wanted Swirls, Swirls, Swirls
KL Stampin N Scrappin wanted Punches, Nestie or Die Cuts
Die Cuts R Us wanted Ribbon
Allsorts wanted Hearts and Flowers
Crafty Cardmakers wanted Hearts and Romance
Magical Crafts had a Valentines theme
Lexi's also had a Valentine theme
Crafty Catz had a Love theme
Crazy 4 Challenges had a Pretty In Pink theme
Humble Pie wanted Pink, Red and White and Hearts
Etsy Inspired had a Tutu store for inspiration and I chose this one for inspiration
Our Creative Corner had a super sketch
The Pink Elephant wanted Polka Dots, a Bow and Pink
Die Cut Dreams had a Bears theme
Just Cute Bears had their 1st challenge which was One for the Girls
Basic Grey Challenges had an Animal theme
Practical Scrappers wanted Patterned Paper
Flourishes had a "P" challenge and I chose Pink, Patterns and Punches
Scrap and Stamp wanted you to Use Your Stash and the flowers and sentiment are at least a year old and dp probably two years old.

I got to use one of the very latest Pixie Cottage stamps called I Love You Beary Much by the super talented Artish! He is such a cutie you have to go and get him right now!! LOL
I colored him with the following Copic markers:
Bear E11, E17, E37 and outlined with W3
Heart and Bowtie R27, R29, R39 and then I blended all with R08
Ribbon R81, R83, R85 and Flower RV25
The dp is Basic Grey from the Blush Collection.
The ribbons are Hobby Lobby and American Crafts, the border punch is Martha Stewart and the swirls are Doodlebug.

Inside is more Blush paper and a message mat with coordinating ribbon.

Here's a close up of Mr Bear, wouldn't you just want such a sweetie on Valentines Day?

I'd love to see you enter the challenge at The Pixie Cottage you could be the winner!
