Sweetest Peas for Paper Players #428

Hi Everyone. 

It's the fabulous Laurie's turn to host our Paper Players challenge this week and she has a color challenge for us:

I started with a Smoky Slate base and stamped flowers from Altenew's Sweetest Peas with the darkest grey.  I then colored the flowers with a few different pink pencils that are as close to Melon Mambo as I could get.  I added the slightest touch of yellow to the base of the flowers, but the photographs are showing much more yellow/orange than there really is!
Here's my card:
Sweetest Peas (1 of 1)
I hope you will join us and play along.   The design team have some fabulous inspiration for you:

On a personal note:

OK.  It's snowing.  AGAIN!  We are expecting another 3-5 inches today and then more on Tuesday.  Oh... and it's still cold!  I'm hoping to get into my craft room today.  If I do, then I will be back in the week to share the cards and some more photos.  In the meantime, warm hugs and prayers for those of you who need a lift tonight.
