My card for the first Card Chain Challenge of 2023 went to Pia in Norway!
There were a few challenge options to choose from this time and I managed a couple - the colour option is always the one I go to first but this month I was also able to use the Product/Technique option of Distress Oxides and as Pia and I have been following each others blogs for some time now she is amongst my blogland 'friends' so I also could use one of the theme options too.
This is the first one using Pink!
A little moon mask started the background and I blended some Picked Raspberry round it first then moving downwards lightly, before swapping the colour for Saltwater Taffy to fade it down.
The darker of the floral branches were stamped with Altenew Razzleberry ink.
The second and third gen stamping was done using Versafine Clair Charming Pink. The stamp is from an Oriental Blossom set by Inkylicious.
I die cut the branch and birds and then gave the birds a quick blend with the remainder of the Picked Raspberry left on the blender.
Added the little sentiment and then die cut the arched frame (Moonstone Dies) for the panel to sit behind.
It's not an exact replication of the colours on the challenge post but not far off!

This is a sweet card and I love it done in pink. I like the arch die you used. You are so right with the sentiment, life is better with friends.
Sweet birdie friends with all the gorgeous pink flowers, Viv - great take on the January CCC colors and themes!!
It's such a beautiful design, so it's a great idea to have made more of this design in different colors. Your card hangs on my inspiration board in the craftroom, I love it.
That really is beautiful Viv! I bet the other colours look good too!
Stunningly beautiful Viv x
I just adore these pink tones Viv, and the new DI Saltwater Taffy is a gorgeous colour and goes beautifully with the two different pinks for the oriental blossoms, and the contrast with the white branch and the pink birds sitting on it works brilliantly, and all in that beautiful arched shape...a gorgeous card! x
This is so pretty, Viv! It's definitely a design worth repeating many times! Love these shades of pink and the sweet birds! I'm sure Pia is delighted with this!
