Red + Pink = Valentine

I never like holiday cards in traditional colors, for example, I hardly make a Christmas card with green + red, or a Halloween card with Orange + Black, but somehow, Red + Pink just spelled VALENTINE to me, is that the traditional color for valentine's day card, I guess it is! LOL!

Here's the color palette I used


And here's my Valentine's Day card





Hop over to Colour Q now if you want to play with this pretty palette!

Project 365 - Day 84 - 86

My husband and I love going to the strips even we are local and not tourist in Vegas, one of our favorite place is the Botanical Garden at The Bellagio, they have seasonal flower show in big scale, since it is Lunar New Year, they have the flower show in Oriental Theme right now, here's some shots from the Botanical Garden at The Bellagio.




I will show more photos of the beautiful garden soon!
