Lots of Pink
Hi! I missed a day I know, but it's not because I'm not making things, it just because I'm making some things that I just can't share yet......but I will eventually :)
This one though was fun! Caardvarks is a blog that puts challenges on all the time and this challenge is to use pink because the sponsor is a new stamp company called Pink Persimmon. You can see more about the challenge here: http://caardvarks.blogspot.com/. Anyway, this is the card I made for the pink challenge. I was telling a friend of mine today about Caardvarks and about how challenges get me to do things I wasn't planning on doing right then. For instance, the punch I used on this card is a Fiskars punch that I bought about, oh, 6 months ago maybe. I just took it out of the packaging to do this card! I did make another card with it while I had it out :)
Okay, the details about the card. I started with a bazzill card base and I put it inside out so you can see the texture on the inside. I punched the slots into the back of the card and then cut the front so the back would be visible when I put the ribbon through. The plaid paper is an old paper from Daisy D's and the paper I punched the circles with on the sides is an old paper from Magenta. The stamps are both from Whipper Snapper and I stamped them both in Versafine Vintage Sepia. I colored with prismacolor pencils and mineral spirits. I mounted the puppy image on sugar coated paper from Doodlebug and then I added a prima flower and a glittered brad. I threaded the ribbon through the slots and tied a bow in the front. Fun!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great evening!
