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: 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!

I love your card! I made a card for the same challenge but I can't post it until after my sister's birthday (July 6). I love doing challenges, they make you create things you normally wouldn't create or think about doing and this way I'm getting cards made ahead of time so when something comes up I'm not creating the night or morning off.
