In the Pink - A Love Story

Hello Everyone!

Today I have another monochrome card for you done with DecoArt Cherry Blossom paint, but I have a good reason...it's IN THE PINK challenge blog time! Oh yeah, I love pink and their challenge this week is Challenge #50 - Anything Goes, so how can I resist! I will be sending this card to a good friend of mine who is getting married soon. I hope she likes it!

Here's a quick peek at the card before I share a couple of things with you.


I would to send a big hug to the super talented design team over at In The Pink for choosing my Thinking of You card as A Perfect Pinky! I am really tickled pink to display their badge! If you like to use pink on your cards, I really recommend you hop over there and submit your latest pink project. Make sure to check out the DT creations, they are always so beautiful and I'm sure you will be as inspired as I was!

  

HAPPY SECOND BIRTHDAY - IN THE PINK !!

OK, I have lots of pictures for you today. I had a hard time capturing the heart in the center of the card. It's 3D, but it's really hard to tell in the photos. I cut out the heart using Go Kreate hearts die set and stamped on my rose pattern with Hero Arts shadow ink Soft Blossom and then I used a large stylus to curve the heart and make it puffy. I stuffed it with some cotton balls and glued it in place. I used a piece of silk twine to hide the glue trail!! HA!


I have another big hug to send out to the design team over at CRAFTY BOOTS CHALLENGES. Such an amazing group of artists and they chose my Christmas card as their first place winner in the Christmas in July challenge. I am so excited to be able to display their badge! They have such a wonderful range of talent over there, you really should stop in and check it out!

  

This week it's Crafty Boots Challenge - Flowers, so I made sure to use lots of them!! All of my pretty pink flowers are made by hand using Joy Crafts Flower 1 & 4. They were coloured with Tim Holtz distress inks Spun Sugar and Worn Lipstick. The background rose pattern is from Impression Obsession, isn't it gorgeous? It reminds me of an old vintage wallpaper.





I would also like to invite everyone to check out some fabulous new challenges that I have found. I am excited to play along with them for the very first time!
