Pink card

Hi!! Today is pink day at My Paper Crafting! The challenge this week is to use your favorite cartridge and come up with something PINK! My daughter is a huge fan of pink, so it's been around our house for many years.

I have to admit that while I don't hate this card, it's not my favorite. The intent is there, it just didn't come out quite like I expected it to. I think we all have that happen occasionally. I used the Elegant Cakes cartridge to cut the floral flourish at 2". The patterned paper is from Prima and the solid is from The Paper Studio. I used pink Stickles on the plain paper to add a little more interest. The ribbon is from my stash. I used 2 different embossing folders, one Sizzix and one Darice, for the backgrounds. The bottom layer was inked around the edges with MS ink.

I hope everyone has a great "pink" day!!

  1. Lynn, your card turned out very well! It really is a wonderful look! I especially love the floral flourish! :)

  2. Well I am loving this card Lynn!! I am also a "pink" girl! lol I love how simple but elegant your card is and I am so loving that die cut!! Hugs!

  3. I think it turned out really well. I love the embossing and the cut you selected. I appreciate cards with few embellishments - they make a very sweet statement.

  4. Oh, Lynn! How I can relate to the "didn't come out how I expected it to" comment! However, I think this card is lovely. I like the clean and simple feel you achieved. And the embossing really sets the tone for your wonderful vintage-feel card.

  5. So pretty! I love the embossed background :)


  6. The pink against the embossed script background is really pretty. I totally understand when you say it didn't turn out as you expected. Happens to us all but it is really pretty.
