So Pretty in Pink

                                                            So Pretty in Pink

Hi Friends

Here we are at the end of another week...I don't know where the time goes but it's sure flying by... too fast, actually :-(.

Todays card is pink... really, really pink!  I'm not normally a pink person although I don't dislike it, I just tend to gravitate toward the more muted and earthy tones. That said, I checked out the Color Throwdown for this week and... you guessed it... lots of pink.  You can view the challenge here.  Pretty in pink, melon mambo, and bravo burgundy.  Well, ok... now I needed a sketch so I went over to Tuesday Morning sketches and love the sketch for this week.  You can view their challenge here.

I used all Stampin Up products for this card.  The stamp sets I used were Lacy & Lovely and Gorgeous Grunge.  I realize I didn't follow the sketch exactly.  I tried several times to place the larger circle over the smaller, but I ended up liking the smaller to be foward.  The inks I used were pretty in pink, melon mambo, and bravo burgundy... accented with bravo burgundy gros grain ribbon and pretty in pink ribbon.  And, last but not least, lots of rhinestones for BLING. 

 Here is the sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches.

I hope you've enjoyed my blog posts this week ... I'm still enjoying all the challenges.  I keep finding more and more... oh the temptation!!!

Have a great weekend and, again, thanks for stopping by.

Happy Stamping with {{hugs}} from me.


  1. I'm not normally a pink person, either, but I love this combo of all these pinks!! Beautiful card!!
    Thanks so much for playing along with us this week at Tuesday Morning Sketches!!

  2. There are sooooo many challenges out there - it's really fabulous for sparking creativity! I find I keep a list at my desk to peek at & keep in mind while I'm crafting. I might not get to them all but sometimes just the right idea comes :) I LOVE the grungy stamping peeking out, and the bling, and those fab ribbons - and I'm so happy with all those challenges you came to play at Tuesday Morning Sketches!
