Pretty In Pink

Hi everyone. At the moment, I am so time poor as I am in the midst of writing school reports. I rewarded myself by taking some time to create a card.

The card I am sharing with you is for the WMSC96.

The papers I used were part of a free collection with a craft magazine. I discovered that they were digital and I went online and bought the collection. What I love about digital papers is that you will never run out and you can always tweak them to suit your project.

As the colours are soft, I thought that the design needed to be. I also need more birthday cards, as in the next couple of months I have a lot of birthdays coming up!

 I used the large doily stamp, and began to layer from there.

I embossed some white paper to add a soft touch to the card.

I thought about using buttons, but chose a butterfly die with some small flowers. I used some liquid pearls to add a little bit of bling!


Paper: DCWV pastel, Nitwit Collections - Thimbles 'n' Threads

Ink: Colorbox Chalk Rose Coral

Stamps: Waltzingmouse Fancy Phrases and Large Doily

Other: Spellbinders Shapeabilities Fancy tags and Butterflies, Martha Stewart double edge doily lace trim punch, Cuttlebug Stylised Flowers embossing folder, Hooked on Craft flowers, Liquid Pearls petal pink.

Thanks for stopping by!
