Pink Cards

Just a few cards I made this weekend with pink in!
This first is for Waltzing Mouse Sketch Challenge #50 and Color Throwdown's Challenge #144 to use Pumpkin Pie, Melon Mambo and Certainly Celery. I really wanted to use butterflies on this card, but I don't have a set from Waltzing Mouse with butterflies in so had to use a PTI one. The sentiment part is all WM Stamps though.


Stamps: Butterfly Dreams from PTI, Say It With Style, Holiday Labels No. 14 both from Waltzing Mouse Stamps

Papers: Certainly Celery, melon Mambo, Sweet & Sour DSP all from SU, Stampers Select White from PTI

Inks: Certainly Celery, Melon Mambo, Pumpkin Pie all from SU

Accessories: Certainly Celery Ribbon from SU, Labels #14 Nestabilities, Medium Butterfly Die, Signature Series: Butterfly Die both from PTI, Buttons and Embroidery Thread from stash

My next one is for CR84FN31 to use light pink, mid green and neutral and for old Mojo #81. I have now finally completed all the old mojo sketches! YAY!!! On to the old Walzting Mouse ones next! This is the inspiration piccy from CR84FN.

And this is my card for it:


Stamps: Think Big Favorites #2 from PTI

Papers: Certainly Celery, Pretty in Pink, Tea Party DSP (retired) all from SU, Stampers Select White from PTI

Inks: Certainly Celery from SU

Accessories: Pretty in Pink Grosgrain Ribbon, 5 Petal Flower Punch, 1/2" Circle Punch all from SU, White Buttons from Papermania

My next one is for Just Magnolia's Challenge #110 to use lace with the anything goes monthly challenge, Stampin' Royalty's Challenge #74 to use Wild Wasabi, Melon Mambo and Daffodil Delight and for Papertake Weekly's Sketch #56.


Stamps: Explore Tilda from Magnolia

Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics

Accessories: Daffodil Delight Satin Ribbon from SU, Lace from Cuddly Buddly, Paper Roses from MIC

And my final pink card was for my goddaughter's 3rd birthday this week. This one is for Viva La Verve's Sketch #1 for June, Play Date Cafe's Challenge #84 to use pink, green and white and for Farm Fresh Friday's Challenge Fairytale Fun.
