Hello Gorgeous

Thursday, October 22, 2015

Just popping in to share a card I made just for the sake of playing with some new goodies.  Enjoy!
I started this card by anchoring a couple of patterned papers, onto the White, cardstock, card face, with bright-pink-threaded, straight, machine stitches and stamping their bottom left corner, in Jet Black ink, with the "Hello GORGEOUS" sentiment.
I then wrapped their connection with a length of pink, satin ribbon; which I tied, in a bow, near the left edge of the card face and embellished with a pink button, laced with a white, string bow.
My shaker was created from die-cut layers of Rose Red and clear cardstocks, as well as watercolor paper, which was watercolored in shades of Pretty in Pink, Melon Mambo, and Rose Red inks.  It was then filled with Pink Blush and Sweet{heart} Mix floral sequins and silver seed beads, before being adhered, with foam tape, just to the right of the embellished bow.  The peonies and their pot were black-embossed on watercolor paper; watercolored in shades of Pretty in Pink, Melon Mambo, Rose Red, Wild Wasabi, Garden Green, and Basic Grey inks; hand-cut out; and adhered, in their respective positions, with foam tape.
Inspiration for this card came from Avery Elle's Challenge #29: Think Pink.
Thanks so much for humbling me with a visit!  Have a blessed day!
