GOOD AFTERNOON EVERYONE! I got a late start on posting today’s project. I had to dash off to the dealership because the service light came on in the car. Luckily it was just a warning that it was time for an oil change and some other mileage related maintenance. I squeezed in a little shopping and a lunch out before heading back home and finishing up my card.
Today’s card is my entry for Honey Bee Stamps Buzzworthy Challenge #27. In case you couldn’t guess, the theme is pink! At first, I was tempted to throw everything pink in my stash at this card – inks, embossing powder, cardstock, embellishments, Copics, embellishment mousse – but decided to dial back my Barbie pink enthusiasm and just make a few choice selections!
I had some soft pink cardstock in my stash so I used it as a neutral background and built from there. I knew that I would use the Spring Blossoms stamp set so I let the flowers take front and center and made everything else (i.e. stencil, sentiments and embellishments) complement the flowers rather than compete with them.
Hope you got some inspiration. Thanks for stopping by and I’ll see you again soon!
