This is my very first card of 2008! - When I saw that the challenge for the Bloggers Challenge Group was a color challenge and that the colors were Pink & Brown I just knew I had to create a card for this challenge. I had the "perfect" paper sitting in my storage cabinet so I got it out and started trying to figure out how I was going to use it.
I looked through my February issue of Crafts n Things (the magazine that bought The Rubber Stamper) and I found a really cute card on page 91 by Stephanie David that I really liked so I went with her layout idea for my card.
I started with a card base of Pretty In Pink (one of my favorites as it's so soft & delicate). Then I added a layer of the Paisley print (Making Memories) and topped that with a scalloped punched border (Fiskars) of Pixie Pink and some Brown satin ribbon (American Crafts). I had purchased a Paisley Heart stamp (Hero Arts) a couple of years back and figured it would be perfect for the designer paper I used. I stamped the heart with Pixie Pink ink on Very Vanilla and cut it out. Then I stamped the "Love" sentiment (Hero Arts) with Chocolate Chip ink. I layered this on Pretty in Pink card stock with a layer of Chocolate Chip & two brown brads (Not sure who these are from anymore). I love how it turned out & hope you do as well.
Make sure you check out the other challenge members blogs to see their work. I am off to do that myself! It's good to be back again. Happy 2008 to everyone!
