I Think You're Lovely - Card Concept

I was on Facebook today and saw that The Card Concept has their Challenge up and I just had to join in!  This week the challenge is to make our card monochromatic pink using one of the styles of the Design Team. My style is Clean & Layered. I was inspired by the beautiful pink roses in the vase. I used green on the leaves of my flowers which I took from the background in the picture (see below).


Here is a close-up of the stamp. Unfortunately you can't see the glitter on the word "LOVELY" and the roses. I created the oval dots in the background using an embossing folder and then rubbing some Strawberry Slush ink with a sponge dauber. I stamped the center image on white cardstock and punched it out using a 1-3/4" circle punch. This stamp is from Stampin' Up - You're Lovley and it is part of their Sale-A-Bration promotion. Then I attached it with dimensional tape. I stamped the image a second time on Strawberry Slush cardstock (SSC) with the same ink. I used markers to color the image. I also embossed the bottom of the panel with hearts and then rubbed ink on it using a sponge dauber. I then mounted the panel onto another piece of SSC and finally attached that to my card base. Except for the ribbon, all products are from Stampin' Up.


Here is the inspiration for this challenge.
I hope you like what I came up with. Until the next time, Happy Paper Crafting!

  2. Your card is very lovely and when I look at it for some reason it made me think of a lolly or tea shop. Not sure why but that is the effect it had on me. Very sweet.
