Pretty in pink ....

.... Afternoon all!!  It's very cold and snowy here today - my first job this morning was to clear the overnight snow off the drive and footpaths.  It took about an hour and I think counts as my exercise for day :)  I've been into town too - had my hair done - new cut and colour and I'm very pleased with it.  Now to see if Jonathan notices!!

I've a little card to share with you this afternoon - it's only 4" square and is all shades of pink!!  I've used a few challenges to make it:


Stamps: Stampin' Up! - Cross My Heart; Waltzingmouse - Compact Family
Inks: SU - Early Espresso, Raspberry Ripple
Dies: Spellbinders - Classic Heart (S4-136) #3; Woodware Punch - Tag
Accessories: SU Card - Raspberry Ripple, Primrose Petals; SU Design Paper - Pink Pirouette; Embossing Folders - Cuttlebug - Love Language; cArt Us - Hearts; Ribbon and card base from stash





I have been quite faithful to the Freshly Made Sketch.  I started by embossing the backing paper with little hearts and highlighting them by rubbing over some Early Espresso ink.  Next I cut a tag in Raspberry Ripple and used another heart folder to emboss it, again I highlighted the embossed detail and finished off the tag by adding some brown ribbon from my stash.  I die cut a plain heart in Primrose Petal card which I attached to the card with dimensional tape.  I finished off the front of the card with my letters in a little crossword puzzle!  I stamped it twice, once in brown and again in dark pink cutting out the tiny heart and adhering it to the image.  The inside is really simple - a Raspberry Ripple mat and white card panel on which I've stamped a message - I think you can guess who this is for!!


Bye for now - keep warm and safe.
