I ♥ pink & aqua....

....they are some of my very favorite colors! I have a few cards to share with you today that use these colors.  So, let's get started.

This first card is for Challenge 13 at the Everything But The Kitchen Sink blog.  And it has pink & aqua mixed with kraft....an even better color combo!  Yum!
 "Live & Love" supplies: 
Cardstock: Bazzill Basics
Paper: K & Company
Stamps/Ribbon: Renaissance by Design (Darling Damask & Simply Sentiments sets)
Ink: Clearsnap (Pigment: mint, chestnut) 
Jewels: Doodlebug Designs
Flowers: Zva Creative & craft supply
Corner Rounder: EK Success

Instructions:  Fold kraft paper in half to make card base, and round the bottom corners.  Round the bottom corners of a pink heart paper block, and adhere to the bottom of the card.  Punch a scalloped border to aqua striped paper, and adhere to the top of the pink heart paper.  Stamp the damask pattern and the sentiment to a white cardstock block.  Round the top corners and adhere to the front of the card.  Tie ribbon around the seam, and top with 3 paper flowers.  Accent the top of the card with three pink jewels. 

This next one is based on the Sunday Sketch at 365 cards, and on challenge 25 at the Play Date Cafe (use black & white with a splash of color).  I love how this one turned out with just the little splash of aqua in places!
 "Just For You" supplies: 
Cardstock: Bazzill Basics
Stamps: Renaissance By Design (Darling Damask set) 
Ink: Clearsnap (Pigment: black, turquoise)
Ribbon: Offray
Jewels/Twine: Darice Inc. 
Button: Doodlebug Designs

Instructions:  Fold black cardstock in half to make card base.  Stamp the damask design to the left side of a white cardstock block.  Tie ribbon around the middle, and attach a button to the bow with twine.  Adhere the entire block to the front of the card, and accent the two black damasks with a jewel.  Stamp the sentiment directly below the bow. 

And one last little card that has a whole lotta pink and white.  This one is based on Sweet Sunday Sketch 65!
 "Thank You" supplies: 
Cardstock: Bazzill Basics
Paper: My Mind's Eye
Stamps: Renaissance by Design (Enjoy Life & Strictly Sentiments set) 
Ink: Clearsnap (Chalk: rose coral)

Corner Rounder: EK Success
Embossing Machine: Cuttlebug by Provo Craft
Embossing Folder: Victoria by Provo Craft

Instructions:  Fold white cardstock in half to make card base, and round the bottom corners.  Emboss the front using a Cuttlebug and Victoria embossing folder.  Round the bottom corners of a pink dot paper block, and adhere to the bottom of the card.  Stamp the sentiment to a white cardstock block.  Round the top corners and adhere to the left side of the card.  Adhere three pink jewels directly below the sentiment.  Tie ribbon around the bottom of the card, and add a felt flower to the left side of the bow.  Stamp the butterfly on white cardstock and cut out.  Adhere to the felt flower, and accent with clear jewels. 

Well, that is all I have for you today.  I have some stuff to do, so I am going to head out.  Have a great day! ♥♥♥ 

Until later,
