blog logo
Well I really am having a bit of a hard time telling everyone that pink Pink stinks…. when I have made Several Pink cards lately, but in my defence they are for friends that LOVEEEEEEEEEEEEEE blinking pink!
At Totally Gorjuss this week the challenge is KISS to Keep It Simple,
 Hmmmmm me and C&S cards yup! right ok!
sharp intake of breath! always a difficult one not to put LOADS of embellishments and pretty papers and and and and…..
We are sponsored by LOTV

Hmmmmmm!!! OK! KEEP IT SIMPLE…. Here goes…

I have used this Cuteeeeee Penny Black Puppy isn't he cute! I have had him for a long time, along with quite a few tucked away and forgotten… I know it sounds mad… But we all tuck them in a draw or wherever you store them and some how forget what you have got… SO I have made a plan to get them out use them more!   
I have coloured him with distress inks and highlighted with white gelly and black glaze pens, and glossy accents on his nose and the rose! The stitching is also in white gelly pen, Distress the edges very lightly and blended the main image a little too! some brown ribbon and a rose that’s it!

  3. the post! Pink is not my favorite, but I'm really amazed at what some crafters do with it and how they combine it with some really great colors.
    Wonderful card Samantha!!!!
    But seriously, why can't more people dig purple? It's a cool color too.

  5. lovely card, thanks for joining the CBN challenge xx

  6. So pretty and I love the colour combination and the stitching detail too, I love pink cards especially when it's mixed with brown xxxxx sue

  7. Cute card Samantha. I personally like pink. I wear pink, I have got lots of other stuff that's pink but have never actually thought of making any crafting projects in pink. On the other hand I do not like certain shade of red. I would never wear it or had that shade of red in my house but I love using it in paper crafting!
