I created this card to go along with the gift for a wedding my family attended two weekends ago.  My inspiration came from the invitation we received in the mail, but the resulting card is much less “simple” than the bride and groom’s invite was.  Despite this goof-up on my end, I do really like the way this turned out, especially once we put it on display on top of the gift package! 

Thank you so much for stopping by!  As always, if you would kindly leave me a link back to your blog or card gallery, I would love to visit and leave you feedback in return!

Have a blessed day,

Paper: Pretty In Pink, Basic Black, Whisper White
Ink: Pretty in Pink (heart shape), Going Grey (sponging on pink panel)
Accessories: Black Check ribbon
Techniques: Sponging, slot punch, fiskars embossing template

I created this card as part of the stack of cards I am sending in for CFC02 Cards for a Cause: Chemo Angels. I was happy to see yesterday that the color challenge (CC188 B

CF02 CC188 What Cancer Cannot Do

asic Pirouettes – Pretty In Pink, Basic Black, Whisper White) incorporates a color scheme I was already considering to go with this quote I found on the web (and printed on white cardstock).

CF02 CC188 What Cancer Cannot Do

I used my slit punch to punch out the “ticket corners” on various parts of the card. The larger pink panel is embossed (using a Fiskars brand embossing template), and I sponged the corners of it with going gray ink as I tried one first with basic black but it turned out looking too purple.

I made four of these cards and six of another style for CF02 and I hope they all bring a little joy into the lives of their recipients!
