The Paper Variety {pink} Challenge #16!!

This week, the challenge at The Paper Variety is to use the color pink! Pink w/white, pink w/black, pink w/white and/or black. Just show us a pink paper project!! :)

{Pink is one of my very favorite colors - and I don't care that Clinton says that women over 30 should not wear pink!}

Our FABULOUS prize - 2 sets of stamps - is being sponsored by My Pink Stamper!I created a lo using bake sale photos from a combination bake/garage sale my Relay for Life team had last spring. {We raised over 600 bucks for the American Cancer Society at this event alone - we were psyched about that total!}

I needed to use this "Seasoned with Love" pp, by Norma Kennedy. I so love the little oven!!

{You can find this mini paper pad here.}

{relay $ale}

I started with pink bazzill, a bit of Melissa Frances pp, and FP pink pp for the scalloped punched edges. I placed some doilies about the lo, and stitched on top. The flowers, hearts & buttons are all from my stash - MM, FP, buttons galore. Pink letter stickers are AC thickers, pink ribbon is Offray.

Once I was done with the lo, I didn't want to put away all of my pink pretties...so, I made a card. Materials include AC white base, pink bazzill, MM pink hearts, misc. button & bling, Unity Stamp w/white stampendous embossing powder, AC heart ribbon, and machine stitching. {The bling on ribbon is by Darice - each gem was placed using an eyebrow tweezer. I carefully dipped the bottom of the gem into some glossy accents and then applied to ribbon.}

{hello dear friend}

this is a very pretty card patti-and I agree with your comment on my blog your layout and ribbon treatment are similar to mine-so we were thinking alike for these cards
