Think Pink – 2 Pink cards

Today – I am feeling PINK!!

Both cards I have created for challenges feature Pink and MORE Pink!!

Card # 1 –


I made it using the Minc. I won from an awesome artist/blogger friend (and someone I really admire) named Payel of BeauMonde Designs – it came with some awesome die cuts and I used those with the pink foil that came in the kit!!

I think the pink and the bike and the sparkle of the foil are so perfect for this challenge:

Stampin’ RoyaltyChallenge # 286

July Pic Inspiration

Card # 2 –


Made with a My Favorite Things stamp set!!

Stamped the adorable Bee girl with the  Versafine – Onyx Black  inkpad and used Clear ultra fine embossing powder.

Colored image in with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush pens and a Zig Detailer Watercolor brush!

Used a Scallop punch from SU! to add a detail to the border and the button is paper with an embroidery floss bow!

Linking up to this challenge –

My Favorite Things card challenge – Wednesday Sketch Challenge # 237


I opted to keep my image panel straight!! And added the scallop border to compensate for the lack of tilt!!

Have a BEAUTIFUL day!!

I made it using the Minc. I won from an awesome artist/blogger friend (and someone I really admire) named Payel of BeauMonde Designs

Here it is:


I used gold foil in my Minc with one of the diecuts that comes with it and this is what I came up with!! Embossed background is swirls – not sure who it is by! A Black circle gives the butterfly with the golden wings a place to rest!!

I am linking this card up to the following challenges:
