A Flourishes Celebration- Silke’s Pink Challenge

It is Celebration Time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenges!    The week of February 2-8, 2010 marks Flourishes Timeless Tuesday’s ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY!

I was absolutely thrilled to be invited to join in their celebrations by making sample cards for the Design Team challenges!!! I hope you enjoy them and they help inspire you to join in the fun too!!  There are six different challenges being posted and I have samples for three, so hold on to your crafting chair, you’re in for a treat!! There will be lots of amazing prizes at the Flourishes blog!

Here’s my second sample card, this one is  for Silke’s “think pink” challenge (FTTC52D)! Please check out the Flourishes Anniversary Celebration post to find out how to play along!

I thought right away of the “Think Pink” set for this challenge, and as I need more breast cancer awareness cards it was perfect!

I stamped the dress in Versamark on glossy paper and embossed it with Super Fine detail embossing powder (Ranger).   I sponged over it with Pretty in Pink ink, defining the oval edges a little darker than the rest.  The ribbon is cut out and “tied” on with a Tim Holtz mini pin.  The pink dps is Basic Grey Urban Prairie papers.  The pearls are the finishing touch for the dress as well as the card.  So what do you think? Is there enough pink? 🙂

Stop by in 15 minutes for my final Flourishes challenge sample!  I can’t wait to show it to you!!

Thanks for stopping by!

    Oh my – I can never use those pins on cards. I have a bunch of them for years – but this looks great. I love the single little pearl on the dress, too.
