Hot Pink cards

Hello there!  How about a dose of hot pink cards to brighten up your day?

The first card features a bouquet of sweet pea flowers from Hero Arts 'Creative Vases & Summer Flowers' set (sentiment comes from that set too).

I have to say I'm proud of myself for centering the stamps well on the matching die cuts!  That sure takes practice.

Incidentally, the top photo doesn't best represent the actual colors...but these detail shots look more true-to-life.

The bottom of the card has a thick strip of hot pink glittered cardstock.  Whoo!  There's also a strip of white pom pom trim to soften things up.

The next card is a literal (visual) translation of my eldest daughter's room, complete with our cat, Cristabel, sitting on the bed.  My daughter's bedroom walls are hot pink (yes, that is right!) and her bed comforter is a deep plum with a tone on tone floral pattern.  I found just the right supplies to recreate this scene.  The cat die is from Papertrey Ink 'Cat's Meow', cut with black cardstock AND a backing of black craft foam.  I cut a tiny pale pink nose, and added googly eyes and a tiny white mouth.

The last card is not quite as intense of a pink as the cards above.  I used a Valentine's Day paper from Authentique as the backdrop for my donut scene.  I imagined a square white lacy-edged placemat with a donut on it and a sprinkling of 'sugar' (clear sparkling sequins).

I'm so glad you came by today to share the pink-ness!  Have a great day, and God bless you!

That's a very pretty and sweet little sweet pea bouquet! I must start buying the matching dies more often. It gives such a nice, finished look. More so than fussy cutting, I think. Love that hot pink glitter border! You know I love the Cristabel look alike, and such sweet fun on your donut card!
