Clean and Simple Love in Pink and Suede

This week is just flying by! I had my beading class yesterday. As soon as I get a couple of projects finished, I'll share them with you. Some of the ladies have finished several projects already!! I only get to work on mine in the class but it's fun to learn something new.

This card is for the CAS (Wedding) and Color (Whisper White, Pretty in Pink, Soft Suede) challenges on SCS this week.

I don't need a wedding card right now so tried to make one that would also be suitable for either an engagement or anniversary. I scored the top part of the card where the ribbon is...hope you can see it. This card is 4.25" x 4.25".

I did need to "rough" up that stamp a bit. It has never given me a good clear impression so I "sanded" it down several time with a sanding block. BIG improvement. Try it if you have any stamps that don't take ink well.

Thanks for stopping by.

Supplies:
Paper- SU
Stamps - Inkadinkadoo (Michael's) and Flourishes "Flourished Words"
Accessories - Scor-Pal, Cuttlebug embossing folder, Spellbinders circle dies, Martha Stewart ribbon

Pin It!
