2sketches4you#23, Use It #3, Creative Card Crew (using texture), Secret Crafters (stitching)

Polka dots and roses day....I've been in the mood to create pinkish cards that are really sweet and girly. It must be the Spring feeling in the air....

I hope you enjoy this challenge....scroll down if you're interested in more details.

How about a x4 challenge card today!? I started out with the 2sketches4you sketch (which I love).....from there it evolved into this.....This sweetly pink number has minimal layers and embellishments. The flower embellishment was simply some ruffled satin trim and lace I had bought for around a buck a yard. I simply made them into a circle and taped the ends together. The paper flower pin on top is a $ tree find. There is around a dozen in each pack. They're adorable!! The chipboard glitter letters are some I've had for a couple years. I had not even used them one time until this week.

For the Use It challenge we were to use any scraps, 2 types of ribbon and a punch. The Polka dotted PP is a scrap piece. The 2 types of ribbon used (pink grosgrain and cream sheer ribbon).
The punch I used was a corner rounder.

The third challenge is from Creative Card Crew. Using Texture. The flower, paint, lace trim and chipboard letters are my textured elements.
Lastly, at Secret Crafters....the challenge is to use stitching....which I love and do often.

I hope you all are having a wonderful day!! The sun is shining so sweetly today! That alone is a reason to smile after a long winter!! I also have some exciting news to share next week!!
