Pink Love

Good morning everyone. Here is wishing everyone a fabulous Sunday. I am back with a quick post on a card I made yesterday. I was browsing through Pinterest when this sketch caught my fancy. I am not really a sketch person for somehow I can never follow the sketch ( I end up adding or missing elements from the original sketch, LOL). I can proudly say I did manage to do and I am so chuffed about it.

It is my favourite color combo card-PINK and BLACK. Yes, I truly believe when you cannot get a color combo going, go for pink and black, it solves everything. I do not have the sketch saved me as I had roughly drawn it on the paper for reference. Pinterest is a life saver when you want to make cards just for fun. go pick a sketch from the zillion available and get cracking. I did break my head for over 4 hours on this one because I could not get my embellishment placement in place.

Here goes,

Standing: front view

side view

close up:heat embossed sentiment

This was a fun card to come up with. I tried so many color combinations before of course going to my beloved pink. Althought I am NOT a pink person, I love it on my cards. This is quite a big card- 5"x7". Although it is right side heavy ( like the sketch demanded, I love the blank spaces on the left side. It balances out in my eyes)
