Shades Of Pink

As promised, here is a sneak peek at one of the samples for my upcoming show on Create and Craft on Monday.  This is one of my favourite ones because even if you are not a pink person, it just seems so happy, it makes you want to smile I think.  This sample is also incredibly easy as  the flowers are simply stamped on to three different shades of pink card, embossed with white powder, cut out (I said easy, not fast) and layered up with buttons glued to the centres.  Add a lovely sentiment and a big bow (I do love my ribbon) and you have yourself a card.  The stamp sets that I am using on Mondays show are called the Button Florals designed by Sam Poole.  These stamp sets are a real delight to play with too.  I will try to get a few more samples up on the blog between now and Monday.  What do you think of this one?  All for now, Sue x

Wow, fab card, I love every element. I want to say how much I like something specifically, but I can't because I can't agree that any one element is my favourite. This is one card where I just have to say, "What's not to love!"

Great card Sue. Love the way the black polkadot sets off the reds. The bow is brilliant - how do you make them? Looking forward to the show.
Best wishes
