Dear Friend

Boy, how things work out! When I went to bed last night I thought about making a pink card. I had no stamp sets or ideas in mind, I was just in a pink mood. So when I saw the color challenge this morning I about fainted. It was to use Pink Pirouette, Basic Black and White. I wanted something soft and pretty. My daughter has a birthday party for one of her best friends this weekend so I wanted a card for her. This little girl reminds me so much of Shelby and Hannah, when they actually do stand still that is....

I wanted a deep black image on the Pink Pirouette ribbon and the black ink just was not black enough. So I wheeled the image on the ribbon with versamark ink and embossed with Black Embossing powder. Since we do not have Craft ink in the In Colors I stamped with the Pink Pirouette and then used the Stamp-a-ma-jig to stamp over it with the Versamark so I could emboss with clear embossing powder. I then sponged around the edge of the image. This set is not in the catalog but is on the dormant list so it is still able to be ordered.

This was an idea I had that is funny now but was not at all fun...I wanted to use my Rub-ons since I tend to hoard them, but know I have to use them. I put the image on the cardstock and found the punch I wanted to use. I punched the section out and the punched section slid right into the head of the punch. Can you believe that???? This really steamed me since there is only one of those in that color on the sheet! So I shook and tapped and prayed and nothing. My son came in to ask me to check his Bible test and I told him what happened. I shook it to let him hear it was in there and squeezed the trigger and it flew out. So I was able to finish the card. I sponged a bit of black around the edge of the oval pink. Ipopped up the sentiment with a pop up glue dot.
