Pink and Grey

Good morning all.

We had a bright and beautiful one yesterday again. Lots of little jobs done and a casserole in the oven then I had some time to craft.

Another Anniversary card to share today. The ladies over at Less is More are celebrating their 4th Anniversary...can you believe it? Congratulations to you all, hope you have many more :)
The challenge is a colour one of pink and grey.

Pink base card matted with a grey layer on foam tape then a white. Background stamp is from Unity Stamps, stamped with tattered rose DI. Die is from Memory Box.....cut twice, once with pink card and once with a double layer of grey card so I ended with a solid die cut to piece the other two back onto. This made the die very sturdy and gave it some dimension on the card without using foam pads.
At this point I realised how lacking I was in Anniversary stamps/dies...with love was a magazine freebie and Happy Anniversary is from a decoupage stamp set from Imagination Crafts. A few sequins from Pretty Pink Posh were added to finish off.

Challenges entered:
Less is More - pink and grey
Stamplorations - stamps and hearts
Simon says Stamp - pink and red

  3. Beautiful crd, Carol, I love those Memory Box hearts. It looks very classy. Sorry, I haven't been around to visit for a long while. My eye problem is curtailing all my crafting, commenting, etc and I have to dive in for a few minutes at a time when my eyes behave. It's exhausting. Hazel x

  14. It's a lovely color combo, and I really like how you did the inlay of the dies. Much more dimension than just having the one layer - and adding the 2 colors looks most stunning. Well done. TFS & Hugs
