Thinkin' Pink

I needed to make a card for my little cousin who turns 7 next week, and she's a real girlie-girl (like my daughter in that respect).

So I thought I'd use the Sketch and Stash sketch (using papers that are new to my stash as they were also part of my TT candy).

And again I went for the monotone challenge from Crafter's Companion, this time using their own Popcorn Bear stamp too. So this one is all pink (couldn't help the little bits of white) - the gems are also pink although they seem to look red in this pic. Popcorn has been coloured with two shades of pink watercolour pencils and his patches and blanket are paper-pieced.

This card will also be entered into the new Fab'n'Funky challenge, which is to incorporate fancy edges - not sure how easily they can be seen, but I used my scalloped edged scissors around the layers beneath the image and the sentiment and along the bottom edge of the patterned strip. I love all my fancy-edged scissors, but the scallop one is my fave at the moment (I'm sure I'll move on to a different one in a week or so lol; I'm so fickle - but then I have 10 pairs to choose from!)

And shock, horror! No Distress Inks on this one!!

That's all for today.
Take care and happy crafting,
Charli xx
