Pink, Pink, Pink...

I guess you can say that I'm in a PINK groove lately.  Maybe it's because Valentine's day is around the corner and there are stamping challenges up the wazoo that call for pink...Well, whatever the reason, it's ok with me 'cuz I love it.  Today I'm sharing this card I created for Heartfelt Creations weekly blog.  Stop over there to see ALL the designer creations and you might even see a sneaky peek of next month's release...I'm sure you'll drool. 

This card took me forever to make.  Not because it was a lot of work, but because I sat down with absolutely no idea what I was going to do.  I had no color inspiration, no particular stamps in mind, no layout or sketch to draw from...just sat down at my desk, pulled some uninked stamps and got to work.  I started out by stamping the sentiment in red.  I didn't much care for that so I decided to use some brand new uninked stamps using pink...I LOVED how it looked.  It's kinda whispy and soft...So I distressed it a bit to make it a little more whispy. 

After the stamped panel was done and sewn (I love brown thread!), I just started adding more details.  Finally I ended up with this layout and I stuck with it.  Not sure that it's my most favorite layout or card, but oh well, it's done!
