There's another challenge going on over at Caardvarks, and this time it's Think Pink. All you have to do to enter is create a pink card....I think this one might qualify...

As I mentioned in my post about cards for my nephew and nieces I still had to make a card for my little niece Lexi...whose proper name is actually Alexandra...hence the big A on the card. This one is a bit of a hodgepodge of elements...the chipboard A is from a Papermill alphabet I've had for ages and covered in Pink Passion CS. The base card is Pixie Pink and the side panel is Pretty in Pink with the So Swirly Wheel in the same colour ink. The glittery hearts are Pink Passion covered in Dazzling Diamonds...which is also liberally applied to the A. The ribbon is from some freebie stuff in a magazine I got back in February (Valentines Day) and the silver heart paperclip I picked up at the Scrapbook shop in Warwick when I was visiting my mum...we went halves in the packet and of course I have no idea who makes them! The flower is punched out with the five petal flower punch and the scallop punch...I even crumpled them just a little bit to give them some texture!!! The little pink button is from my mum's stash that I raided. Finally the 'Cherish' sentiment comes from Baroque Motifs and is stamped in Pink Passion.

I had heaps of fun making this one....I just hope Lexie doesn't try to eat it....she's only 17 months old and apparently the last card I sent her looked rather delicious!!!
Hope you're all having a great day,
