More thinking PINK

Last night I sat down and gave my mojo a good long talking to...then I got out a bunch of stuff and spread it all over my desk.....looked at it for a fairly long time....then I came up with this...As well as this one, I also made a couple of other cards for challenges set for the team by it actually ended up being a rather productive night! This card not only qualifies for the 'Think Pink' challenge over at Caardvarks, but it also fits the challenge set by my darling sister and upline, Madonna, to use Jen del Munro's latest sketch.

I used Pixie Pink for the base and stamped it all over with the itty bitty flowers from "Sprinkles" in Regal Rose. The two front panels are Basic Black and Pink Passion. The top panel is stamped, again in Regal Rose, with the retired "French Script" BG. The Celebrate sentiment is from the "Cherished Memories" rub ons and the birdie is from some Kaiser rub ons that I got at Paddy's Market in the city....I couldn't resist them...maybe Lauren's birdie fetish is rubbing off on me!

The little pink flower brads are Papermill and the ribbon...well it's Pink Passion grosgrain. But SU doesn't have PP grosgrain I hear you say....well no they don't, but they do have white and I have the PP marker...and viola, Pink Passion ribbon. I've seen this done on a number of different blogs and it's such a great idea...if you have heaps of white ribbon and all the markers, well you can have ribbon any colour you like to perfectly match your project!

So, I think my mojo and I now have a very clear understanding of what is is not to go leaving me on a whim and must always be there for me when I need it! Obviously it listened cause I am loving this card...I did intend to send it off as a birthday card to one of my Diva friends....but I'm thinking it may need to stay and go up on the wall for a while....just so I can admire it a bit longer.

I will post the other cards tomorrow...or later...depending on how much work I get done today....they're pretty cute too, but they're purple and that doesn't fit with the 'Think Pink' thing....they really should do a purple challenge...I'd blitz that!

Have a fabulous day
