Think Pink


This was for today's Color Challenge on SCS, Think Pink. I wanted to use my Palette O'Prints again! I just LOVE the pink in the set. It's Rose Red, a color I hardly ever use. I haven't used my Think Big set in a while either, so I thought I'd combine that with Doodle This. I thought it worked well to have the "wish" as the flower center. Once I stamped "big" on the patterned paper, I thought it needed a little something to stand out, so I took my white gel pen and outlined the left sides of the letters. I think it gave it just the right amount of whatever it needed to stand out a little more. I'm really happy with how it turned out. The best part about it is that I was in a hurry because we have to get out the door, and everything came together in the first try. Usually I have to fiddle around with things until I get the card the way I like it. Don't you LOVE when it just comes together quickly? Especially when you're in a hurry? It is a gorgeous day here today, which is a nice surprise because it was supposed to thunderstorm. Maybe the storms are coming later? Well, I'm going to enjoy it while it's nice! Thanks for visiting today and have a wonderful day! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Doodle This, Think Big; Ink- Basic Black, Rose Red; Paper- Palette O'Prints, Basic Black, Whisper White; Accessories- Offray ribbon, white gel pen, circle punch, hole punch, slit punch, stickles.

Hi Charmaine!! LOVE this card sooo much :) Your white outlining really bakes the big pop out! This paper is to die for. I can't wait to get some. Does it have to be just demos, or can anyone get them? I'll go check that out. :)
