Pretty in Pink!!

Thursday, 19 March 2009
Not sure why but I've been adamant today that it's Friday and that tomorrow is the weekend!! It's going to be disappointing tomorrow when my alarm goes off at 5:50am!
Anyway, I've two cards to show you today. Both have been requests from colleagues/friends.

For the first one, the only brief I had was it had to be pink and girly. I immediately thought of Tilda with Rose from the Pink Collection. She has been stamped and coloured in with Copics before being mounted onto pink cs. I added some stickles glitter glue to her wings, but I don't think it shows up in the photo. The base is two shades of Core-dinations cardstock. The lighter shade has been partially embossed with the swiss dots folder. I have then used some pink satin ribbon and a heart slider to hide the divide. The sentiment is from Woodware and has been cute out using my new tag nestabilities. The "25 Today" has been cut out using the Girls are Weird alphabet font.




What do you think, is it pink and girly enough??

For the second card, I decided to use an old Friday Sketchers sketch. I don't participate in this challenge, but I had seen it used on a number of blogs and made a mental note to try it out. I used my new Penny Black Gift's For You stamp which has been watercoloured and cut out using oval nestabilities. The base is pink cs with a section of DB Polka Dot paper. The second section is pearlised card that has again been embossed using the swiss dots folder. More pink satin ribbon has been used to hide the joins. The flowers are Prima and the brads are from my stash. It has been finished off with a Craftwork Cards sentiment.

I have been really low in confidence the last week or so on everything, not just my cards. I think that incident at work has affected me more than I've realised. I was not happy at all last night when trying to make a card and even contemplated giving up card making altogether! My confidence isn't the greatest at the best of times. I'm always being told off for not having enough faith in myself when everyone else does, but it does just seem to be even worse than normal at the moment.

Anyway, thank you for stopping by and for any comments you may leave, they really are appreciated.
