CAS-ual Fridays 58...PINK!!

What great ways everyone used vellum and acetate in last week's challenge...I learned so much and was really inspired by your entries!!  Congrats to the winners!!!  This week's challenge at CAS-ual Fridays is celebrating National Pink Day which was on Saturday, June 23rd!...

The challenge is to make a clean and simple card using pink!!  Easy Peasy...right?!!
This week's sponsor is Ribbon Carousel...
ribboncarousel.com
...and they are offering a $20 shopping spree to the winner!!...so think pink and join in the fun...hey...pink IS FUN!!!  Here's what I made...
I used a couple sets from Papertrey Ink(Stitiches and Swirls and Beautiful Butterflies for the sentiment).  I stamped the flower image and sentiment with Versamark and white embossed on Soft Suede colored paper.  I used my Prismacolored Pencils and colored the flowers with 2 shades of pink(Magenta and Rose) the leaves in Limepeel...a very light shade of green which shows better IRL, but didn't want to use a green that took anything away from the attention to the pink.  I used Raspberry Fizz Papertrey  Ink ribbon and some dark pink rhinestones for the small flowers. Popped up and layered on bazzill card.   SUPER simple...but have to say...I LOVE coloring with these pencils, the colors are so bold, brilliant and intense...and the act of coloring is fun!!!  A note..... make sure that your colored pencils are always sharpened for boldest color AND to easily get into the small spaces of the image without sending the color on or over the lines.
Make sure to check out the super inspiration from the CAS-ual BLOG team  AND FACEBOOK team(you'll find me here:):)!!) and make sure to get your card into the CAS-ual Fridays challenge by 12noon on Thursday...I hope to see you there:)!!  Hope you have a great week!!!  Lisa

  15. I love this card so much I spent hours searching Pinterest, PTI's blog for it after glimpsing it on a Pinterest page on which I couldn't locate it. I finally found it by Googling the name of the stamp set. Thanks for the inspiration. Did I mention I really love this card? :)
