Crafty Secrets Challenge

This week's Crafty Secrets Forum Challenge over on SCS is hosted by Pammyjo and she has asked us to "Think Pink" ... that's right, use the color PINK in your creation.

I chose this adorable image from the Crafty Secrets "Girlfriends" booklet.  My base card is Whisper White and I have used Bazzill green cardstock and the designer paper came from The Stamp Pad and has no mfg. identifier on it. 

I've used the Martha Stewart heart punch along the edge then ran Michael's pink dotted swiss ribbon through the hearts and tied a bow in the middle. I also used an American Crafts gold glitter pen to accent the oval frame.  Kaiser half pearls were used down the side and to accent around the main image.  The strip left from the heart punched border was used to decorate the envelope flap.

The "journaling" portion of this image was also used for the inside sentiment.  The sentiment is from the Stampin' Up "In My Thoughts" stamp set.  (click on the inset for a larger view)
