Pale Pink Just for You

Hi friends!  Today I'm sharing this sweet pink card with you. I created it as a generic card for any occasion, so this can be used as a birthday card, a Valentine card, a Mother's Day card, a thank you card, anything you can think of!

The products from Classy Cards 'n Such that I've used on this card are:

Sophie's Heart Mini Doily die - Cheery Lynn Designs (LOVE these smaller doilies!!)
Fanciful Flourish die - Cheery Lynn Designs
Mini Fanciful Flourish die - Cheery Lynn Designs
Tropical Flourish die - Cheery Lynn Designs
Judy's Blooms dies - Cheery Lynn Designs
Love Letters 6x6 paper pad
Anytime Sentiments stamp set - Impression Obsession

My dark brown card base is a regular A2 size (11" x 4.25" folded in half). I cut one of the papers from the Love Letters pad and adhered that to the card base. I then cut two smaller layers from the same Love Letters pad and matted them with the dark brown cardstock. Next I cut out the three flourishes from vanilla and olive cardstocks and arranged them on the card.

The sentiment was stamped with dark brown ink onto vanilla cardstock and I cut a notch on the left side. I matted this with dark brown cardstock and adhered this near the bottom of my card. I die cut the Sophie's Heart Mini Doily from dark brown cardstock and adhered that over the flourishes. I then die cut the Judy's Blooms flowers, painted them with shimmery Creative Inspirations paint (Pink Highlights and Tutu Pink), and adhered them together with a brad in the center. You can see the sweet shimmer in the picture below.  I carefully glued my flower in the center of the mini doily and fluffed up the petals.

I love this card! These pretty pinks with the gorgeous doily and those flourishes - I don't think I could give this away just yet. I think I'll have to admire this in my studio for a few months first. :-)
