Pearly Pinks

Today's Color Challenge on SCS was perfect for me as I am preparing for two Valentine stamping days. The colors: Pretty in Pink, Melon Mambo, and Cherry Cobbler. I would never have put the melon and cherry in the same card...but hey, that's why these are challenges!

I used I {Heart} Hearts to make my own dp with the two lighter colors stamped on whisper white. I decided that rounding the corners would add just a touch of detail. My scallop oval punch and modern label punch were already out on my messy table, so why not pull out Teeny Tiny Wishes for the perfect sentiment? I stamped it in cherry cobbler and used my melon mambo marker to outline it. The Subtles Pattern Paper Stack provided a nice polka dot to coordinate with one of the stamped images. Satin ribbon and basic pearl jewels finish with a soft feminine look.

  3. Super Cute! That base color is darling and your stamps are just too cute!

  4. Gorgeous! I love your stamped heart background and focus on the sentiment.
