Pretty in Pinks

You know you spend a lot of time with someone when they have an influence over your color choices.  I love blue, Heather loves pink and I find myself making more cards using pink card stock and inks than I ever did before I started hanging out with her.  Too funny!  As you can see, my card has blossomed with mostly pink!

Card Stock:  blushing Bride, Rose Red and Early Espresso (Stampin' Up!), Maggie Holmes Paper Pad (Crate Paper); Accessories & Tools:  1-3/4" Scallop Circle Punch, 3/16" Corner Punch, 7/8" Scallop Circle Punch, 1/8" Silver Mini Brad and Linen Thread (Stampin' Up!), Silver Key

For this one, I chose not to use a sentiment since I'm not sure what it will be used for, birthday, anniversary, thinking of you or thank you.  I can always add that at a later time.

I played along with Seize the Sketch, so be sure to head on over for some more inspiration.  Just click on the image below.

Thanks for stopping in at the Coffee Pot Stamping Cafe,



  1. Pretty card! Great idea to leave the sentiment for later!
    Thanks for joining us at Seize the Sketch!

  2. I love your pretty pink card, Marsha. I like to leave a good bit of my cards without sentiments, so I can use them later. :)

  3. So pretty!! Love the softness of the pink and the pattern papers!!

  4. I have a stamping friend who would say that means she's a BAD influence :) lol! I happen to love the dusky pinks you've used here - and that brick pattern!

  5. You are right - this is SO pretty in pink!! I like the punched flowers and that you didn't put a sentiment on it yet. Lovely card.
