Well, it's me again with another pink card! I think pink is my new summer color - haha! We have another sketch for ODBD that just seemed to work well with this Tulip Corner that I fussy cut and rearranged. I stamped my own background paper with Chalkboard Vine Background, added the Pennant Swag die under an embossed layer, and then placed my tulip bouquet over one of the Antique Labels & Border dies. I did some sponging, added some pearls, and "tied" my bouquet together with a sentiment from Rose Bouquet. Thanks for taking a "look-see," and I hope you like it!

Cheryl, you make the most beautiful cards!!! :) This delicate pink card just took my breath away!!! I don't like to fussy cut, but some of my best cards have had fussy cutting and this is a great example of how fussy cutting really adds a wonderful elegance to an already beautiful card. Your coloring--lovely, your choice of DP just is WONDERFUL, I am absolutely moved by the beauty of your card!
Plus I LOVE ODBD, someday I will actually do a challenge and would love it if it was a faith-based one... :)
This is just a treasure, Cheryl!!! Into my favorites it goes, of course. :)

Sometimes I think I could make a pink card every day! I LOVE your pink cards....Your out of the box looking technique with your tulips is just stunning! Your pennent dies across the bottom is such a brilliant idea and I love how you have used them to anchor your image. The back ground stamp is an excellent choice andit is on my wish list! It is just SUCH a pretty pattern. Your sponging inside your die cut gives the softest breath of pink and highlights your image to perfection. LOVE LOVE LOVE this card! Faved and pinned...

This is really an eye-catching card. The pink is lovely and your tulips are colored to match perfectly. I am always looking for creative ways to use my label dies and this is a great inspiration - thank you!
