Pink and Girlie.....

that's the request I had from Yvonne for a card for another friend's birthday...... Tracey LOVES pink.  I decided to add a bit of black as well...... and try an easel card....


Birthday Easel card (open)

The front uses a Spellbinders Die ~ Parisian Accents ~ It's a 8" long die and I used my long plates to cut it.  The birdcage and bird are a Tim Holtz die.  I added the rose and the organza bow to give it a girlie look.   I added some pink gems to the bottom of the cage and on the card.   For the inside, I used another row of the Parisian accents and made my stopper with a Hero Arts label stamp which I cut out and added with dimensional dots.   I think this certainly covers the request adequately....

Now for a surgery update... got a call today.... I've been bumped up the list... now Thurs 1st Sept.  So only a week and a bit wait now.... Pleased about that.

Thanks for visiting....

Dawn

Pink and black are beautiful colors together - kinda' retro in feeling to me. Love the border die; may have to get that one.

Will be thinking of you next week and wish you all the best with the surgery, Dawn!

Hello Dawn
Pink is the colour that makes one happy and is seen as sweet,and by choosing a watered down pink you have added a little romanticism, it is viewed as tender and feminine.
On the other side of the scale is the powerful classic Black, it is seen as sophisticated and elegant, the combination works so well and your card is just perfect.
