Another Card for Pink Week

I feel so bad because I told my friend Holly that I would definitely play along with her Pink Week challenge and this week just hasnt cooperated with me. I have physical therapy 3x a week, then have to come home, do household chores, the kids come home from school, the husband comes home, we eat, I go to work and on and on it goes. I know that most of you out there know what I mean! We need more hours in the day.

I dont have physical therapy on Thursdays so today I spent my afternoon doing nothing but stamping and got 2 cards finished! A card for Pink Week was at the top of my list and I also wanted to be able to play along with this weeks sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches so I combined the 2 challenges for this card.

I used some retired DSP, Candy Lane, and brought in some Close To Cocoa to balance out the pink. The stamp set Strength and Hope went along perfectly with this sketch!

This card will be going to my step mom, a breast cancer survivor!

Supplies used(all supplies SU unless otherwise noted):
Stamps: Strength and Hope
Paper: Pink Pirouette, Close to Cocoa, Very Vanilla, Rose Red, Candy Lane DSP
Ink: Regal Rose
Accessories: Beautiful Wings Embosslits, Scallop Edge Border Punch, Paper Piercing Tool, 1 3/4" Scallop Circle Punch, dimensionals, pearls


  1. Love all of the pinks with that touch of cocoa! So pretty! And yes Fraser Firs are my favorite too! They are such a beautiful tree!

  2. Perfect card for both challenges! I'm sure your mother will think it is really special. Glad you joined us this week at Freshly Made Sketches.

  3. Such an elegant card, love your colour combo.xxxx

  4. Well Lisa I totally agree that we need more hours in the day. Either that or we need to do less in the hours that we've got! I'm so glad you had time to fit our Freshly Made Sketch into your busy day. I love your butterflies!

  5. Oh wow Lisa! You nailed the fresh feel. Love the mix of colours and the clean lines. Thanks for playing along at Freshly Made Sketches!
