Hello crafty friends! Welcome back for another Cards in Envy challenge! This time the challenge is “Pretty in Pink”: Create a card featuring mostly shades/colors of PINK.

(A2: Stamp: Great Impressions (A140 - Simple Life); Cut file: Silhouette Studio; Paper: Heidi Swapp (Dreamy))
I have been looking for a way to use this paper and decided to do inchies for my background. I used a fuchsia base, cut the squares and attached them. I added a simple little strip, a paper flower and the sentiment. (TIP: When making a multi layer flower, use thin paper and glue. Do not use glue dots! They add a LOT of thickness to the flower and make it inappropriate for mailing. For the center, just use a punched circle and glue it on. Dots and pearls add too much thickness too)

Now it is time for you to join in the fun! Here is the link for you, just remember your card must be A2 (4 1/4” x 5 1/2”) size and no thicker than 1/4".

Happy crafting everyone!
