A Girly Card

This is not a typical card for me. Normally, when I make it "pretty", I add a bit of snark. Not today! Today this card is girly, through and through!

(GAH! You can cut that sweet with a butter knife.) At one of my November craft shows, one of the other paper artists had used B&W hounds-tooth paper with pink and it was GOR-JUS. Since then I've had this idea in my head, but I've not executed it until now. The pink is SU Blushing Bride, which I like because it's kinda muted, which helps pink-challenged peeps such as myself. The sentiment I had to mount to use, and is a single SU stamp, but I don't think it's still available.

Because I thought the top pink part was boooooooring, I scored it (mostly evenly) every 1/2". Oh, and I've since straightened that ribbon.

In other news, I am home today to take delivery of my new Captain's Bed and have the old bed picked up (donated), along with my couch & chair & headboard & TV. This means I can craft in between events, and it also means I can go craft something snarky to make up for all this sugary stuff.

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Great idea adding the texture! Very pretty!

  2. The scoring...wow! Never would have thunk it, but it adds just the right something to the card. I love the black and white and pink...very pretty! I don't remember that sentiment, shame because that is a great one. I should probably take a closer look at the singles!

  3. WOW! This is stunning and elegant..not crooked at all ;)


I'd love to hear what you really think! :-)
