Pink Birthday

Just a little while ago I uttered words not often heard in these parts. I was rummaging for paper, and I said (out loud), "Nope, that's not pink enough." I KNOW! *feels forehead* But you see, I was on a mission. I wanted to take the bonus OWH sketch I used last night:

and make some little girl birthday cards for OWH. Along the way I'd disappear some of that pink paper, too, which would be great! Well, I made cards, but not little girl, though they are (gah) pink.

As I rummaged, I realized just how much of the Basic Grey papers contain pink. It's truly amazing.

So anyway, I cut the papers wrong and ended up with too-big strips, but that's okay, because the sketch is just a suggestion. Here's my first card:

 AND, just so you know it was kismet, I cut strips of paper for 7 cards, then found I had only 7 cards bases in my box o'card bases, and as I used my MS Doily Tags, I realized I had 7 of them. Sweet.

Here's another pink one:

 and one that has some green in it:

Did you notice the pink pom-pom ribbon? The idea came from this card I saw while blurfing. It's pure genius, I tell you. So I added it to my plan to make pink, girly cards.

For my next trick:

Perhaps a little more child-appropriate? And they get to see ink, too.  I think it may be a critter weekend. :)

Thanks for stopping by!
