Pink and Navy...one of my all time favorite color combos. I was sooooo very excited when I saw these were the challenge colors over at Create With Connie and Mary this week! I also needed a birthday card for one of my very best friends and it just so happens Seize The Birthday challenge blog launches this week with a fun sketch geared toward all things girly. Perfect!
I started by stamping the main panel in Midnight Muse ink with a stamp from a brand new set of mine from SU called Affection Collection. I used my labels 3 die from Spellbinders to cut it out. I also did a little sponging with Pink Pirouette ink around the edge of the die to make a subtle frame. Then, I ran my brayer over my Illumination ink pad and brayered the shimmery ink right onto the main panel! I love how this turned out! I also inked up the Lacy Brocade EF with the same and ran it through the Big Shot. It gives a little shimmer to the raised background.
I liked this look so much that I also brayered over the Friend label and the little banner in the corner. Some pearls, as well as the designer paper and ribbon all work together to finish off my card.
