Pretty In Pink Blog Hop and PINK SWEET STUFF!!!
Happy Monday and WELCOME to the Magnolia-licious Pretty In Pink Blog Hop!! I am so happy to see you!!! If you arrived here first, please start at the Magnolia-licious Highlites site to begin your merry, pink way along the hopping trail!! If you have arrived here from the marvelously talented Becca, you are on the right track!! So welcome again!!
For my card I used an absolutely darling Tilda that has not been released yet but I think she must be in the upcoming Wedding Collection which you will see very soon at Magnolia-licious...I just couldn't resist giving you a wee peek of a cutie who will be on her way soon!! I used Bazzill for the base, PTI for all matting, and the DP is a combination of MM and digitals. All panels are machine stitched and Tilda is colored with Copics and I added tiny seed pearls on her shoes.
The lace I have used on the front was hand-crocheted by my grandmother in the 1940's and I know she would be happy to see me using lace that I saved from one of her table cloths. I wove narrow pink satin ribbon through the lace before adding all of the tiny bows. I also used a pink paper lace doily and a small bouquet of pink roses as well as a ribbon treatment with heart charm for little Tilda to sit on. The front was finished with half pearls on the corners.
On the inside of the card I used more pink paper lace doilies, more satin bows, and a couple of rose charms.
To match the card I decorated a clear paint can with bits of lace, more roses, and ribbons and bows and another Tilda. I also made a couple of small gift bags adding a bit of Stickles for sparkle and a bit of lace and ribbon.
So here is a bit of SWEET STUFF for some lucky winner who leaves a comment below before Monday, January 25, at Noon EST. I would appreciate it greatly if you would mention my Sweet Stuff on your blog if you have one and also tell all of your friends about the Pretty In Pink Blog Hop!! I have filled the gift bags and paint can with pink embellishment surprises, and then there is a box of Strawberry Truffles, a set of Pink Valentine Socks, a small Pink Notebook, a Pink Mini-Organizer, a Pink Canister of Yum-Dilly S'Mores, and last (but not least) a Pink Marshmallow Lollipop!!!
