Thinking Pink at Just Magnolia AND some more PINK SWEET STUFF!!!!
A very happy Friday evening to everyone! I hope that you have finished a marvelous week and are prepared for an exceptional weekend. I have been surprised by my little Auntie, who is taking me to Atlantic City in the morning for a little getaway until Wednesday evening! So who knows what is in the cards or even the penny machines for that matter..lolol...keep your fingers crossed for me!! Wink!!
This week at Just Magnolia we are all THINKING PINK and I am so touched that my teamies have stepped up to the plate to make everyone aware of the importance of breast cancer self-exams, mammograms, and just general knowledge of the importance of being AWARE!!!! Thank you so much Just Magnolia DT members...you are the very best!!!!! Gosh the PINK cards done by all of the DT are breathtaking this week...each and every one of them certainly brought tears to my eyes at their beauty and their meaning to me personally! I do hope you will grab all of your PINKNESS and a Maggie and join in with us this week to make even more people AWARE!!!! The magnificent prize we are offering this week is from the generous Wild Orchid Crafts and is truly amazing. WOC has the most gorgeous flowers and other embellishments that you can ever imagine!!!
For my DT Sample Card I used Bazzill for the base, PTI for matting, and all of the DP is digital and I cannot remember where I got it...To the best of my memory the name of it is Courage. All panels were machine stitched. I used stamps from The Pink Collection 2008--Pink Tilda Ice/Ballet Princess and the Strength, Cure, Hope Circle from Magnolia-licious. Both were stamped on Cryogen White, colored with Copics and a touch of Star Dust Stickles and placed on double mats of Nesties. For the horizontal I used some beautiful pink trim which was a gift from the very talented Suzan--Thanks, Sweetie!!!,and pearl configurations, adding a pink organza bow with a dangling pink ribbon charm. The floral treatments on the entire card are luxurious flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts resting on a base made with leaves from Leaf and Swirl Die set. All of the flowers were touched with a bit of Stickles.
For the inside of the card, I used a horizontal on the first panel made with pink organza and pink satin, adding an organza bow and two pink awareness ribbons with a bit of MS punch outs and more WOC flowers. For the jotting panel I used a Nestie surrounded by more trim, adding a flat bow to the top and a BC awareness ribbon to the bottom.
I hope you like my THINK PINK creation and will let me know what you think of it...I also hope that you will decide to join with us at Just Magnolia so that we can ALL be THINKING PINK!!!!
