Pretty in pink petals

My good intentions of stamping this weekend was hijacked with a jeeping trip with the hubby. Up in the mountains and SNOW. Oh my word that was so fun! Much more fun than the dusty trails in the summer. So not a lot of stamping but quality time with the hubby.  :-)

How about a birthday card I did earlier last week? This is from Abundant Petals with the matching die to the set. I wasn't sure where I was going with this card other than it needed to have lots of pink since the person it is for is a pink nut! :-)  I think I did it justice for her. Added some swiss dots texture to the base panel. Some designer papers in pink with white layers.
I  prefer to die cut the blooms out first and then I color the flowers. That seems to work better for me then if I mess up die cutting I didn't put all the work into the coloring. My faux stitching didn't go quite like I pictured because I am a dork, but hey its on there. A few sequins and some sparkles on the blooms. Voila!

My plans are hijacked all the time. Sometimes it's for fun and sometimes not so fun. Your weekend sounds super fun to me! I sure do love your pretty pink card! The big peony is gorgeous and the leafy print paper is so delicate and pretty. Your pink-loving friend will flip!

Oh, Stacy, you are so funny, and I just wish I could meet you in person. I think we would giggle a lot! Sounds like you and DH had a fabulous time in the snow! Great quality time is right. Well, i absolutely agree about this gorgeous pink card. It's a sensation, and I know your "pink nut" loved it! Hehe! Beautifully colored, and wow, I sure do love that layout and the DP. Made me chuckle about the faux stitching. It's perfect and really adds something special. Sending warm hugs and love! xoxo
