My inspiration for this card was the current color challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs' blog. The color scheme for the challenge is pink, ivory/white, and tan. I don't normally use pink, and so don't have a large amount of patterned paper that color. But I found two 6x6" pads in my stash: Recollections' "Valentine" and My Mind's Eye "Love Me." I used papers from each for the banners.

My design is based on this sketch by Operation Write Home:

I stamped this image from Our Daily Bread Designs on a piece of white cardstock, using a Stampabilities Light Pink pigment ink pad. I die cut the circle with a Spellbinders Classic Circles Large die, and inked around the edges with Antique Linen Distress ink.

I used Ranger Archival Jet Black ink to stamp the greeting onto a scrap of white cardstock. I pulled out my Lawn Fawn "Milo's ABCs" stamp set, since I didn't have any "ready-made" greeting stamps that would fit that piece. I did have to add the "+" and "=" signs with a black pen, since those symbols are not included in the set.

I cut the 3 banners from the Recollections & MME patterned papers, and adhered them to a piece of dark cream colored cardstock. I matted that with pink cardstock, and adhered that onto a white A2 card base. I adhered the focal panel & greeting with foam tape to help them pop a little more.

I am entering this in Our Daily Bread Designs' Color Challenge.


  1. Lovely Andrea! You should use pink more often! Love how you always create for OWH! Thanks for creating with us this week at ODBD!

  2. Oh, Andrea, I agree with Linda! You should definitely use pink more often! It's beautiful, and you've really rocked the OWH sketch for this week!
