Shades of Pink

Today, I bring you my very first post and challenge for the
Very First Sweet Stamps Design Team.
 You can find the Sweet Stamps Blog is HERE .
For our first challenge,
we were challenged to use Pink as the main color and to use any
Sweet Stamps rubber stamp. 


I chose to use the stamp called Rose Oval.  This is 
such a great stamp and has many uses.  I sat here
trying to figure out if I wanted to cut the inside oval out
and have a card with a window, but in the long run 
I decided not to.  I just may make a window card with this stamp
in the future...

Here's a close up of my colored image:


I stamped the stamp onto Cryogen Iridescent White card stock 
with Memento Ink and colored with my copics.  
My main card base is cut out using French Scalloped Flair XL Stackers Nesting Dies.
I used the largest die to get an almost 6x6 card.

Please check out all the other great projects that the Design Team has made.  You can
see the list of blogs on the Sweet Stamps Blog.

Here is a peek at what the inside of my card looks like:


For the inside, I used the same dies and added another bow and a few swirls. 

Thanks for coming and checking out my project for Sweet Stamps.
