If Raindrops Were Hearts

Hello friends,

It is time for a new In The Pink Challenge this week. I have the privilege to guest design for two challenges at In The Pink and really enjoyed making my cards for this lovely challenge blog. For this fortnight  the theme is Valentine’s Day and the only restriction is that your card must have lots of pink. I love hearts, pink and hedgies and that was my recipe for this card. The image is a Penny Black stamp and I used paper piecing for the umbrella. The little hearts are punched with a Martha Stewart border punch.

Challenges:

PB_HedgieFriends

The adorable hedgie

PB_HedgieFriends2

The sentiment stamped on heart

  • White and pink cardstock
  • Digital designer paper from Iralamija
  • Penny Black clear stamp set “Hedgie Friends”
  • Penny Black clear stamp set “Piece of My Heart” for sentiment
  • Spellbinders Nestabilities dies “Hearts “ ; ‘Scalloped Ovals” ; “ Fancy Ovals”
  • Martha Stewart border punch “Lace hearts”
  • Olba punch for leaves
  • Paper roses
  • Wax cord for bows
  • Pink gemstones
  • Lyra-Rembrandt  aquarelle pencils for colouring
  • Tim Holtz distress ink “Victorian velvet”
  • Skwiglues glitter “Sweetpea pink”

Thanks for visiting today and looking at my card. Hope to see your pink Valentine’s card at In The Pink challenge blog. Have a wonderful day.

Regards from South Africa,

Amelia
