The Sweet Stop Challenge SSS215

The Challenge was to make a card following the sketch and the spin is "its a girl thing".  So I made the girliest, pinkest, foofooest card I have ever made in my life:

Lol now that I think of it, I should have colored some lace pink and thrown that on there too!

Supplies used:  Basic Grey Euphoria collection patterned paper, Bazzill pearlized cardstock, Crafter's Companion Ultimate cardstock, Offray and one unknown ribbon, a pink brad, a stamp that I don't know who made, Memento Tuxedo Black ink, Spectrum Noir markers to color it in, a Nestabilities scalloped oval die, and a flower punch from EK Success.  Whew.  And all this after the "clean and simple" card lol.

And I've had too much caffeine today, so I may be up later still working on cards.

Did I mention that most of my cards are going to Operation Write Home (OWH)?  That's why they are all A2 sized- not much room for big embellis but just big enough to showcase one or two.  Do you make cards?  Have a stockpile made and still make more?  Start making them in A2 size, and visit the OWH website, and get rolling.  They will even send you a stamp to put on the backs of your cards to identify them as OWH.

Help our Soldiers stay in touch with home!
