A card, and it's pink...

I've had occasion to send a few cards in the past few months ~ for birthdays, thank you's and farewell gifts.  So it's time to make a few more to have on hand "just in case".

There's a card challenge at Kaisercraft this month... the perfect incentive!  I took inspiration from the mood board and made a feminine card with soft pinks and creams, lace and pearls:

I omitted a sentiment so I can use the card for whatever occasion arises.

I'm also sharing my card at Frilly and Funkie for the Opposites Attract challenge.  Card making is always a departure from my comfort zone; my ratio of scrapbook layouts to cards is something in the order of 98:2 (last year I made 300+ layouts and only 6 cards).  Shabby chic is a style that I attempt only occasionally.

Simon Says Stamp - Work it Wednesday has a FLOWERS theme this month too, so my little card is getting shared around a bit!

Kaisercraft Enchanted Garden - Magic patterned paper
Kaisercraft Enchanted Garden - Rapture patterned paper
Kaisercraft Vanilla Weave cardstock
Kaisercraft Brown ink
Kaisercraft 3.5cm Cream paper flowers
Kaisercraft Pink flowers (from mixed pack)
Kaisercraft Basics pearls

Lace from my habby stash

Thank you for visiting my blog!
