Hello!  It’s the third Monday of the month, which means it’s time for a new challenge at Cards in Envy.  This time we have a color challenge for you – “Tickled Pink”.  You can make your card for any occasion or theme you like, featuring the color pink, with no lumpy, bumpy embellishments that would prevent the card from being mailed at the first class postage rate.

I actually made two “twin” cards for this challenge, so that my family could send one to my parents and one to my husbands’ parents for Valentine’s Day.  The layout for this card comes from the current Freshly Made Sketches challenge.  I’ve used scraps of two different designer papers for the crossed strips elements.  The heart was cut from white cardstock, embossed using one of my favorite embossing folders, and then sponged with pink ink to highlight the embossing and to give a little definition to the edges of the heart.  A few scrap cardstock shims attached to the back of the heart help to raise it over the crossed strips.  The sentiment banner is attached with dimensional adhesive so it can “float” above the heart.  Since these cards were given from my family, I didn’t want the sentiment to read “I love you”, so I stamped the “love you” from one stamp and the “we” from a different stamp in the same set.
