TRR #19 Polka Dots in Pink!!
Hi wonderful blogging buddies!!
It's time for another Ribbon Reel Challenge and this fortnight Pauline, my lovely friend and fellow Design Team member is hosting a Pink Polka Dot extravaganza!!!
Pauline has provided this unashamedly girly photo for your inspiration and asks that you create a project using pink and Polka Dots, with Ribbon/Bakers Twine. Yummy, don't you think?
It was my fabulous sister's birthday yesterday, so I created this particular card in her honour. I created my own custom patterned papers by stamping pink dots onto Echo Park's Springtime collection using Papertrey Ink's gorgeous "Polka Dot Basics" stamp set. The main sentiment is stamped using a combination of two stamp sets - the "Birthday" is from PTI's Giga Guide Lines set and the "happy wishes and kisses" is from Waltzingmouse's Say It Loud set. I love getting the most out of my clear stamps in this way.
I then created a little polka dot banner using Waltzingmouse Stamps "Bitty Banners" set and some lovely little adhesive foam letters to spell out the word "Sister". then suspended it using some Cotton Candy Divine Bakers Twine from The Ribbon Reel and some little mini wooden pegs.
I used ribbon to separate my card into 3 sections using some delicious Pink Spot Organza and some Pink Twill which I gathered using needle and thread to create a soft ruffle.
I couldn't resist adding a beautiful pink and cream Gardenia, Hellebore and Cherry Blossom flower backed with Pink Crochet Lace and more candy pink bakers twine from The Ribbon Reel -I can't seem to stop using them!!
Have a wonderful week and don't forget to stop by the Ribbon Reel Challenge Blog to see what the other members of the Design Team have created using Pink and Polka Dots!! You can enter your card/project here and could win a wonderful prize from the Ribbon Reel Shop.
All the best,
