Brown and Pink for LIM

I love the combination of pink and brown particularly when the brown is as rich and chocolatety as this card from the Paper Mill, bought before their shops closed down. The flowers are from Dienamics dies and the holes from a Memory box die from Simon Says Stamp. (Mandi had the same idea totally independently from me.... we do think alike at times)
The sentiment is from a Cuttlebug die and the finishing touches are a length of pink gingham ribbon and a couple of brown pearls.
I love this negative flourish stamp from WOW, it both stamps and embosses so well. Here I used it for the backing and the butterflies.The embossing on the pink rectangle is from an SU folder.
This last one uses SU Bright blossoms set. My 4 year-old granddaughter had a great time stamping with these stamps last weekend. She coloured the individual sections of each stamp with markers and was really very careful about it. I was really proud of her. She'll be starting school next week, so I sent her a little card to wish her luck.
Here it is!

I'm not quite sure where I got the digi image for this one, maybe someone will enlighten me! I hope she has a great time.
Finally here is picture taken on our recent cruise.. We had a wonderful time... here's to the next time!

  6. Fabulous cards, love the WOW stamp used on the butterflies. I believe the image on your card for Daisy may be from Bugaboo, it seems to be their style. Hugs Lisa xxx

  18. As always, great cards...but I do believe that the first one is my favorite. I LOVE that word die. I've been trying to find the words, "happy" and "thanks" in a word die and haven't had any luck thus far. Great looking photo...a cruise sure would be fun. We took one about 20 years ago and I love it!
