...Crazy 4 Pink (C4C21)

Happy Saturday! It's time for another "crazy" challenge at the Crazy 4 Challenges Blog, and Lori Boyd has been rocking out the challenges this month! This week you're asked to use pink as your main color. I used one of the sentiments from Verve Stamps' new set called "Heart's Desire", and paired it up with several pieces of patterned paper from K & Company's Smitten collection. I punched out a variety of circles, then distressed the edges of each one. I attached each circle to the card base using Dimensionals, then added a couple of rows of stitching. The sentiment was cut out using the Mega Curved Rectangles Nestabilities Die and the Big Shot. I added some Hot Pink Rhinestones for a little sparkle, then sponged the edges of the Sand card base with a Sand Ink and a Sponge.

Now let's see what the rest of the design team have created for you to peruse:

That's it for today! Thanks for stopping by to see me today. Now it's your turn to create a card or project using pink as your main color, and share it with us. Be sure to add your creation to Mister Linky back at the Crazy 4 Challenges Blog post...we can't wait to see what you come up with! Until later...

Accessories: circle punches (1", 3/4", 1/2"), distressing tool, dimensionals, sewing machine, nesties, big shot, rhinestones, sponge
