Budding Beauties Dressed in Pink

Hello there, welcome back to my blog! 
I'm popping in late on this Thursday afternoon with a card that I contemplated for a day or two but just put together.  I saw the challenge at The Paper Players and wanted to play along, now I'm posting just in the nick of time! 

I couldn't wait to create with the tulips and beautiful cherry blossoms that arrived Monday in my order from The Greetery. Have a look! 

The stamp set is called Budding Beauties, and the images enabled me to heartily embrace pink! I also inked up the new Painterly Stripes background stamp to continue the color combo using WPlus9 inks. These are my very favorite pinks because they are bright and clean, not muddy hues.

 The images come together easily with layers of ink to add detail. In honor of the challenge and the occasion of new stamps, I added  a double bow of my favorite seam binding ribbon in pink, adhering the panel slightly off center. I did the vertical tic-tac-toe row using Pink, Die Cuts, and Ribbon. 

Thanks so much for you visit today! How are you keeping busy in your stay at home time? I will be back tomorrow with another project, see you soon. 

Be yourself
