Off the Wall Craftiness, Caardvarks, and My Pink Stamper

Today was a day to try to participate in some challenges which is always fun. :) I am participating in a few new ones. One of those new ones is called Caardvarks. Their challenge was clean and simple stamping.

I love participating in Kim's challenges at Off the Wall Craftiness and this was our inspiration photo:

Lastly, My Pink Stamper is having a challenge where anything goes so this one and the next one will both qualify for it! :)

This is an A2 sized card which Robyn would tell us over and over is 5.5x4.25" - but thank goodness because now I know it! I am ready to take the My Pink Stamper quiz! haha.

The white base is Bazzill™, the dark pink is Core'dinations™, and the light pink is actually white card stock. I inked up the Love is in the Air™ embossing folder and then embossed it so that everything ELSE was pink and the embossing was white. It's a technique I picked up from one of the design team members at the Cuttlebug Challenge before I was asked to be on the DT. I love learning new things. :)

I added some ribbon, some Hero Arts™ adhesive gems and adhesive flower, and cut the butterflies from the Gypsy Wanderings™ borders option and hid all of the detailing since I was going to cut it so small.

I hope you like it. It makes me smile and I can't wait to give it to one of my chick friends for their birthday!
