Just because

This card is for Mojo Monday 73 sketch challenge and this week's CCEE Challenge, which is a color challenge this week: pink, Kraft, and white. Anything with Kraft and I'm ready, LOL.

My base card is Whisper White with layers of Kraft, Pretty In Pink, and a luscious kraft DP by Bo Bunny called Lunch Sack Vine. I picked up a couple double sided sheets of this and I already know I need to get more while it's available. LOVE it!! The reverse is kraft with white vines (see below). The next element is Kraft with Pretty In Pink. The focal image was stamped on Whisper White with a stamp from Inkadinkado's Floral Flourishes set in Pretty In Pink craft ink and embossed with clear embossing powder. I added a Petal Pink Liquid Pearl to the center of the largers flower. It's matted on Pretty In Pink DSP from the Prints Pack and Kraft. Following the sketch, I punched a slot in one end of the focal image and ran a pink gingham ribbon through and tied it in a bow. I made a stick pin and added it to the bow, along with a couple of gold Dew Drops for balance. The sentiment was stamped on Whisper White with Close To Cocoa ink using a stamp from MFT's Essential Sentiments set. It was punched out with the Word Window punch, layered on Pretty In Pink and Kraft punched with oval punches and is up on 3M foam squares. I like this sketch and I really like these colors together--a nice soft look.

Thanks for droppin in!
