Rosy Pink Congratulations to you

For today's Pink Saturday, I am showing you a rather formal card. Its more a rosy mauve color than a pink, but I think it will do. It's a simpler style for me, but we all need a creative challenge. lol. And who you ask am I Congratulating? Well no one just yet, but I do make cards and tags to keep on hand just in case! Over the course of the year I make over 200 greeting cards, the most for Halloween and Christmas.

To make this card I used marbleized rose and green paper for the base. Added a rose color layer then the french floral dictionary page. A gold trimmed ribbon is topped with a "Congratulations" sentiment and a bunch of pink paper roses surrounded by a gold filigree metal piece that is....a buckle. You know how I love to repurpose my supplies!Some gold tiny German scrap around the edge and the card is all done.

Here's congratulating you all your art this week.
sincerely, gerri
"Congratulations"

  4. Very pretty. Is it a card? A desk pad? A hanging? I'm unfamilar with stamping and crafting like this.

  5. Happy Pink Saturday Gerri
    A beautiful card Gerri. Gorgeous paper.
    Always a good idea to have cards to hand whether congratulations or Thinking of You. Like yourself I make lots of cards. My Christmas cardmaking is underway but it dawned on me only yesterday (I am a bit slow!) this is August that leaves only 4 clear months of preparations Yikes!
    Today a 21st birthday card is on my mind so I really should step away from the laptop and get some work done.
    Have a wonderful weekend.
    Wishes

  16. Elegant and beautiful card. You're smart to keep some cards on hand "just in case". One must craft when the muse hits, not be rushed in to making something last minute.
