Be Happy

Pink seems to be my color this week, must have been those gorgeous pink roses in yesterdays post. So for Pink Saturday and Fashionable Stamping Challenge  #3 who are looking for Ribbon or Lace, I created this pretty in pink card. Had a special day with a friend, so I decided to share my happy mood.

The gorgeous  pink and black background paper is from the Heart Warming Vintage Collection "Classic" from the Flying Unicorn store. What I like about it is its double faced , so the recipient gets to see a pretty pattern inside too. I added  several different paper flowers and images of flowers to the corner. A stick pin I created and some heart silhouettes are there too. The lovely Gibson girl is a stamped image from Viva Las Vegas stamps. I fussy cut out the image, colored her in and added Stickles accents. Some lace ribbon, pink german scrap and a tiny ticket  with the sentiment that says "be happy" complete this piece.

Hope you will "be happy" this week.
artfully  yours, gerri

  26. Great pink tones in this piece! I also really like the pins you make. I just bought some recently so I could have a go at it, but haven't made it that far yet. You have a real knack for it though.

    I was so ill yesterday and got nothing done. But it looks like my PC is going back to the shop today so I'm hoping to post a few before it does, we'll see. But imfinally getting back around a bit to check in. I'm always inspired, Gerri, thanks!
