Seize the Birthday - Use Pink

Ok, I know I don't usually say a whole lot in my blog posts. This week has been a series of short and sweet posts and this evening is no different. Tonight my card is for the new Seize the Birthday challenge.
Be sure to take a peek at the blog because they have some extra special news to share. Congratulations Jenny.
I was so determined to make this pretty pink paper work, just look at it all girly and such :) I am so not girly. I admit I struggle with the feminine cards, but I am happy with the end results.
I heat embossed the sentiment and it is popped up with foam tape, I inked the edges of the designer paper and used lots of layers. I even added a little texture to the brown strip.  I just had to work the sentiment on the DP into the card and I finished with a couple of sets of deep brown sequins.

Supplies: Cream and brown card stock, Designer Paper - Glitz, Papertrey Ink - Birthday Bash Sentiments, sequins.

  5. Goodness Nina,

    I must come here more often, commenting is like writing a book, I'm so far behind. Sorry to be so neglectful.

    How is it you do soft pink/chic so well as well as all your neutral and manly man cards. You amaze me.
