The Card Concept Challenge #3 - Use monochromatic pink on your card.

Welcome to another Card Concept challenge. We had such a wonderful response to the last challenge with an amazing gallery of cards.
This week we would like you to make a card using pink in any of it's hues. Lots of scope for theme and style here. Have fun creating...........................................

For my card this week I wanted to use my new Technique Tuesday Chickadees stamp set. Unbelievably cute. :-)

I have used a DSP for the body and the Monday. The stitched oval, and  notebook dies are from Lil'Inker. The pink notebook paper is from Prima - Anna Marie, the sentiment is Avery Elle Handwriting Notes.
I chose to make the layering quite simple, but I felt it needed a little something extra for a bit of pizzaz. The stitched circles did the trick. The random and wiggly stitched lines were planned. :-) The stitching also repeats chickee's shape. Tick! The pink sentiment is white embossed then inked.



May you be happily in the pink this week!

I absolutely ADORE this card and as soon as I saw that sweet little image, I KNEW I had to find out where it was from and HOPED I could buy the set for me. Very excited that you shared that it was from Technique Tuesday and wonder how I missed out? Luckily, I quickly searched and found it easily available online and will have my very own set soon! Thanks so much for making such a cute card and for sharing...I think it will be really FUN for Spring and Easter Card and really LOVE how cute the chickie looks all paper-pieced! Super CARD!!!
