cute card thursday - Pink and Grey

Over at Cute Card Thursday this week the theme is

Pink and Grey

They are not colours I normally put together but so glad this challenge made me do it as I love it now! Of course the BG papers are gorgeous so what's not to love?

I finally got around to making an easel card, been admiring them all around blogland for a while now but this week was the first chance I got to really take my time and enjoy making my card instead of the rush jobs I have had to do lately!

I got this adorable image from Denise a while back, gonna have to get this stamp I have loved using her!
I used the fantastic sketch over at Stamp Something this week. This week the sketch is designed by Denise,

I am also entering this card into the Spoonful of Sugar challenge set this week by Karen she gave us a recipe.
use 3 pieces of DP, one piece of ribbon, 3 flowers and 3 buttons. okay, so I got carried away with the flowers just a tad but the extra ones are only tiny!
It also fits into the ABC challenge which is l for layering.

we once again have a fantastic prize on offer over at CCT and the DT examples are fabulous as always, hope you can play along!

I went to a Stampin' Up class yesterday and we made this, isn't it sweet? We made 6 cards which fit neatly inside complete with envelopes. some lucky person is going to be receiving this as a gift later in the year and I signed up for the next class next month! It was great to meet up with other stampers, I hadn't met any locally up to then!

Thanks for dropping by, hope you have a great day!

A truly gorgeous creation Deb! I love the pink and gray combo, not one I would have chosen on my own either, but do really like it! Beautiful papers and accents, and fab job with the sketch too! Love all the details on the bottom of the easel card.

That little card purse is super cute! So happy that you've found a group to stamp with, always nice! Have a super day! :)
