Pale Red, Pale Red and More Pale Red

Well I didn't want to scare all my regulars, did I?

Those of you with an aversion to the fluffy side of crafting might want to avert their eyes.

I've gone and done it. Made a pink card!!! Ok - I teamed it with chocolate brown, but it is nearly all Pale Red - Pink!

I used a Rick St Dennis image called Valentyna Valentine. The new sweetheart in the Lovely Ladies range.

As you can see - not my normal style at all hahaha.
There're papers there from Basic Grey (with the brown swirls with pinks flowers), Authentique - Lovely collection - Both papers matted onto chocolate brown card, and a digi paper base from Bearly Mine Designs, who just happen to be sponsoring the challenge over at the Sparkle and Glitter with Rick this fortnight.
I have used the sketch over at Stamp with Fun for my inspiration.
We have a pink chiffon ribbon pleated onto a pale pink gold edged satin ribbon. Three pink rose buds gathered with some pink lace to form a doily under them. A home made pin with an ivory pearl, red heart and a clear sparkly bead. A spray of ivory pearls and in the top corner some more pearls ranging from chocolate brown through to pale pink.
The image was coloured with promarkers with just a touch here and there of glitter gel pens.
.I stamped in the top corner with a "real" stamp "All my Love". A set that came free with Card Making and Papercraft. Just the right size for this.

Normal service will be resumed within a day or so. I promise.

  1. I like how you try to refer to pink as pale red! Too funny! See? It must be catchy!! I've had pink on the mind myself lately. Beautiful creation and it shows that even creepy chicks can pull off pink (if they want to!).

  2. It looks wonderful Helen... without my glasses!
    Pale red hey? Ok... i wont use the P word either..... you've made a nice job... i actually quite like it.... if it wasnt for the colour,the fr-fru cutsy image, the ruffle and the bling it would be great! Damn its a good job we're mates....
