Think Pink Blog Hop

Welcome to the Think Pink blog hop. This blog hop features all PINK products by Close To My Heart, to go along with the February PINK campaign. You will see cardstock, glitter paper, patterned paper, inks, stamps, embellishments and possibly even more pink items along the way! Enjoy the tour!

You should have arrived here from Haley Dyer's blog.

If you get lost, a complete list of participating bloggers can be found on Melinda Everitt's blog

I chose to create a card using primarily the Gimme Some Sugar paper pack. Although it isn't entirely pink, the majority of it is pink. I wanted the flowers from that paper pack so the best idea was to simply cut them out from the hero paper and use them right on my card. I liked the tangerine ones so I wanted to include three of those as well. All the flowers were brushed with either the Bashful Shimmer Brush or the Clear Shimmer Brush - that can be seen better in the bottom photo. The ribbon was gathered and the scallop border was cut using the border die. The banner was purposely offset for interest, as were the pages. 
I worked on this card when several of the CTMH Cricut cartridges were down in Design Space so I had to create the pages and the ovals using free and basic shapes and manoeuvre them by slicing and welding until I had what I wanted...

The next blog on this hop is Vickie O'Dell's blog.
I am sure she has something wonderful (and PINK) to share with you.
