My Pink Stamper Design Team Call

Hi all!  I decided to try out for the My Pink Stamper Design Team.  Robyn's challenge for the opportunity to be on her DT was to create a card using her favorite colors - Pink, Green, Brown and 1 optional color.  I chose white as my optional color.


Propped open so you can see how it opens.

How it looks closed.


I made this card using my gypsy, Smiley Cards, George and Basic Shapes and Forever Young carts.  I started with the HA-P B-DAY phrase from Smiley Cards.  I welded a rectangle from George to the phrase and this became the card base.  I cut the base out of white cardstock.  Then I cut the phrase again at the same size as the 1st but in light pink and with out the rectangle attached.  I cut the girl from Forever Young.  She is actually holding a purse and I think has a flower at her waist but I chose to hide those on my gypsy and not cut them out.  Sometime at this small size it can be difficult to get a nice, clean cut.  Also my cutting mat is on it's last leg.  I have a couple on order that I hope to have by the end of the week :) 

Now to put it all together.  I layered the light pink phrase right over the white.  I dressed my girl in her little green dress and added stickles to her pink trim and a rhinestone to hair for a touch of sparkle

White cardstock - Georgia Pacific
Light Pink, Dark Pink and Brown cardstock - DCWV
Green cardstock is shimmery but I'm not sure who makes it.  It came in a paper stack that I loved so much, I only have scraps left.
Pink cardstock (dress trim) - LYB

If anyone is interested in the .gypsy file, leave me a comment and I can send it to you. 

This was really a challenge for me.  Usually the only time I would use Pink and Green together is with flowers and leaves.  I am proud of how this turned out!  I would love to hear what you think too.

Hugs
Carrie
