CAS-ual Fridays #58: Pretty in Pink & MIM # 71: Bordered Sentiments

This weeks CAS-ual Fridays challenge is to make a project featuring pink and Make It Monday was to use masking to create a project with a bordered sentiment.  I combined the two challenges.  Stamping isn't as forgiving as cutting paper, when I was adhering my panel to the card base I noticed that I had a Sweet Blush smudge on the upper right hand corner.  So I covered it with another flower, great way to hide a mistake, but the card ended up busier than I originally planned.



All Supplies are from Papertrey Ink unless otherwise noted:

Cardstock: White, Sweet Blush, Sweet Blush Bitty Dots
Stamps: Sending You, Think Big Favorite #15
Ink: Sweet Blush, Raspberry Fizz, Simply Chartreuse (PTI), Tuxedo Black Memento (Tsukineko)
other: black Zig pen, Rhinestones (Kaiser), Corner Chomper (We R Memory Keepers)

Wow, I think it turned out great! The extra flower in the corner balances the others so nicely--I wouldn't change it! Love these colors and those stamps--I want 'em!

This is so pretty. I forgot about that CAS Friday's challenge. Love the stamp set you used--I've got it out today, too, for something else. You should not have confessed your mistake. It looks like a great design to me!

Hi Tracey! This is lovely! I don't think it's too busy at all. I like the blocking of the sentiment in the center - great technique! Have a great day! :-)

I actually like it with the additional flower at the top. Very clever to hide the mistake. ;-) This is a really pretty card. Those Sending You blooms are some of my favorites, as well. Great job!

I am not much of a flower person but this card is awesome and makes me want that set now. You really did a wonderful job on this card and your sentiment lined up so perfectly. Love the bling on the flowers too, a great little touch.

This is so pretty, Tracey! You hid the smudge so well (I do things like that all the time...)! Love all the pink and the polka dot paper goes so well with the stamped flowers!

Great job with the masked sentiment! Those flowers make a perfect frame! I totally thought that the "extra" flower was meant to be there! Not too busy, just right for balance:)
