elegant blessings

Morning everyone! Did you know it is almost Friday? Woohoo! Do you have any big plans for the weekend? We've got some fun stuff planned...yay!

Each Monday the senior design team of Sweet N Sassy Stamps has a senior design team challenge. This week it was to use pink and brown or pink and orange. I just used some pink and orange just the other day so pink and brown it is!

This lovely card is made with the SNSS set called Elegant Blessings. It is a lovely set that includes two crosses (this is the smaller of the two) and several sentiments that are good for encouragement, sympathy, or even thinking of you. First I inked up the cross in Pink Pirouette and then I rocked the edges in Close to Cocoa. I used some adhesive pearls to a little dimension and class and the white satin ribbon just finishes it off perfectly.

So, which color combination will you use? Just upload your card to your favorite online community (or blog) with the keyword of SNSMC17 and then link it back to the SNSS blog!

Now...I'm off to work on two more cards for this weekend! Have a super day everyone!

Card deets:
Card stock: Close to Cocoa, Pink Pirouette, Whisper White, Candy Cane Lane DP
Stamps: Elegant Blessings
Embellishments: White Satin Ribbon (PTI), Adhesive Pearls, Dimensionals

Lorie,
I love the rocking idea! So you loaded your stamp with the pink & rocked the edges in the brown?
