Shades of pink for a birthday card.

Hi there!

Happy Monday everyone!

My mom is visiting from South-Africa... for 3 weeks! Can you see me smiling?
So while she's busy knitting... I'm in my craftroom for a while :)

I had a bad day yesterday where every attempt to make a card landed in the bin... and then this morning everything came together easily. Yay.




I just realized again today how much I love my Cameo... 

I did some faux embossing for my background.
 I then added color behind my main element by coloring the dots  with my Promarkers.

Challenge inspiration:

The card concept ~ Monochromatic pink {CAS-style}





Pile it on challenge ~ spots and or stripes

Thanks so much for visiting me today... may you have a great creative week!

Geweldige mooi kaart, Hannelie! Mooi is dat raamwerk met de tekst erin en de combinatie van embossing stippen met stippen op papier. Veel plezier samen met je moeder.

Love it - the idea of putting coloured dots behind the cut is genius - I was thinking it's a shaker card!

Cant imagine you having cards in the "trash" This is absolutely stunning.
Enjoy your Moms company

Michelle said...

Oh… so beautiful! How did you line up those polka dots so perfectly?!

Petra Swart said...

Joe, vrou, ek sou in twee geskeur gewees het tussen die breiwerk saam met moeder en die kaartjies maak - ek's mos mal oor albei!!!
Ek kan wraggies nie glo dat jy ook partykeer in die vullisdrom 'file' nie!! ...maar wat 'n lekker gevoel as dit na al die gesukkel net WERK soos hier, ne!!! Jou kaartjie is stunning - daai gekleurde kolle is so treffend en die hele ontwerp is net perfek!!! ...en JA ek kan glo jy is baie in jou skik met jou silhouette- enigiemand wat so kan toor met hom soos jy, sou in sy skik gewees het!!! (en ek is natuurlik groen van die jalosie, want daar sal definitief nie in die nabye toekoms geld wees vir my vir een nie!!! - sal maar net jou werk moet waardeer!!(en dalk begin spaar, ne!!)
Groete!
