Pretty in Pink and White





There is a challenge this week at Joan's Gardens that I wanted to enter along with many other talented card makers.  The guidelines were that it needed to be pink and white, it needed to have a border, and it needed to have at least one heart.

I made the flower out of many cut out hearts, and there are also hearts in the pink border along the right hand side of the card.  I wanted to include a scripture verse about the heart, so I added Proverbs 3:5 as a sentiment.  I think I will make two more of different styles, and give them to my daughters.  They are all such sweet "hearts".

I entered this card at Joan's Gardens, Word Art Wednesday and at The Sisterhood of Crafters blogs. 



So, now I have added another card following the same guidelines.  Here it is:





The border is white lace along the right hand side; the hearts are the little conversation candy hearts that show up every year around this time.  Another scripture verse, Psalm 33:21 carries the heart theme also.  I must say, working with pink and white has been quite a challenge, but it has been fun exploring the possibilities.  The wheels are still turning.  :o)  Another entry for Joan's Gardens.





I made one final card for the Joan's Gardens challenge, so that I could give one to each of my three daughters.  The third one has a border of pink and white striped ribbon, and lace around a heart that has the scripture from Psalm 13:5.  The bow looks red in the picture, but it is actually a dark hot pink. Little pink rhinestone gems finish the project.  I also sprayed it with pink glitter spray, but it is so subtle that unless the card is in the sunlight, it is hard to detect any glimmer.
