Pretty in pink

Every week, I think of creating a card based on the 2S4U sketch first thing on Tuesday morning (the sketch is up by Monday night my time), but procrastination gets the better of me, and I end up creating the card earliest by Friday!! ;-)
This time, I broke my record, and created the 2S4U challenge card today!! :-)) Yay yay yay!!! I am pretty pleased with the result. I love the patterned paper I have used in today's card. I also bought a new stamp set today...hmm..not exactly a set, but yeah, all the stamps came in one box! I had seen the set earlier, but didn't buy it... don't know why. Anyway, it had been on my mind ever since...
My card recipe:
Cardstock: Metallic CS from the DCWV metallic sheets stack, patterned paper from Hobby Ideas, plain CS in pink, deep pink and chocolate brown
Stamps: Cake and Candle stamps from Hobby Ideas
Others: Pink sheer organza ribbon and pink satin thread from stash, locally available dry letter transfer (rub-ons), eyelets
PS: I also used Lulu's tutorial!! (yes, I know, doesn't look like it!)...LOL!!



  1. Very cute Smita! I love the paper that you used:)

  4. what a cute card!!

  5. What a pretty card. I love the cake...I actually thought it was an applique at first...so dimensional.

  6. ADorable!!! Love the cake :)

  7. Yeah you broke your record :) This is a very cute card and yes, you should be happy with it! The colors are lovely!!

  8. This is really cute! Thanks for playing along!

  9. Hey Smita!! I love your card! It's beautiful. . .that designer paper that you used has a really nice pattern and colors. Awesome job on your card!

    As for your question. . .I typically do one card a day but if it's a good day, I'll create two or a few extra cards but don't post them right away. I'll save them on days when I don't make a card. Sometimes if I have a lot of extra cards, I'll take a week off but post each card daily so it appears that I make cards on a daily basis.


  10. Sooo pretty Smita! I know how it is keeping up with challenges. Practically the only ones I manage to do on time are those for Design Team projects. I love 2 Sketches for U but have such a hard time with sketches. Great job! xxD
