AEI{heart}U Challenge

Saturday, October 17, 2015

Hi there!
I was busy with my sick kids this week, but finally got about an hour to play! It certainly is nice to get away from the realty and just create ;-) Of course I love my kids more than stamping, but you know we all need "me time" to keep our sanity! 

I decided to play along with the AEI{heart}U Challenge over at Avery Elle. 

Challenge 29

Ooh, how fun is this!?
Here is my pretty in pink card...;-)

I wasn't sure how much time I had for myself so it needed to be simple.

I used my favorite pinks from Stampin' Up!, Blushing Bride and Calypso Coral. 
I was going to die cut the sentiment in Calypso Coral but I thought that would be too sweet. Well, isn't Pear Pizzazz just so lovely against the pink and gold!?
I am currently in love with little pleats, I simply fold (usually vellum) randomly and sew it on. They look fabulous behind or/and underneath sentiments! I think I placed it too high on this one...

Those stripes were made with the Brushed stamp set, I love it!
My coral flowers are from the Oh Happy Day stamp set. I stamped that star burst thing on the flowers with gold ink, I  love Calypso Coral and gold together!

The Wonky Stitches Die has to be my most favorite die from Avery Elle, it's just so much fun! Just add some sequins and this card was done! I wanted to add more layers but the pinks had to stand out, so kept it clean ;-)
