A Well-Deserved Break

In the midst of my March Masculine-card Marathon, I needed a break.  Not from crafting, mind you, heavens no!  I needed a break from my "boy supplies".  You know, the hemp twine, the kraft cardstock, the woodgrain texture plates.  Yes, I needed to create something absolutely, positively GIRLY.  We're talking about something thats undeniably pink, flowery, and pearly.  We're talking.... this!

This card is for no one in particular ME!  Ohhhh pink, how i've missed you so!

The floral paper is Springtime Vintage Designer Series Paper, layered on Rose Red cardstock  stamped repeatedly with the flourish stamp from Friends 24/7.  Isn't it neat how you get a striking tone-on-tone using rose red ink on rose red cardstock?

The floral focal point is also from Friends 24/7 (I absolutely ADORE this set, can you tell?).  I colored directly on the stamp with Rose Red and Pear Pizzazz markers, then stamped my image.  The 3 flowers are from the hostess set Punch Potpourri and punched with the super-cute coordinating Boho Blossoms Punch.   I lightly inked the edges, added a few pearls and that's all she wrote!

I'll be sharing the last of my masculine birthday cards later this week - It's for my brother and I don't want to spoil the surprise before he gets it =)
