Girls Night Out

It's time for another Freshly Made Sketch challenge!  This week, the lovely Narelle from across the ditch in Australia is our hostess.  Check out Narelle's blog - she is the queen of layers and fussy cutting!

Here's the fabulous sketch Narelle has created for us.


I went pink and blue with my card this week.


I'm also entering this card into the pink & pretty challenge over at Curtain Call.  I don't often use pink so even though this doesn't have copious quantities of pink, it's pretty pink to me!

I stamped some images from Paper Smooches Free Spirits onto Xpress-it cardstock and colored them with Copics.  I cut it with an oval die and before removing the die, I sponged some Pool Party ink around the image.  It's hard to tell from the photo but the horizontal white strip is dry-embossed with the Chevron embossing folder.

The gorgeous sequins came as a freebie with my Winnie & Walter order and were perfect for this pink challenge!

Head on over to the Freshly Made Sketches website and check out the fabulous inspiration from the DT.  Every single one of the cards this week are gorgeous!

Thanks for looking.

Such a soft and pretty card! And I'd love one of those drinks! A girl's night out sounds perfect.

Such a cute matching stamp set and sentiment. The shading and colouring you've added are perfect and really show off this cocktail. The sequins are the perfect finishing touch - pink would have to be my favourite!

Just enough pink to keep it feminine without being fussy!

Rita Wright said...

Pinkalicious! :) I don't use it much either as I'm totally NOT a pink girl. Give me some blue and I'm happy. I would love a girls night out and a cocktail however.
