Pink, with a splash of Pink

I've got a bit of a love theme happening today, with sweet Tilly the puppy from Wild Rose Studio. The whole card was inspired by the papers and I tried to match the colours used on my image to the papers.  I've got 2 new colours R81 and R85 and those have made their début today on the present!  I think they match the papers really well and are a gorgeous dusky pink.

I'm also really liking the double bow effect at the moment, and seem to do it on every bow now!  I got myself a little bow maker about a month ago, and love that I can now do double bows with it.  It works really well with this vintage style ribbon as the knot isn't too thick.  On the thicker satin ribbons I usually use a pearl brad to hold the bow onto the card, but it's not needed here.

I think you may have forgotten some (more) pink!! What a sweet image Annette and I love the papers. I like seam binding for bows too, they don't have too much bulk! xx

Hi Annette...

Loving this fabulous card... with all those gorgeous hearts and the sweet image. Glad you got R81 and 85, those, combined with R83 are my favourite pink colour combo.. I've had to buy new ones as I use them so much!

OOh and that double bow.. I have a bow maker and hadn't thought to use the different pegs for the back part... thanks for that idea!

Now... I think you know what I'm going to say about where your card belongs.... certainly in our 'love' challenge at In The Pink!

Big hugs
