Pretty in Pink

Hi everyone and Happy Monday :) I am home safe and sound and I survived prosecutor boot camp :) It was a long week and a lot of work, but I really learned a lot and met a bunch of super nice people. I am glad to be back home with hubby and the fur babies though. There truly is no place like home :)

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Now that I work for the government, I get a bunch of holidays so I'm lucky enough to have today off. I've been crafting up a storm this morning :) For my project today, I decided to join in on the Magnolialicious blog hop. The design team for Magnolialicious did a "Pretty in Pink" blog hop this morning, showcasing Magnolia images and lots of pink. Go HERE to start the hop and to also see all the details on how you can join in. You must check out the design team's creations, they are stunning! I decided to create another easel card (love these!). If you would like some instructions on how to create an easel card, go HERE. Here are some pictures of my card:









For my card today, I decided to use Dinner Tilda again (I just love this Tilda, she's definitely one of my favorites). I colored her with copics and then I cut her out. I added Glossy Accents to her cute shoes. I then created my card base. All cardstock is SU (Rose Red and Pretty in Pink) and all design paper is by My Mind's Eye (LOVE this paper company) :) I used my Martha Stewart heart punch on the side panel and at the bottom. I added a pink silk ribbon from Michael's and tied the bow using my Bow Easy (I got mine HERE. I cut an oval out using my oval nesties, and then added roses from Wild Orchid Crafts around the oval. I placed Tilda into the oval using dimensionals. I think she looks so pretty surrounded by the roses :) I added my sentiment, which is from Studio G and then added a pink pearl heart I found at Michael's as a finishing touch to hold the easel card open. What do you think?

Thank you all so much for stopping by today. I hope you have a wonderful day and I'll see you back here tomorrow.

Big Hugs, Christine
