Pink & Brown fun

German Phrase of the Day: Der Fruehling ist hier. = Spring is here. And it's about time! We're starting to get some nicer days...although rain is still pretty common! Oh well, can't have everything, right?

Here's a quick card I made last week with my Look Who's Perky set from Paper Pretties. I did a light pink watercolor wash on the stamped paper before coloring in the swirls for the frame with my Close to Cocoa marker and then cut it out. Next, I watercolored the sugar bowl pink and brown also and cut it out. I popped it up on the frame, then punched out the greeting, did the wash on it, and then sponged on some chocolate chip.

The card base is chocolate chip with a layer of Pretty in Pink stamped with the linen background in creamy caramel with chocolate chip sponged on to the edges. I finished the card off wtih some pink and chocolate grosgrain ribbon. It's a super quick and fun card to make...and I love the swirly frame!

Hope you all are having a wonderful Monday! This card along with many others will be going out to members of the Paper Pretties RAK group this if you aren't a member...what are you waiting for? And if you your mailboxes!! :-)
