Thinking Pink.

Hello my friends, today I have a couple of "pink cards". Do you love pink? I do!! This week I found a lot of inspiration in blogland, one of them was Heather Scott at Oz-somestamps. I love her sketches and her video tutorials, so this week I decided to play her sketch and her Modified Retiform Technique.
Shall we start?

Heather's Sketch: I made a baby card, to be honest I struggled with the sketch, I don't know if I really like this card, maybe because I like to add a lot of layers and use my sewing machine, but at the end I convinced myself the card is pretty :)
The images I used are from "Oh Baby" by Gina K. Designs. The white shape was made using my Cricut machine and "A Child's year" cartridge.

Card Recipe:
Card Stock: Pure Luxury White, Lemon Drop, Innocent Pink (All Gina K.)
Ink: Pretty in Pink, Real Red.
Embellishments: Pink Button (Spring Collection GinaK), White Organdy Ribbon (Gina K)
Accessories: Cuttlebug, Swiss dots folder, Cricut, A Child's year cartridge, SU Corner punch, Fiskar's border punch, daubers, Circle Nestabilities, Sticky foam, Mini glue dots.

Modified Retiform Technique: I really like this card, :) For the technique I used Pretty in Pink (SU) and Desert Sand (Memento Ink). I followed the video step by step, it is very easy!! For the BG I used smARTworks stamps: "Stella" and "Weave" . The sentiment is from "Inside & Out" by Gina K. Designs. The scallop shape was cut using my Cricut Machine and "A child's year" cartridge. I added some Satin ribbon and tiny pearls.
I played the sketch challenge from Paper Crafts Connection Blog

Card Recipe:
Card stock: White Pure Luxury, Innocent Pink (both Gina K.. Designs)
