Sweet Stamps- Your Favorite Color

The challenge at Sweet Stamps  this week- show us your Favorite color....if you can pick just one.....
 I have a need for Sympathy cards recently......  a nice soft shimmery Blue will do....... I am loving the blues with a hint of teal in them lately too........
AND
I am in need of LOTS of Birthday cards this month.......
I am a lover of Pink as well....... What do you think???

 I used shimmery cardstock from Paper Temptress, and embossed the beautiful frame and sentiments in Queens Gold EP.  Be sure to use the antistatic pad so the EP stays put!  I used Parchment Vellum and White EP for the butterflies, and added pearls to the centers. I just glued down the centers of the butterflies.

Here are the supplies I used for these cards:

It's beautiful either in pink or blue!! Really does have a shimmer too. Since my favorite color is blue I'll go with that but do love it in pink as well.

I'm thinking that I love blue…and pink! Isn't it amazing how a similar design works perfectly with two different sentiments. The gold embossing is just wonderful here, Shelly it adds the perfect amount of elegance.

I think they both came out fantastic! So elegant with the pop of gold! I'm convinced there isn't anything you c an't do with paper!

Donna said...

Wow! These are spectacular! Very simple but so beautiful and elegant. I've been really lazy this week with creating and blogging. I am working on my blog post for the award you gave me. Thanks! I'm having trouble getting myself motivated this week. Sounds like we have more snow coming. Bummer!
