The elegance of pink, gray & white....

This is such a beautiful color combination....perfectly complimenting each other.  The OTWC #16 challenge happens to be these colors...so I decided to make a few cards for it.  I also did them with the "Classy & Elegant" Moxie Fab challenge in mind.

My first card features this beautiful chandelier stamp.  And while the colors are non-traditional, this would make a beautiful Valentine for someone special.  I think it would also be great for anniversaries, weddings, and any love occasion you can think of. 
"Be Mine...Always & Forever" supplies: 
Cardstock: Bazzill Basics
Paper: My Mind's Eye
Stamps: Gina K Designs (Fine Furnishings set) 
Ink: Clearsnap (Pigment: antique pewter) 
Rub-ons: Basic Grey (be mine) & Creative Imaginations (always & forever) 
Ribbon: Renaissance by Design
Flowers: Zva Creative
Pearls: Kaiser Craft 
Border Punch: Fiskars

Instructions:  Fold gray cardstock in half to make card base.  Adhere rub-on sentiments to the bottom of a white cardstock block.  Stamp the chandelier to the middle of the white cardstock block, and accent with pink pearls.  Adhere a bow to the top of the chandelier, and accent the middle with white paper flowers.  Punch two border strips from pink dotted paper, and adhere to each side of the white cardstock block.  Adhere the entire block to the front of the gray card base using dimensional adhesive. 

I am not sure if it is because I have either photographed or attended some weddings recently, but I have been in a wedding card making mood lately!  Love must just be in the air, or something.  Tee hee!
"I Do" supplies: 
Cardstock: Bazzill Basics 
Stamps: Renaissance by Design (Darling Damask set) 
Ink: Tsukineko (Chalk: pixie dust) 
Ribbon: Michael's brand
Flowers: Recollections
Pearls: Kaiser Craft
Corner Rounder: EK Success
Diecut Machine: Cricut Expression by Provo Craft
Diecut Cartridge: Tie The Knot by Provo Craft

Instructions:  Fold pink cardstock in half to make card base, and round the bottom corners.  Round the bottom corners of a white cardstock block, and stamp a damask pattern to the front of it.  Tie ribbon around the top, and accent the middle of the bow with paper flowers.  Adhere the white cardstock block to the front of the card.  Cut the tag at 2 1/4" using the Cricut Expression and Tie The Knot cartridge.  Cover the back of the tag with pink cardstock, and adhere it to the front of the card, tucking the top part underneath the bow.  Accent the three damasks underneath the tag with pearls. 

This card could be used for so many different purposes.  It would make a wonderful graduation card for a young woman graduating from any type of school.  It would be great for someone who recently got a new job or a promotion.  It could also just serve as an encouragement card for someone.  So many great reasons to send a card with a sentiment like this!
"Success & Dreams Come True" supplies:

Instructions:  Fold gray cardstock in half to make card base, and round the bottom corners.  Stamp an argyle pattern to a white cardstock block.  Cover the top and bottom with pink dotted paper, and round the bottom corners.  Adhere bloomers ribbon right above the argyle pattern, and adhere the entire block to the front of the card.  Stamp the sentiment above the bloomers, and then accent the card with pink & silver pearls.

This is the lovely inspiration photo that was posted on the OTWC blog.  Hmmm...maybe that is part of where I got the wedding inspiration.  Tee hee!
How about a movie post?  I haven't done one of those in a little while!  Here is what we have watched recently: 
  REALLY loved Invictus.  And even though I am going to Kenya, and not South Africa....it made me even more excited for the mission trip.  Very inspiring and amazing movie.  Valentine's Day was HILARIOUS.  We both laughed so much...especially at the Taylor/Taylor scenes.  They made the whole movie.  And When in Rome was okay.  Not my favorite movie of all time, but cute enough.  I won't ever watch it again....but it was cute enough to watch once.  

Well, there you have it.  Cards and movie info...hope that you have enjoyed the post!   

Until later,
~Lea
