Think Pink Blog Hop

Close To My Heart has a cool "Pretty in Pink" promotion this month!  One of my blog hop groups thought it would be a great idea to showcase this special, and I couldn't agree more!  (If you're already hopping then you've probably arrived from Priscilla's Paperie blog.  From here you'll visit the amazingly talented Alyson next.)
My first card uses the CTMH/Cricut Flower Market cartridge to cut out these pretty tulips from Raspberry, Pixie, and Sweet Leaf card stock.  Notice how I used both light and dark sides of the Raspberry and Sweet Leaf card stock.  Since I am using up my stash of Pixie cardstock, I made it "two-toned" by sponging Pixie ink onto the second layer of my center flower and onto the Pixie cardstock of the flower on the left.
For the lightest layer of my center tulip, I brushed Bashful shimmer brush to give it some sparkle.  A piece of Adventure ribbon finished off this simple card.  (Notice how I made "grass" by cutting fringe on a strip of Sweet Leave cardstock.)
My next cards are all a variation on Pattern 9 from the new Make It From Your Heart, Vol. 4.  Each card uses Raspberry, Pixie, Bashful, and White Daisy cardstock plus Bashful glitter paper.  The XOXO and heart were both cut from the CTMH/Cricut Artbooking cartridge.
The Bashful paper is from the Gimme Some Sugar paper pack, and the pretty ribbon is from the Adventure ribbon collection.

Thanks for letting me share these Pretty in Pink projects with you!  I would for you to leave me a comment before heading on to the next blog.  Just click on her name to continue the hop to see Alyson's beautiful creation!
